Yesterday, the net was swirling with rumors that Mariah Carey may be getting the boot from “American Idol” due to low ratings, and that Jennifer Lopez, who was a judge on the show last season, would be coming back.
Carey’s husband, Nick Cannon, has spoken out on these reports. He told Access Hollywood,
Whatever happens with that show, I think she’s had a great time.”
Mariah’s rep has denied the reports that she was on the outs, and Cannon says that regardless of any outcome, his wife is a force to be reckoned with anyway you look at it.
But she’s a global superstar. I don’t think she’s ever in need of a job. She made a decision to do that show because she really wanted to connect with the contestants. I don’t think she’s thinking about the future of it.”
This season’s ratings are the lowest Idol has ever seen since the show debuted in 2002 so there most likely will be backlash of some sort. We will have to wait and see what happens!
