Mariah Carey signed on to what she believed would be a three-person panel on American Idol and revealed to Hot 97 in a new interview that she really hated her experience on the hit singing competition.
She likened her experience on the show to “going to work every day in hell with Satan.”
She said, “Nah, I’m just playing. It didn’t affect me that much — I was just disappointed.”
The best part of her time on the show was working with all of the contestants. She said, “I loved the contestants. And some of them that were so good – and really good people, you could tell – it was disappointing when they would, for political reason, not put people through. I’m like, ‘I don’t need to sit here and do this.’ I would prefer to just put this person in the studio, record a record with them. Or tell another producer, ‘Yo, you should produce this artist because they’re beautiful, they can sing, they’re talented.”
Did she sound like she was playing about the show?
Harry Connick, Jr. is set to be revealed as the latest addition to the American Idol lineup after he reportedly signed up to join Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban on the judging panel for the hit singing competition.
The producers of the show were said to be scrambling to fill the seats left vacant following the departure of Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and veteran judge Randy Jackson earlier this year, and have recently been in talks with producer Dr. Luke and Scooter Braun to help find the next Idol star.
However, those negotiations fell through and executives at Fox are said to have asked Connick, Jr. to return following a number of successful guest appearances on the series throughout the years. According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, the jazz singer made the deal official by attending a private party hosted by Idol producer Simon Fuller in Los Angeles on Thursday, where Urban and Lopez were also on hand to toast the imminent announcement.
Urban is the only star returning as a judge from the 12th season of Idol – Lopez stepped down from the panel of experts last year after two seasons. Connick, Jr. has been a longtime fan of American Idol and previously admitted he had been approached to take on a role as a talent judge years before – but the timing has never been right.
He said, “The last time I was here, I was so flattered, that they were kind of talking about it, and it didn’t work out. There were a lot of things going on on their side and a lot of things going on on my side with just stuff. It’s hard to make a commitment like that… What I’ve done thus far on the show has been really fun, so I’ve had a great time… Who knows what’ll happen in the future.”
Lopez’s boyfriend Casper Smart recently unveiled the news via a slip of the tongue about her return as judge on the show.
