Hold up Mariah, Harry Connick Jr. disagrees
You were wrong, Mariah Carey.
That is essentially the message new "American Idol" judge Harry Connick Jr. had for Carey, who has not had great things to say about her former employer. While appearing recently on New York Radio station Hot 97 Carey said of her time judging last season "Honestly, I hated it" and refered to the gig as hell.

Is Jennifer Lopez headed back to 'Idol?'
Things may not be so lonely for Keith Urban at the "American Idol" judges table.
Since judges Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey will not be returning, the only sure face we know that will be back next season is country star Urban who Fox president Kevin Reilly confirmed during the 2013 Summer TCA Press Tour would be returning. But if you believe Jennifer Lopez's boyfriend, Casper Smart, the singer/actress is also headed back.
When asked by E! if Lopez was headed to the show, Smart reportedly responded "yes," perhaps believing that a formal announcement had been made. It has not and so far Fox is being mum, other than Reilly having confirmed at the TCA Press tour that discussions were being held with La Lopez.
Lopez was a judge during the 2011-2012 season and the buzz continues to mount that an announcement will be made soon. Do you think it's a good idea to have her back or no?

Where Jennifer Lopez goes to relax
Between being a mom, a girlfriend and a performer, she’s in the midst of a world tour with Engrique Iglesias, it seems Jennifer Lopez really can do it all.
But the former “American Idol” judge told InStyle that even she needs a place to unwind every so often: “It’s called the bath. I don’t ask for much. I really am a simple girl from the Bronx. Just a nice bathroom with a tub and hot water.”

Jennifer Lopez doesn't know if she'll marry again
It's been rumored that Jennifer Lopez has been getting cozy with 20-something dancer Casper Smart, but the "Idol" judge told Matt Lauer on "Today" that she's still recovering from her recent split.
Lopez, who separated from husband Marc Anthony last July, told Lauer that the change in her personal life is "still fresh," adding that she doesn't know if she'll ever marry again. "It's not the time to think about [marriage] yet."
What is on her mind is her new show with her estranged spouse, "Q'Viva! The Chosen," which she continued to work on with Anthony following their separation.
