Mariah Carey is still in the running to take a seat at the judges’ table on the ill-fated 10th season of American Idol, premiering in January. The “We Belong Together” singer has reportedly been talking to the show’s producers and may sit alongside her former producer Randy Jackson and the newest member of the panel, Aerosmith Steven Tyler, E! Online reports.
“She wants it,” a source tells the site.
Mariah was reportedly inspired to take the world of reality TV by storm after watching the impact husband Nick Cannon’s gig as host of America’s Got Talent has done for him.
“She’s seen what America’s Got Talent has done for him and thinks it will be a good career move.”
Other stars that have been rumored to take over the role as a judge on the hit TV talent show include Jennifer Lopez, Justin Timberlake, and Elton John, though there have been no official negotiations with any of these celebs yet.
