Well, as the saying goes, “it ain’t over ’til the fat lady sings“. But, somehow, this rumor looks and feels just about right.
If all goes well during the final negotiations between Mariah Carey and American Idol, it looks like the diva songstress will be sharing her advice and guidance as judge on Season 12 of American Idol.
And, I really do think that experienced American Idol judge, Randy Jackson, will be seated beside her – for a couple of reasons.
First and foremost he is her manager and, therefore, she would feel very comfortable with him by her side.
Secondly, American Idol needs Randy’s experience to smoothly guide the audition process.
Quite frankly, I had little issue with Randy last season. I found him to be more helpful and, certainly, more coherent than in seasons past. Except for the “I hate Broadway” thing, he is actually a very strong judge.
And, if they add, say, American Idol alumnus, Adam Lambert, as the third judge, Adam’s strong theatrical background would recognize this level of artistry in the Top 12. Plus, he is an extremely diverse artist. Rumor has it that he has already been approached.
I am actually excited about the prospect of this threesome serving on the panel. How about you?
