Mariah Carey has officially joined “American Idol.”
Following weeks of speculation, Fox’s entertainment president Kevin Reilly made the announcement at the Fox executive session at the Television Critic’s Association Summer Press Tour.
“I’m so excited to be joining ‘Idol,’ I wanted to be there today and I wish I could’ve been there myself to tell you,” Carey told the audience via phone. “It happened really quickly, I can’t wait to get started in a couple months, everybody have a great TCA and I will see you in January.”
