It's official, daaaahling.
Mariah Carey will not return to American Idol, Fox and FremantleMedia have confirmed.
"Mariah Carey is a true global icon—one of the most accomplished artists on the planet—and we feel extremely fortunate that she was able to bring her wisdom and experience to the American Idol contestants this season," Fox and FremantleMedia have said in a joint statement. "We know she will remain an inspiration to Idol hopefuls for many seasons to come."
As we reported a couple weeks ago, none of the four judges are expected to return to Idol for the upcoming fall season. Randy Jackson also has confirmed his exit.
Will you miss Mariah?
