MARIAH CAREY JOINS AMERICAN IDOL at $18 MILLION DOLLARS

“It’s gonna be so much fun working on American Idol. As a singer-songwriter, I’m excited to help find and nurture new talent. LYM! – MC”

That’s what Mariah Carey stated on her Twitter account after scoring a 1 year gig to judge on American Idol for a cool $18 Million Dollars.

This is by far the highest a judge has been paid on either American Idol or X Factor. Jennifer Lopez had a contract of $12 Million her first year on American Idol and Brittany Spears’ current X Factor contract was $15 Million.

Think Nick Cannon is angry he has like 50 jobs and still can’t make as much as Mariah’s one?
