Looks like American Idol came up with enough money to get Mariah Carey to sign on the dotted line and it’s way less than the 100 million her husband Nick Cannon thinks she’s worth…

From Deadline 

EXCLUSIVE: I have learned that Mariah Carey is finalizing a deal to join Fox’s American Idol as a new judge. I hear Carey would command a salary of more than $17 million for next season, which would set a new record for talent on a reality series, eclipsing the paycheck of Idol‘s Jennifer Lopez.
