The deal is for one year and was made today at the TV Critics Association Summer Press tour in Beverly Hills.
Depending on if Randy Jackson stays, they still have at least one judge's chair to fill.
The rumor that Adam Lambert will fill that seat is still in effect.
Mariah just released this statement via twitter and facebook: "It's gonna be so much fun working on American Idol. As a singer-songwriter, I'm excited to help find and nurture new talent. LYM!" --MC

In what is sure to shock the PTC and others, Howard Stern made it official by announcing he is the new judge of "America's Got Talent" this morning.
Howard Stern replaces Piers Morgan and the show wanted Howard so bad, they are moving the entire show and other judges to New York so Howard does not interrupt his radio show, which is based in New York.
I am sure the NBC executives are extremely pleased. NBC is struggling for a hit and the attention and controversy that will follow Howard and wondering what he will say next will entice people.
He is not as raunchy as he used to be and is a perfect choice for a judge. Still, it is going to ruffle some feathers.
What do you think of the choice?-DocFB
