This week’s New Music Tuesday features work from a pair of Season 7 Idol alums. David Archuleta releases his album of covers, BEGIN and the title song “Only a Mountain” from Jason Castro’s upcoming album drops today. Newly-minted Idol judge, Mariah Carey, releases her latest single “Triumphant” with help from Rick Ross & Meek Mills. And lastly, Bucky Covington’s second studio album, Good Guys will come out on September 11, but can be pre-ordered today.
Check out a stream of newly-minted American Idol judge, Mariah Carey’s upcoming single, “Triumphant (Get ‘Em)” featuring Rick Ross & Meek Mill. Ah. Mariah. Does it bug you that it no longer matters that your voice is an incredible instrument? She’s relegated to an overdubbed chorus on her own song. Sadz.
TMZ is reporting that Mariah Carey is the highest paid judge in reality show history.
It’s only been an hour or so since FOX announced officially that Mariah Carey would be joining the American Idol judges panel, and TMZ had already begun to slag her.
An Entertainment Weekly source claims Mariah Carey is deep in negotiations with FOX to take a seat on the American Idol judges panel (but for a lesser paycheck than The Wrap is reporting).
EW also reports that Randy Jackson is likely to stay and that FOX is considering Adam Lambert as a low budget option.
US Weekly is throwing Mariah Carey into the mix as a possible American Idol judge.
A source tells the Hollywood Reporter that L.A. Reid signed his contract for season 2 of X Factor yesterday (Feb 3). Earlier in the week, news broke that Steve Jones, Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger would not be returning.
