New American Idol judge names have been thrown out all week and now, in the wake of Steven Tyler's exit news, here's another one: Mariah Carey.
Us Weekly reports that Mariah Carey is "in serious talks" for a judge's seat. Along with Fergie and Adam Lambert (who said earlier this week he hasn't had a conversation with anyone about it).
But Jerry Lewis, who was mentioned on Nigel Lythgoe's wish list with Charlie Sheen, is definitely in the mix. Lewis spokeswoman Candi Cazau reports that a package describing the requirements for judging the show has been sent to Lewis' office in Las Vegas, reports the Las Vegas Sun.
Meanwhile, Ryan Seacrest was busy in Chicago yesterday, presiding over first-round auditions.
