  • John

    Highest paid judge for the best and only singer Idol ever had.

  • just sayin

    Jlo always starts a trend lmao! People will laugh at her and say the meanest things like when she first got on idol. Now every big singer wants to be on a show, like Christina on the Voice and all the other singers, John Legend on his new singing show. Jlo made it okay for big name celebrties to go on these shows. Everything Jlo does you can be sure other celebrities will follow lol!!!! You can actually say that all these celebrities have started perfume lines, clothing lines, because they saw how successful Jlo was. She is totally awesome and other celebrities want her awesomeness. Btw so many celebrities are beginning to look like Jlo.

  • Glitter Meltdown

    They are still paying her less than JLo and remember the last time she followed in JLo’s footsteps.

  • Delphic

    It’s kind of sad that someone who’s just going to be blurting out generic and predictable comments like “You were great, but you just need to work on your vocals a little bit” is going to be paid such an insane amount of money. Could be spent on more useful things.

  • Dorothy

    Mariah is earning 18 mill JLO only got 15. The only ones who follow in JLO’S footsteps are divorce lawyers and gay gigolo back up dancers.



  • cray

    That amount is exaggerated by her PR Team to calm her fragile ego.
    The last time she had a meltdown she was accusing JLo and her ex hubby Mottola of stealing her career.

  • JoJO

    JLO earned her career by sleeping with every P*nis in Hoywood who would help her. JLO could never sing and that’s a fact.

  • ozzie

    if you don’t compose and play your own music you are just a karaoke singer … American Idol takes talented people and makes them sing karaoke … i dont get what people love about this show.

    I’m sorry to see Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler leave, but I think Mariah Carey can do a wonderful job. I can’t wait to see American Idol when the new season begins. It’s one of the best shows I watch on primetime. There are other shows that I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy now that I’ve upgraded to the Hopper. It records all my PrimeTime Anytime shows for playback on my time. Now I can use the new Auto Hop feature to enjoy all those awesome shows commercial free. This option doesn’t delete or block commercials it offers you the option to skip commercials on primetime programs. One of my coworkers at Dish showed me how Auto Hop works which has me excited. I sometimes fast forward too fast through the commercials only to rewind back to the start of the next scene, so this will prevent this problem and keep the batteries from dying so fast in my remote.
