Source: Mariah Carey in the Mix for 'Idol'

NEW YORK (AP) -- "American Idol" may be getting a worldwide idol as a judge -- Mariah Carey.

A person familiar with the show's negotiations says Carey is being pursued to join the judging panel of the Fox talent competition.

The source requested anonymity because of the private nature of negotiations.

There are two openings: Both Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler announced last week that they were leaving as judges after two seasons.

Randy Jackson, who is a good friend and producer of Carey's, is the only judge left.

If Carey were to join, she'd bring considerable expertise on hitmaking: The Grammy-winner is one of the best-selling artists of all time, with numerous No. 1 hits. She's currently working on a new album, the first since her twins were born last year.
