Mariah Carey, American Idol Season 12 judge for $18 million!

Mariah Carey is American Idol's one of at least 2 new judges for its Season 12, airing January 2013.

Mariah Carey herself confirmed her 'American Idol 2013' judging stint on Twitter yesterday following the official announcement by FOX, the network that airs 'American Idol', last Monday, July 23. "It's gonna be so much fun working on @AmericanIdol. As a singer-songwriter, I'm excited to help find and nurture new talent," she tweeted on Tuesday, July 24.

This is totally one wonderful news for the American Idol fans, including this blogger. In fact, in my previous blog post, I stated that Mariah Carey and Adam Lambert are my top bets from a list of possible American Idol Season 12's new judges.

And now that Mariah is confirmed to be joining the show, I'm hoping that Lambert is next to be announced as another new judge in 2 weeks time. Mariah Carey and Adam Lambert will definitely have great chemistry in the show.

TMZ has reported that Mariah Carey will be getting $18-million as American Idol judge. That's $3M higher than Britney Spears' $15M salary as 'The X Factor USA' judge and $6M higher than Jennifer Lopez's $12M pay for her first season on American Idol in 2010.

But whether it's too high or not, Mariah Carey is a worthy addition on American Idol.

Can't wait for Mariah, a real diva and a true music idol, criticizing voices and giving advices on American Idol Season 12! -
