Mariah Carey -- Who Needs Records or Tours? Just Join Idol for one Season and you make $17 Million


Fox just confirmed Mariah Carey is the newest judge on next Season's American Idol.  JLo and Steven Tyler left and it was "a mutual decision from both Jennifer and Steven" (although Fox made JLo at the time the highest paid "reality" star in history and ratings still declined).  Mariah says, "thanks JLo."  Still no word on whether or not last-original-judge-standing Randy Jackson will be back but don't feel too sorry for him -- he's Mariah's manager and cut the deal for her so he just made at least 20% of $17 million...not too shabby....
