Report: Mariah Carey Faces ‘American Idol’ Ax / Jennifer Lopez To Step In As Replacement ?

Published: Wednesday 24th Apr 2013 by David

She’s the Pop icon boasting one of the greatest voices to grace the world of entertainment.

Unfortunately, by way of a personality that only seems to function when her accomplishments are being relayed to her by doting fans, Mariah Carey‘s arrival on FOX‘s ‘American Idol’ has been anything but triumphant.

So fruitless, that reports allegedly pulled from ‘knowledgeable’ sources reveal the show’s producers put plans in place to ax her and replace her with former judge Jennifer Lopez.

Full story below…

 MTV reveals:

It’s no secret that this has been a rough season for “American Idol.” With buzz on the top 10 at a low boil at best and ratings off by double digits for the second season in a row, the once untouchable prime time champ has been on the ropes.

“That might explain why, according to the Hollywood Reporter, producers were so desperate to turn the beat around that they considered shaking things up in recent weeks by dumping highly paid, but lackluster new judge Mariah Carey with former two-season panelist Jennifer Lopez.

Citing unnamed “knowledgeable” sources, The Hollywood Reporter magazine said Carey’s team responded with the threat of legal action, which scuttled the plan. Even so, the story claims that the show’s producers are still negotiating with Lopez to appear on the show’s May finale, even as a search has already begun to replace Carey, and possibly fellow newbies Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban, and even lone original judge Randy Jackson.

“This is just another ridiculous ‘Idol’ judge rumor, likely started by talks of Jennifer performing on the finale,” a Fox spokeswoman told the Reporter in a statement; a spokesperson for the show could not be reached for comment at press time. “Idol” producer Nigel Lythgoe seconded that emotion, saying, “I have not been included in any conversation regarding replacing Mariah with Jen this season.”

With producers worried about the downward ratings slide, the Reporter said they thought a surprise judge switcheroo might help reverse the trend. Part of the problem is that despite her multi-million salary, Carey has proved to be a bland judge, prone to rambling, vanilla comments that haven’t provided many breakout moments.”

As explained above, this report has been denied by ‘Idol’ themselves.

However, with the show failing to make a return on the 18 million dollar investment they made on securing her spot, it’s no wonder this report has caught on as quick as it has.

For, as anyone who watches the show week on week can attest to, Carey’s critiques of contestants and general demeanour on the show lack the vitality Lopez and Abdul brought to the table during their run.

With this in mind, it’s no wonder ‘Idol’ may be eyeing Jennifer as a potential replacement, with the current panel kept afloat by the cool, calm and hilarious Keith Urban and the charismatic Nicki Minaj.

  2. Navy Sailor!!! April 24, 2013

    I love Mariah, but it doesn’t seem like shes needed on AI…..well from what I saw….

  3. Navy Sailor!!! April 24, 2013

    It doesn’t matter if they bring Jesus in to judge…people will not watch. AI has run it’s course. It’s boring. All of those talent searches are.

  4. DAMIEN April 24, 2013

    Okay, I LOVE M.C, but I must admit – her demeanour on the show has been far too droned and she hasn’t really interested me this season; at times, although she is charming, she seemed to lack general charisma and just went along and agreed with Randy all the time. I didn’t feel that she was her “own” judge. Nicki was far more witty and entertaining watch…

    That being said, she is one of the most iconic B****** in music today and she is worth way more than this show, which has been pure fuckery since fantasia won; 2004.

    EITHER WAY, I JUST WANT NEW MUSIC FROM THE QUEEN. 🙂

  8. caribbean native April 24, 2013

    wow im not surprised #NEXT

  9. IM A FREE B*TCH April 24, 2013

    honestly, i felt that Keith Urban was the best judge on the panel. he provided constructive comments, he really surprised me. Nicki is very entertaining to watch but her comments arent always constructive music wise, Mariah was a big BLEH. i expected a lot more for Mariah. Mariah was like Britney on X Factor but with a nit more character.

    • JOHNVIDAL April 24, 2013

      Britney wishes…
      Mairah showed not much interest in the show at first, but these last few weeks she has been great and she has clearly outshone and out looked Nicki (who is 10 years younger). The constant praising towards Mariah these last two weeks has been amazing 🙂

  10. Fifi April 24, 2013

    J-Ho and Icky Garbage are not (good) SINGERS, neithr of them have any business judging a singing competition. A w**** competition, maybe.

      • Gigi April 24, 2013

        Exactly !! POW !!!!

  11. Pow April 24, 2013

    Maybe Mariah Carey is just being herself rather than caving to the pressure to fit a particular mold of judge? Not everyone is comfortable giving the decidedly negative type of feedback that some of the judges are giving.

    That being said, Mariah Carey’s talent speaks for itself. Her approach to singing, writing and producing is one of the reasons that shows like this exist. Ain’t nobody going on there singing Nicki Minaj songs or Jennifer Lopez songs, after all.

    • ShadeNOShade April 24, 2013

      Mariah Doesn’t Even Give Good Advice The Only Things She Says Are “Hashtag POW” Or “YASS A + Amazing” How Are These Comments Helping The Contestants? They Need REAL ADVICE. Not This Yes Man.

      • POW April 24, 2013

        There are equally unhelpful comments coming from other judges. I’ve seen Nicki Minaj, on more than one occasion, commenting on a performer’s outfit or lipstick color. I’ve seen Randy Jackson say things like “No! No! No!” or “That was the worst performance this season” without any elaboration. Why is Mariah being singled out?

  12. Casual April 24, 2013

    Mariah is a star, but not a personality. Mariah’s mega-wattage was good to pique the public’s interest, but it wasn’t enough to carry a show that’s now past its prime.

  15. Neigh-Neigh Leakes April 24, 2013

    All these singing shows need to call it quits already tbh.
    AI hasn’t created an actual superstar in years.
    Replacing Mariah with J-ho won’t fix the problem.

    • danny b April 24, 2013

      They might this year. If you see, the only MASSIVE superstars from the show have been girls (Kelly, Carrie, Fantasia, and Jordin arguably) and this year a girl is going to win.So the problem is fixed this year with a girl winning and not a white guy with a guitar.

  16. BOW DOWN April 24, 2013

    Get Chris to perform there and you will see a spike in ratings, DWTS invites every chance they get because he broke viewership records in 2011 of 20 million in audience after people were protesting for him not to come on when he had the GMA chair throwing incident, The Today show invites him as welll afetr he broke attendance records there too!

    It would be good for promotion for him too 🙂 I dont watch X factor/American I dol but if his on I would make arrangements.

    • MuiMui April 24, 2013

      He would put on a good show for them he can perform good.

  22. eric April 24, 2013

    I think Mariah brings a certain level of class and professionalism. It might not be exciting, but it shows integrity. And Jennifer I recall stirred up more criticism than Mariah. If you’ve ever visited the Idol forums and Facebook pages, you’ll notice that the majority want Nicki gone and they feel that the show has shifted too far from a family friendly format. Mariah’s not responsible for that, but the producers will have you believe otherwise because they don’t care who they throw under the bus.

    • Fifi April 24, 2013

      Exactly !!!

    • ShadeNOShade April 24, 2013

      If You Noticed The Ppl That Didn’t Want Nicki On Idol Was BEFORE The Show Aired, Not The Only Ppl That Don’t Want Nicki On Idol Are Mariah Fans. After Watching A Few Episodes SEVERAL Ppl Changed Their Minds About Nicki. She IS A GREAT Judge Tbh. She Gives The Contestants REAL Criticism. Some Ppl May Think She’s Being Disrespectful, But If They Can’t Take Nicki’s Criticism Then How Are They Going To Survive With All The Media?

  23. Mark111 April 24, 2013

    She a bad judge and is just dumb. She not very smart and AI just proved my point. Say what you want about Nicki music, but she is a better, smarter and more witty then MC or any judge on that show. You can tell that MC is just a singer that was just told what to do Vs Nicki a boss and knows what she’s doing. 200 million albums doesn’t make you a great cook, it also doesn’t make you a good judge.

    • Fifi April 24, 2013

      If you think Icky Garbage is smart, that just proves that you’re the STUPID HO !

      • Mark111 April 24, 2013

        If Nicki is stupid, then what that tell you about Mariah?

      • Stright like that April 24, 2013

        If Nicki is so dumb how did she make all this money and get all of these endorsements in such a short period of time?

      • truth(icki released 1,726 singles and 80 videos for reFLOP and still caint go platinum! Yea b****** i said it NNN WIT!! pops tongue) April 24, 2013

        she didn’t make that money b****…she got TRAINS ran on her for her deals…now DEAL!!!

    • Common Sense April 24, 2013

      A singer who’s told what to do is they type of singer who has material handed to them and just follow directions. Rihanna and Xtincta Aguilera are two examples of singers who just do what they’re told. Mariah is not.

      I agree that Mariah isn’t a good judge but that’s because she isn’t a critical type of person and clearly doesn’t like to judge people.

  24. BOW DOWN V2.0 April 24, 2013

    Lets be civilized…bow down. Our queen ( the real ones…FYI for you fools. That is beyonce) is slaying at the moment. Her world tour isn’t a flop like Rihanna and nick is just a clown on idol. Nicki has nothing better to do than be on idol and rih is in strip clubs. Mo sign of royalty? #bowdown #mashafierce

    I don’t really give one single OUNCE of a f*** if they replace Mariah with J-Lo. I like Mariah, her music, but as a judge…I’m so disappointed in her.

  28. Tisha April 24, 2013

    I’m surprised at Mariah’s judging, at least with Britney we knew she was doped out of her mind for her mental illness but Mimi…

    She just seemed scared and uncomfortable.

    • Common Sense April 24, 2013

      She just isn’t made to be a judge. She’s too scared of coming across as mean and judgmental from what I can tell.

  29. DOSSOME April 24, 2013

    But Mariah wasn’t paid to increase ratings,Nicki was and she failed at it…Mariah had so much to offer but putting her beside an untalented/gimmick dependant human being to judge talent with just killed her morale.they should’ve gotten Lenny Kravitz as she suggested,maybe then the ship wouldn’t be sinking this deep…I agree,MIMI shouldn’t return next season,it’s a pure waste of her time

    • ShadeNOShade April 24, 2013

      Umm Nicki & Mariah BOTH Were Hired To Boost Ratings. Let’s State Facts Here.

    But Mariah wasn’t paid to increase ratings,she was hired to bring credibility to the show as a musician all those contestants were inspired to be like..however Nicki was and she failed at it…Mariah had so much to offer but putting her beside an untalented/gimmick dependant human being to judge talent with just killed her morale.they should’ve gotten Lenny Kravitz as she suggested,maybe then the ship wouldn’t be sinking this deep…I agree,MIMI shouldn’t return next season,it’s a pure waste of her time

  31. Ugh April 24, 2013

    As much as i like Mariah she’s definitely a bore on the show. Nicki needs to go too. She still does not fit in and she complains about the hours. she’s not gonna be back next season

  32. TeamBreezy April 24, 2013

    ratings low as f** cuz they made the panel 3/4 BLACK.. the white middle american viewers werent having it!

  33. ShadeNOShade April 24, 2013

    The Show Has Run It’s Course Honestly. The Boring Themes Are Not Bringing Views In. They Need To UPDATE Their Themes Not The Judges.

    Judging Wise Nicki Is The BEST Judge, She Plays With The Contestants, Says Goofy Jokes, But Then Gives Them The REAL. You May Not Like Nicki But You Can’t Deny That She Has A GREAT Way Of Judging. Like They Said “She’s The BEST Judge We’ve Had Since Simon Cowell” The Producers LOVE Her. Nigel Even Said He Wants Nicki Back Next Season.

    Now About Mariah, I Don’t Really Like Her. Her Judging Doesn’t Do Anything. She Basically Just Repeats What Randy Says. IDC. Idol Wasted 20 Million Dollars On Her.

  35. RoyalKev April 24, 2013

    I’d like Jlo to step in and join the judging panel again. I think she’s my favorite one (although I’m fond of Nicki). I feel like Jlo was one of the first that wanted to be sensitive to the needs of the contestants, but still be constructive. Paula didn’t know how to find a middle with that. Jlo wasn’t a push over that was trying to be too polite. Nicki is naturally the Simon of the show, so this dynamic will work! As for Mariah, she honestly don’t need the gig. Some people just don’t need to tap into everything.

  36. JER April 24, 2013

    Mariah is too good for American Idol or any other TV show. You had Mariah giving constructive criticisms about tone, texure, layering, vocal sweet spots, key changes, tonal qualities……and it all went over everyone’s head. She was talking to a tone deaf audience and talking to the tone deaf contestants too.

    People were hoping for CRAzAYYY Mariah from damn 1999 to show up with popsicles, free singles, and c****** cutters gurl bye no one has time for this foolishness!!!! Yal had enough crazy with Onika Maraj but you Bad Girls Club loving Real Housewives feening f*** just are never satisfied until someone is getting their weave pulled out on national television. Ch…

    And BTW Mariah was only contracted for ONE season so if she returns it’s on HER terms. Again, she’s too good for the show and always was. How are you going to have the biggest female artist in history second only to MADONNA on the same judging panel as an already washed up flop rapper from yesterday that can’t even survive get a hit sophomore album? Ch…………………………………………………………..

    If they’re gonna keep Onika on American Idol then they need to let Mimi go and get someone more in Onika’s lane: Ashanti, Amerie, hell get Blue Cantsell since she’s looking for a job these days.

    • DeezNuts April 24, 2013

      Youre delusional. LMFAO Just because you mention sweet spots and texture and all that other b******* does NOT make you a good judge.

      Mariah rambles and never gets straight to the f****** point. She sugar coats EVERYTHING (she was better last week I admit) because she doesnt want to get boo’d. She often struggles to articulate her thoughts and envokes this horrible diva demeanor that makes her BLAND AS F***.

      Nicki tells the TRUTH…gives CONCISE advice to the contestants, plays around with them, and isnt afraid to tell them they SUCKED. lmfao Thats what a judge is supposed to do. F*** a tone. At this point in the comp we already know they have a good voice. Now we need to see STAR POWER and Nicki brings that out with her goofy critiques and playful attitude. She is TV GOLD. LMFAO And NIcki can come back on her terms as well soooooo…. l

      -BYE! 🙂 TUNE IN TONIGHT S***!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Common Sense April 24, 2013

        The only delusional one here is you. Tone is EVERYTHING. You can have great skills, a great range, and still sound like s*** when singing. Just ask Georgia Brown and her 6+ octave range. She sounds like a f****** wailing hyena.

      • Pon_de April 24, 2013

        Girl does your brain work? EVERY article on the internet has comments with folks shading Nicki for filth. She is tacky, unprofessional, rude, and has ZERO credentials for a singing talent show. This isn’t Basketball Wives! Check the receipts/ratings. If she was tv gold this post wouldn’t even exist, boo!

    this is kind of false because why take mariah off when there’s only a few weeks left off of the show and to be honest since mariah has a new album coming out i don’t think she’ll come again next year the reason why people are not watching it because people can’t take nicki seriously nicki is just too damn much…mariah rambles she always did even at the beginning of her career and someone tried mariah saying she’s not business like seriously mariah had a record label in 98 signing people like groups like allure to be honest with so much talent on that show how can you not be nervous you’re messing with people’s dreams! This site is very bias on so many levels! sam failed to mention how many people slammed nicki’s outfit last week and that little s*** she said to mariah too..nicki is a clown at best!

  38. Naomi April 24, 2013

    Yeah Mariahs judging is pretty wack to be honest lets be real here

  39. JOHNVIDAL April 24, 2013

    What an absurb post seriously! Sam is so pressed at Mariah and I don´t know why cos he truly loves her (Mariah´s duet with her mother was in his top5 songs of 2010, yes a Xmas song was one of his favorites of the whole year, and I can´t blame him)
    First of all these are just stupid rumors, secondly who the hell thought Mariah was going to stay for long? And finally… the shade is so ridiculous: how the hell can you base the whole post on critiquing Mariah when in the same rumor they say they are planing to axe Nicki and Keith Urban too???????????????????????? Give me a f****** break, you hater

  40. DeezNuts April 24, 2013

    Nicki and Kieth are the best judges on the panel hands down.

    ANYYYYYYONE who thinks Mariah is a good judge needs to be slapped. Lets be REAL. Mariah is boring, longwinded, self consumed, etc. Idgaf. Thats my opinion. Nicki is the perfect blend of Entertaining, and Constructive. She steals the show. *shrugs*

    -Tune in Tonight Tho. 🙂 HAHAH

    so samantha waited for Idol producers to confirm the rumour ain’t true for him to post it….boy,this kid thrives off telling lies

  42. Kandi Kuntz April 24, 2013

    As much as i love Mariah she is not good at judging at times she seems so lost and not authentic with her critics, she’s always trying to be to nice to the contestants or she will copy what the other judges have already said. Kieth and Nicki are the most charismatic and entertaining judges this season. The show still pulls in 12 millions plus viewers every week so it’s still doing ok.

      b**** stfu praising nicki bfo i knock the s*** outt yo B**** ass!!! (stands up and balls fist up)

  43. Common Sense April 24, 2013

    Attacking Mariah’s personality just because she isn’t a critical judge is petty.
    “Unfortunately, by way of a personality that only seems to function when her accomplishments are being relayed to her by doting fans…”

    Such a hateful and petty thing to say. Stay pressed that Xtincta, Rita Whora, Nicki are still and will always be non factors compared to Mimi.

  44. HBF82 April 24, 2013

    1.” by way of a personality that only seems to function when her accomplishments are being relayed to her by doting fans?
    2.”lack the vitality Lopez brought to the table”??
    3.”charismatic Nicki Minaj”???
    Sam, do you feel better now?
    Why the finger is put only at Mariah and not the other judges?
    Weren’t they axed Jennifer for the same reason?
    Why would they, in the first place spent $18 mil to axe her?
    Who’s feeling insecure and threatened by Mariah?
    Who’s PR is giving payola?
    Who’s bothered by Mariah’s new music, album, single?
    How is Mariah’s personality working only with her fans when she has sold 200+ mil WW?
    Who’s the biggest diva on the show?
    Who showed up late?
    Who’s been cursing during auditions?
    There are millions of questions and only one obsession: Sam’s about Mariah!

    So of nicki is doing so great, why the heck are the ratings still so awful. This show is done. The issue with idol is that they expect the judges to carry the show, when it’s really about the contestants. Mariah gives great advice to the contestants for what the show is about. She’s been doing better as of lately. Let’s not act like nicki is special, her delivery is horrible, she talks about clothes,waffles and maple syrup. She’s no more than a third rated version of Simon Crowell. Sure she’s unpredictable, and has good points here and there. But she also rambled quite a bit. She has a limited understanding of music generally. she’s copied a lot of what the other judges have said as well. Most people want her off of the show. She doesn’t possess the talent of “MC”.. How can someone take u seriously when u can’t even sing. Sam u are a disgrace. U bytch and nag about talent, but post such disgraceful things about, one of the few legit great talents doing her damn thing. U are a hater. MC gives great advice as well. Nickis vocab has nothing on MC’s. That’s a huge joke. Furthermore, the judges can’t carry this show. The talent is supposed to. People are focused on the wrong things. MC is a completely different judge. Being nasty is not her thing. Nicki says what she wants but the way she does it, is very off putting. Sam be pressed to put negative crap up about MC. But u try to over exaggerate thirds authentic flops. This has become worse than a tabloid..

    • Kitty April 24, 2013

      What good advice has mariah given? you really need to stop with your s***.

      • Pon_de April 24, 2013

        Lawd you clearly know nothing about music! MC started pulling from her CREDENTIALS way back in the auditions, encouraging folks to clarify their genre interest, make song suggestions, etc. RE: Paul Jolly. Him toooooo sweet and petite to be taken as a country artist. Ain’t nobody in middle America checking for a male country twang with a lisp and limp wrist. Mariah’s suggestion that he redirect toward solid pop was spot on! She’s given numerous critiques of song choices/delivery. RE: Lazaro. Reminding him numerous times that he attempts to sing in keys that are too low for his voice. Her comments may not always come out succinctly but her grasp of musicality is clear. Nicki has one-liners and crap about waffles that might be amusing to people that watch the show for entertainment. But, MC applies her knowledge for people watching to see talent blossom. Have a seat, dear!

    The problem with the show has never been the judges. Paula Abdul was never a good judge and yet the show had some of its highest ratings while she was on the how. The problem was that at some point it started becoming a popularity contest and not based on talent.. People got tired of the the cute guy that played guitar winning every year. If you notice, the true breakout superstars have all been female, Kelly, Carrie, Fantasia and even Jordin. This year, even though ratings are low, I think people will gain a tad bit more interest bc a girl will win and once she takes off into superstardom, then it might bring people back to the show.

  47. Theman April 24, 2013

    Can u read? Mariah gives these contestants great advice about song selection,key changes,sweet spots,runs,melody and artistic musical advice. That’s what she does, that’s what this show is about. She’s not there to be the next entertainer.. She is the essence of what this show is about. People are too use to clownery in the industry.

  48. Suicide Blonde April 24, 2013

    They’re all great judges but J.Lo is charming.

  49. PRINCE MACHIAVEL April 24, 2013

    Just Please Cancell This Motherfucking Boring Show!

  50. Rossi April 24, 2013

    I love Mariah on Idol. I feel that she gives great advice. I would much prefer her over the other two that can not sing.

  51. DOSSOME April 24, 2013

    J-Lo’s advice to the current judges:-
    “at the end of the day,it’s about the contestants”

    Mariah has clearly taken the spotlight away from her and uses her experience as a musician to give critiques to contestants without being negative…If they wanted Mimi acting crazy with over the top diva antics and outrageous demands,then sorry,they must be disappointed by now.

    at the end of the day,the contestants really appreciate her advice,which ignorant viewers call “BORING” because she refuses to turn AMERICAN IDOL into BRAXTON FAMILY VALUES Pt.2

  52. NaomisBaldEdges April 24, 2013

    Mariah’s problem is that she doesnt want to hurt any of these contestants feelings. Many of these contestants idolize her. Imagine how it would feel if your idol criticized you? I think instead of being negative,Mariah looks for the positive in each performance and advices on what they can do BETTER next time. She is not the best judge but she is the BEST teacher on the show. Mariah is not the blame for Idol, its a boring show period, no matter who you bring on there, the show will still be boring. We watch for the talent not the judges. So lets not blame the judges when you have sub-par talent.

  53. J hooker April 25, 2013

    I should’ve known this is a nicki puff piece. Please. Nicki and Keith are the two least faves in my opinion. WHO SAYS ON A SINGING SHOW, “IM NOT EVEN GONNA SAY NOTHIN ABOUT THE VOCALS ANYMORE CAUSE ITS BEEN SAID.” B**** QUIT BLINKING LIKE U ARE TA-RETTY BETTY, and u better not look at Mariah, cause she will beat u down in every way. Mariah is one of the ONLY peeps who is speaking from a place of relevancy,so sorry to all you ghetto b****** who need to see b****** clawing each others eyes out. Turn on BAD GIRLS CLUB HEFFERS!

  54. Toff April 25, 2013

    Hasn’t anybody here paid attention when Mariah spoke of the “key, the range, the register, the tones, the notes, the genre, the pitch, even ‘the place'” and all other stuff only she can give a credible remark on? I love Nicki’s wits and spontaneity but that’s entertaining because they can make good TV. I myself hate it whenever Mariah rambles but nobody can simply discredit her insightful musical critiques that probably bore most of us who love good TV but hate Music Lecturing on national TV. In this vein, I must conclude Mariah, and she knows it, is better deemed a MENTOR than a judge. Remember that episode when Mariah mentored the AI Season 7’s contestants? She proved to be one of the show’s best mentors. She’s brought out the best in them, which “judging” can’t really effect in essence.

    So PLEASE, don’t ever compare Mariah to Britney in how they fared on their respective shows.

  55. Toff April 25, 2013

    Just realized that no rumor about Mariah’s DIVA demands has ever surfaced since AI 12’s debut. Save for her one tardy attendance in one audition ep, Mariah is showing the world she’s a professional and not trying to be the “queen” some other “diva” has been pointing out Mariah’s been acting like.
