Mariah Carey: 'Glee Project' Contestant Makes It on 'Idol'

Mariah Carey flashes a bit of tummy while heading out on the town on Wednesday (January 30) in New York City.

On that evening’s episode of American Idol, the 42-year-old singer and her fellow judges were greeted by hopeful Matheus Fernandes, who was definitely a familiar face to some.

Matheus was previously a contestant on the first season of The Glee Project! During his Idol audition, he sang the Sam Cooke song “A Change Is Gonna Come” and wowed all four of the judges.

    It was amazing! It shows that no matter your limitations or how different you are, if you put your heart and soul into something you will be able to succeed. Oh, and I wish Mariah and Nicki would end up their feud!

    Keith Urban, he is a talented, kind guy. Love American Idol this year because of Keith, you can tell the people trying out really like him and his opinion.

    ok.. first of all: nobody – even if you have the body for it – should wear this outfit!! I mean a belly top?! really??!! …
    and second of all – mariah hasn’t got the body to wear this & 2. she’s way too old for that “style”….

    Glad he got into Idol, have a beautiful voice, and the fact that he lost in Glee project just show how that show is only for untalented people (Cory, Chord, Heather, etc) . At the end the kid who won was the worse of the bunch, way of go Glee.

    Matheus was great!! Such a sweet soul too. :)

    I am amused by Mariah’s “walkers” – the guys who help her walk because of her heels and/or constricting outfits.

    Matheus is a LIAR. He said, “This is my first time playing with a live band,” during Hollywood week. NOT TRUE. He sang with a live band a couple of times when he was on Glee Project. Full of BS. He just feels sorry for himself.
