X17 EXCLUSIVE - Details On Mariah Carey's Diva Attitude At American Idol Finale

May 17, 2013 09:15 AM

Last night Mariah Carey sang at the American Idol finale, and though she looked spectacular in an ornate white gown, everyone is buzzing about the fact that her performance was taped ... and that she may have been lip syncing!

Mariah took the stage for a seven-minute medley of some of her biggest hits, including "Vision of Love," "Make it Happen," "Hero" and her new tune "#Beautiful," and fans at the finale were quite disappointed that she didn't sing live. An X17 reporter at the show tells X17online exclusively:

    "Producers asked the audience to get excited for Mariah's performance, and then the screens dropped from the ceiling and they played a video of her singing - no one could believe it.  When the video was over, the crowd was supposed to cheer but instead everyone just sat there staring at each other.  And the judges' mood was beyond mild - they all seemed bored.  Mariah and Nicki [Minaj] didn't look at each other, and even Randy [Jackson] was unemotional about it being his last show."

And not only that, but Mariah acted like she was over it as soon as she walked in the building! Our source at the show added, "Hair and makeup primped her between every commercial break and not a strand of hair had even moved. She was texting the whole night and looked like she would rather be anywhere but there."

Despite fans tweeting that she wasn't actually singing, Mariah's rep told Entertainment Tonight, “No, she did not lip-sync! She sang 3x and even sang additional songs for fans in between [commercials.]”

Mariah just announced that she's embarking on a world tour, and based on how unenthused she was at the show last night, we're guessing it's only a matter of time before she announces that she's leaving. Randy's out, rumor has it Nicki is dunzo and even Fox exec Kevin Reilly couldn't confirm that anyone was coming back, as he told E! News earlier this week that "everything at this point is on the table, and we'll talk about that starting Friday."

Report: American Idol Plan To Replace Mariah Carey With Jennifer Lopez Failed

Apr 24, 2013 09:04 AM

mariah-carey-j-lo.jpg Trading one diva for another?! Let the claws come out!

Reports surfaced today that Fox executives were looking to replace Mariah Carey with Jennifer Lopez on American Idol, but now the network is scrambling to do damage control!

The show is in some serious trouble, with last week's ratings the worst since its debut in 2002, and the head haunchos believed J.Lo's star power could give a much needed boost to the singing competition. However, it appears everyone got their stories a little confused! Turns out, the Latina stunner will simply be performing on the May 16 finale.

"This is just another ridiculous Idol judge rumor, likely started by talks of Jennifer performing on the finale," a Fox spokeswoman said in a statement. A rep for Carey denies the allegations as well.

And there you have it folks!
