‘American Idol’ seeks replacements for Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler
Mariah Carey, the reported front-runner for one of the empty judges seats, the 42-year-old diva would provide one of the few A-list names big enough to replace J.Lo and eclipse Spears on "The X-Factor."
Mariah Carey is in talks to join American Idol as a judge, reported by People."She's in play," an insider tells the magazine. "They are in serious talks."
The report comes a day after Steven Tyler's exit and amidst heavy speculation that Jennifer Lopez also won't return for Season 12. Lopez told Today's Natalie Morales on Thursday, "it's maybe time for me to go."
