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.

# 2

Hahha, Tara. My thoughts exactly.

# 3

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

Certainly not aging in JLo years.

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.

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

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

She and her ugly husband need to disappear.

Trying to hard as usual .

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

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

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.

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!!

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

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


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.

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

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

Is it made of plastic????

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

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

she look like a plastic baby doll

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

…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.

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

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.

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 :)

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!!!!

Touch my body…

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.

It looks like a wax figure.

@briana: you mean the Christina Aguilera tantrum show?

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

She makes it so easy to dislike her.

That is one seriously weirdass pose!

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

she is so fake

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

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.

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?? @ 07/26/2012 at 12:07 pm

“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……

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 @ 07/26/2012 at 1:29 pm

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

LILY GAGA @ 07/26/2012 at 1:31 pm


More like a promo for MILF porn movie.

RIP Grandma @ 07/26/2012 at 1:52 pm

did someone stick their fingers onto her ass?

She’s ridiculous.

Why does her left hand look like she’s missing her index finger but she’s not?

Close your ears darling!
You know, you’re the best and most beautiful!
I Love you Mariah!
American Idol is a ***** program, you’re much worth it!
