Hollywood gossip has it that MARIAH CAREY will reportedly be getting almost $18 million from being the newest judge on the upcoming season of “American Idol.”
Apparently, FOX offered the singer price that dwarfed Jennifer Lopez‘s earning of $12 million from her first season of judging on the show 2 years ago and Britney Spears‘s $15 million offer for her “X Factor” stint.
According to TMZ, sources close to the show revealed:
“Mariah Carey just became the HIGHEST PAID JUDGE in reality television … because her one-year deal with ‘American Idol’ is worth close to $18 MILLION”
One can only wonder how much more she’ll be getting if she decides to continue after her first year on the show…
But the question now is, do you think her judging skills will be worth the money?
