Reportedly, Mariah will earn a whopping $18 million judging one season of the show. That paycheck is more than any other judge on any other singing competition show.
New X-Factor judge Britney Spears will bring in $16 million, while Christina Aguilera makes a measly $10 million on The Voice.
Mariah’s Idol predecessor Jennifer Lopez brought in $12 million per year on the show. J. Lo thinks the addition of Mariah to the table is a good one.
“She has a lot of experience,” says Jennifer. “And it’s that experience you offer them at the end of the day, the contestants just want to get better and grow through the process.”
Idol auditions are currently underway, but Mariah won’t make her first appearance until January.
