“American Idol” is desperately trying to find a few more celebs who will sit at the judge’s table with Mariah Carey on the upcoming 13th season of the show. There have been rumors that Aretha Franklin is interested and that the show was interested in Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry; however the only musical legend with a signed contract is Mariah Carey.
Idol has reportedly offered Enrqiue $4M to take the table with Mariah. Hopefully Mariah is happy with this selection because she’s been quite opinionated about some of the rumored past selections, which may be the cause for the fact that she’s the only signed judge so far.
Enrique is the son of Julio Iglesias, who was a famous Spanish singer, so Enrique has a lifetime of lessons and experiences in the music industry and would likely make a great addition to the table that is right now only a table for one. But again, we’ve all heard the rumors that Mimi is one opinionated diva and if she doesn’t want Enrique beside her, it probably won’t happen, particularly since she’s getting paid the big bucks – $18M.
