Mariah Carey wants American Idol job

Los Angeles: Mariah Carey is keen to work as a judge on `American Idol`, her husband Nick Cannon has said.

Cannon, who presents the talent show `America`s Got Talent`, admits the `Hero` singer regularly talks about working on the hit show, The Hollywood Reporter said.

"You know what? She talks about it. She says, `I would love to do that`. She is one of the greatest singers of our time and she would be great. I don`t know if she has enough time, though, but if they could work with her schedule, I know she would love to do `Idol`," Cannon said.

The 29-year-old presenter also admits the show has experienced a turmoil following the departure of both Simon Cowell and Ellen DeGeneres, but believes it will continue to be a success.

"Simon Cowell was the anchor of the show. And when he stepped out, it`s like, now what? But as long as Ryan Seacrest and Randy Jackson stick around, I`m watching," said Cannon.
