Nick Cannon Won't Let Mariah Carey Do 'American Idol' For Less Than $100 Million

“America’s Got Talent” host Nick Cannon said that he won’t let his wife Mariah Carey do “American Idol” for less than $100 million! We knew that Mariah was said to be in talks for the upcoming twelfth season of the talent competition, but we didn’t think it would cost the powers that be that much money. Can they even afford to entertain that idea?

Reportedly, Mariah was being considered to fill the vacant judging seat that has been left by Jennifer Lopez, but her husband wants it to be worth their while. In a new interview, Nick revealed, “They want her, I know that….but I ain’t letting her outta the house for less than $100 million. They’ve got to step it up if they want that. That’s Mariah Carey, she’s got more number ones than anyone ever. She’s the biggest singer/songwriter in the history of music; that’s worth something. And who’s gonna watch my kids if she does on American Idol?”

So basically she is interested, but we’re doubting that the “Idol” producers are flocking to sign any checks that big. What do you think? Is $100 million too much to pay for just one judge — or is she worth that? Hit the comments with your thoughts!
