Mariah Carey Joins American Idol, Fantasia Working On New Album

It has been announced that Mariah Carey is the newest judge on American Idol. The news broke as soon as J-LO announced she was leaving. Now the news has been confirmed. Now we will await to see who will be joining Mariah as a judge.

Randy Jackson is still a judge at presstime. Ironically Randy is Mariah's manager so I'm sure that had a lot to do with the decision.

With a new album and single in the works Mariah Carey on Idol will be just what she needs to insure the success of her new album and future endeavors. Word is Mariah will be receiving 17 million dollars; 2 million dollars more than Britney Spears is receiving on X Factor.

Speaking of American Idol former winner Fantasia working on  a new album said to be recorded in less than a month's time. With major support from her label Fantasia is embarking on creating her own sound courtesy of producer Harmony(worked with Ne-Yo) who reportedly produced 90% of the album.

The album's first single is said to be a song titled Lighthouse. Unconfirmed guests include Stevie Wonder, Nicki Minaj, and everyone's go to album feature Andre 3000.

You all excited for a new Fantasia album? Her last album Back To Me just missed the gold mark but maybe now it may have sold over 500,000 copies. It's my least favorite of her three albums though so hopefully she will win me over with her new body of work.
