Mariah Carey Relates to ‘American Idol’ Contestants in New Promo

Subscribe to PopCrush on

Nicki Minaj probably hates this ‘American Idol‘ promo, since Mariah Carey is the focus. Carey is the OG diva, so…

…Mimi is the only judge to talk about her experience as an artist and on the show, saying, “I didn’t have a show like ‘Idol.’ I always sang and always wrote, and you can’t let go of your dreams.”

Carey, one of the best-selling female artists of all time, speaks from a place of experience. She waited the tables. She scratched and clawed her way to the top. So she “gets” the position the hopefuls are in. We even see a contestant making her cry and reaching her core, saying she felt every word they sang.

Season 12 of ‘Idol’ begins in January, hopefully with no more (figurative) hair pulling between Mimi and Minaj. PopCrushers, who plans to tune in?
