Mariah Carey: 'American Idol' Promo Pic!

Check out Mariah Carey‘s official promo pic as the new judge of American Idol!

“As a singer, songwriter and producer, it’s going to be fun and rewarding to help find new talent and give back with American Idol,” said the 42-year-old singer. “I’m currently in the studio working on my new album and its first single, ‘Triumphant,’ which will be out early next month. I can’t wait to channel my creative energy as a part of this show which is a massive global phenomenon.”

Mariah has more than 200 million records sold worldwide and more No. 1 songs than any solo artist in history. She’ll join the judges’ panel when Idol returns in January 2013 on Fox!

    What a natural looking picture… breath Mariah breath.

  • the truth

    Hahha, Tara. My thoughts exactly.

  • Fer

    It makes no sense! I mean, why this scenery and look to promote American Idol? Its a talent show, not a jewelry ad.

  • J.Taylor

    strange pic o_O

  • LMAO


  • “You didn’t build that”

    Certainly not aging in JLo years.

  • briana


    funny how all the singing competition shows want their judges to look like The Voice’s coaches. hahaha. A MESS!

    The Voice stays unbothered with their 4 Emmy noms.

  • Nancy

    Is this woman really serious? Photoshop much? Please dress your age!! You look like an overpriced hooker.

  • Who cares what you think?

    Holy photoshop look what we have here. I personally don’t lime it. Mariah, embrace your body. Nothing to be ashamed of at all!

  • Lyla

    She and her ugly husband need to disappear.

    American Idol needs a new photographer and whoever said “Yes, that’s it, that’s the best pic!” ..needs to be fired.

  • rochelle

    Yeah, that waist has definitely not been airbrushed LOL!!!!!!!!!!

  • woooork it

    You know what i love about this woman? that she is a fu*ckin diva. She’s not like these new age actors/musicians with their fake ‘im just humble’ cra*p (it’s all lies, they’re not even slightly humble).. she is what she is and not afraid of it.. i appreciate that more than the lies i read when actors try to prove they’re just like everyone else and not taking private jets to pick up a drink.

  • Get ready

    I can tell she just as J-Lo is planning on using this judging opportunity to sing every freakin’ song on her new album live on AI!! The judges should not be allowed to perform!! It’s suppose to be about the people there who are trying to be a star, not the relaunching of an already existing established, multi-millionaire celebrities career!!

  • seeaaaa

    Jesus…help me! Like for real…omg! I wonder if she puts on an act, because no one could ever be that ridiculous

  • Fefe

    is this a promotional pic for Idol or that Drag-Race show ?? that right arm is looking veeryy stiff

  • Pasha


    I think that the Voice may be bothered somewhat by their massive drop in ratings. Despite the lead that they received from the Super Bowl and American Idol’s ratings dropping by a large margin, the Voice still couldn’t lure in as many viewers as American Idol did.

  • Nik Kanon

    This woman stuck in the ’90 so hard. She needs to go to rehab.

  • Lailah

    I love you Mariah and I KNOW you’re a diva but would it kill you to get a stylist?

  • Mika

    Is it made of plastic????

  • sea


  • GA

    If the Voice has four Emmy Noms., I assure it’s not show’s quality but the fact that they push the GAY agenda.

  • Lee

    She’s not bad looking – but that is a very unflattering shot – just looks plain weird.

  • MisterX

    she look like a plastic baby doll

  • Sean

    Looks like Miss Piggy. She used to be so pretty in the 90′s

  • [~Fug Face Man!ston~]

    …what does this have to do with american idol?! …are they trying to show how much makeup she’s wearing in a failed attempt at looking young? LOL …`she looks like she’s in pain, or has to take a massive shiit.

  • kikasf

    what a painful and ridulous poseee?she is not okey?used to be fan when younger but now…she needs to dissapear

  • Courtney

    uh it’s called a photoshopped promo pic that’s all. those critizing Mariah for her weighyt have no right the last few years haven
    ‘t been easy for her she’s still a beautiful woman.

  • Ava

    I like mariah and I’m so sorry to say this but she reminds me of a white wendy williams, in this pose. Be natural. Stand straight and smile because you’re already beautiful :)

  • cindy

    AS she’s aging more and more Mariah looks more like how you doing Wendy Williams!! That’s not good!!! I Miss J-lo already!!!!

  • Anna

    Touch my body…

  • KAY blood

    Can’t stomach this puke of an exhibitionist. Good god what is American Idol thinking? All she is going to do is try to be grossly sexual and sultry – trash. Yep, she might be talented but she is a vulgar exhibitionist.

  • Mia

    It looks like a wax figure.

  • ohplease

    @briana: you mean the Christina Aguilera tantrum show?

  • JHON

    sorry mariah but im going to watch factor x cuz BRITNEY WILL BE THERE

  • m

    She makes it so easy to dislike her.

  • marcd43

    That is one seriously weirdass pose!

  • Reese

    What’s going on with her hands? I don’t like The way she has positioned them.

  • Thinker

    she is so fake

  • haha

    well,shes defo more beautiful than old hag man jaw witch face Jolie. yeahhh:) thumb me down b*tches

  • SophiaB

    She looks gross. I used to like her songs (like Hero etc.) but she got really crazy with the ages. I was really shoked when I saw her in ‘All I want for Christmas’ with JB. She looked like 52 yr old hooker.

  • $NAPP$

    That’s a wonderful picture of Mariah Carey and she’s bounced back nice since having her kids. I can’t wait to see her in action on season 12 of American Idol, and I know she will be a great asset to the show. The only thing that’s going to be better on primetime will be watching all the shows without commercials. Now that I have the Auto Hop feature I can watch all my shows commercial free on my primetime. This made me excited after a couple of my coworkers at Dish showed me how this first worked. The Auto Hop doesn’t erase any of the commercials or any of the content. It’s like when you use the fast forward button on the remote. The commercials will always be there if you want to watch them, Auto hop just does the fast forwarding for you. Now I can save the wear and tear on my remote by not having to fast forward every ten minutes.

  • Give Back??

    “As a singer, songwriter and producer, it’s going to be fun and rewarding to help find new talent and give back with American Idol.”

    I feel her choice of words implies she is doing this for free out of the goodness of her heart. She’s getting paid 18 million……

  • Me

    Great! Another mentally unstabled judge. She’s worse than Paula Abdul. Mariah is going to annoy every one at AI with her crazy demands. This is all going to be about her!

  • dcstarinthemaking

    no!!! she’s so much better than that pathetic show!



  • Tia

    More like a promo for MILF porn movie.

  • RIP Grandma

    did someone stick their fingers onto her ass?

  • loelr

    She’s ridiculous.
