American Idol may be getting a little bit country.
The Grammy-winning country singer, who has performed on Idol before, would fill the seat vacated Steven Tyler, who departed the series last week with Jennifer Lopez after Season 11. Fox declined to comment on the report.
With the addition of Carey, and possibly Paisley, the judges' table would seemingly be complete — Randy Jackson is expected to return — though Deadline reports that the Fox series might expand the panel to four judges again. Idol had a four-judge panel for two seasons before reducing it back to three in Season 10 when Tyler and Lopez joined.
