Mariah Carey's American Idol Backstage Demands Revealed!

Mariah Carey has shocked runners on American Idol as her backstage requests are "normal."

The 42-year-old is known to have some of the most ridiculous - and often bizarre - rider requests, which in the past have included 20 white kittens, butterfly-shaped confetti and baskets of puppies. However, the singer, who was announced as Jennifer Lopez's replacement on the show last week, seems to have matured and is no longer the diva she once was.

"It's all standard stuff, nothing out of the ordinary. It's not like they'll need to put a new roof on the building. It's standard lists, whether it's for water, soda, veggies, snacks. It's all fairly normal," a source told the New York Post.

Mariah was left red-faced in 2010 when details of Mariah's tour rider were leaked and revealed that she requested no busy patterns and that the room temperature be 75 degrees Fahrenheit.

Sounds like Mariah is growing up!
