Mariah Carey Wants To Be 'Centrepiece' Of American Idol Panel?

26 July 2012

Whilst Mariah Carey might have normal rider demands, it appears that demands are far from normal when it comes to the American Idol judging panel following the reports that she wants to be the "centrepiece" of the panel.

Having taken over from Jennifer Lopez and with Randy Jackson looking likely to return, the seat previously occupied by Steven Tyler remains vacant and according to HollywoodLife, Mariah is hoping the seat will be filled by someone who is not as famous as herself.

A source said: "It will be 110% someone less famous than Mariah Carey. Mariah Carey wants to be the centerpiece of the new panel and the new look of the show and doesn’t want to be overshadowed whatsoever.

“Many are scared on set that she is going to be a major diva and are scared that it will be a nightmare to work with her expected demands.”

Hmm, we don't think Mariah would go that far!

A rep for Mariah has been approached for comment.
