Mariah Carey pictures a bright future on Idol judges' panel

6/13/2014

American Idol judge Mariah Carey has soon got comfortable with her new role, and can already picture herself staying on with the singing competition for future seasons. The pop diva is only a couple of weeks into her tenure as a panelist for the hit reality show, but her brief experience with the program so far has proven to be so enjoyable for her that she's keen to sign on for another season. In an interview on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, she admits her excitement for the new venture, and how inspiring it is to help wannabes fulfill their dreams. She confesses, "Yeah, I actually can (see myself doing another season). I love moments like this, because I think they’re great. You work through whatever. I’m just learning. I don’t consider myself a judge, I consider myself as someone who is trying to give constructive criticism and guidance... "I think it’s a really, really great opportunity for people out there who don’t necessarily have the money to make their own demo or to go to a record company and stuff like that. I have a totally new respect for the whole thing." Carey, along with Seacrest, and judges Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj, and Randy Jackson, are currently hitting select cities across the country for call back auditions, and the 12th season of Idol will premiere in early 2013.
