Mariah Carey - Mariah Carey Wants Lenny Kravitz On American Idol

Mariah Carey is lobbying American Idol producers to hire her rocker pal Lenny Kravitz to join her on the judging panel of the reality show instead of rapper Nicki Minaj.
New reports on Monday (20Aug12) suggested rapper Minaj was close to signing a deal with TV bosses to help pick out aspiring singers on the upcoming 12th season of the programme.
But it appears Carey isn't too keen on the double female combination and she has proposed her own suggestions for the spare seat at the judge's table.
After hearing the Minaj gossip, the Heartbreaker hitmaker took to her blog and uploaded a photo of herself with Kravitz, writing, "@AmericanIdol What's going on? need the info!! What about this combo? if we could ever get him to do it!"
The American Woman rocker seemed more than interested and tweeted back, "@MariahCarey @AmericanIdol Girl, we've known each other since we were teenagers. How fun would that be?!"
The two friends are currently filming director Lee Daniels' new movie The Butler together, while they also co-starred in the filmmaker's 2009 hit Precious.
Carey inked a deal reported to be worth $17 million (£11 million) to join American Idol in July (12), following the departure of Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler.
