It’s quite ironic how the two musical stars have always been dubbed as rivals and now they are both being considered for the same position.
Lopez was recently taken out of the equation after her “diva demands” were too much for Idol producers to handle. But, now another known diva wants to be thrown into the mix and the reality series is considering it.
“Mariah wants it,” a source tells E! News, adding that her husband’s success in prime-time has been a big influence. The source also dished that Mimi has seen what America’s Got Talent has done for her man and thinks it would be a “good career move.”
Cannon previously spoke on his wife’s involvement with Idol, telling The Hollywood Reporter that she’s been toying with the decision to join the show as a judge. “She talks about it,” he revealed. “She says, ‘I would love to do that.’ She is one of the greatest singers of our time; she would be great.”
I think this is absolutely great news, especially if Mariah is indeed pregnant. It’d be a chance for her to take it easy and still be involved in the music industry that she desperately loves.
Do you think Mariah would be a good fit for American Idol?
