Mariah vs. Idol: Carey Books “GMA” to Launch New Single, Not “American Idol”

Do I know what’s going on at “American Idol”? I know what you know. But I also know what was said
today. Mariah Carey, “American Idol” judge, is launching her new single not on the “Idol” finale but on “Good Morning America.” She’s booked for May 24th, eight days after the “Idol” finale. Carey is not scheduled to sing on “Idol” and she hasn’t all season.
Both Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez used “Idol” to launch singles a year ago. And Keith Urban has performed this season. But Carey has remained behind the judges’ desk, even though she has a single– “Almost Home”– from “Oz the Great and Powerful,” a major box office hit. Suffice to say, something is rotten in Hollywood. “Oz” was a huge hit. Singing the single on “Idol” would have been the proper synergy. Instead, “Home” disappeared and no mention of it was made on “Idol.”
Carey’s new single is going to be hot, too–it’s a duet with new star Miguel. But there’s a lot going on in the background. “GMA” is #1, and “Idol” ratings are the lowest they’ve ever been. It’s unclear whether “Idol” producer Nigel Lythgoe even wants Carey to perform. Or whether Carey, unhappy with the way the show has gone for her, would ever deign to get up on their stage.
Now “American Idol” still has four weeks to go, that’s eight shows. And on May 8th it goes up against “The Voice” on NBC– the ratings report the next morning is going to be wild. So stay tuned. And never bet against Mariah. She will be around long after “American Idol” has named its final winner.

Director Joseph Kahn, who is filming the music video for Carey's new track, revealed that he finished
shooting the visual but wouldn't confirm whether the song features the R&B singer.
He tweeted: "Wrapped new video. Yup, she's the bomb. Love her.

"I can't confirm the artist until they do. But what a lovely treat for a video director."

LA band Chotto Ghetto member Fletcher Alliston also seemingly tweeted from the set, revealing: "Working on a Mariah Carey + Miguel video for the man Joseph Kahn, wouldn't trade this for 1,000 Coachellas." He has since removed the comments.

Miguel later suggested his involvement in the song and video, posting: "Lets do that again sometime. MOMENTS. So appreciative."

Carey is expected to release her as-yet-untitled 14th album this summer. She recently insisted that she wants to release the record "ASAP", adding: "I've been working with a bunch of people in secret locations."

Booted girl talks special bond with Mariah Carey

 We knew Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey on the same page was too good to last. The dueling American
Idol judges seemed to call a truce after last night's performance show but they couldn't agree tonight to use the coveted judges' save on Janelle Arthur. Backstage after the show, Janelle left little doubt as to which female chart-topper was the holdout.
 "Throughout the live shows, I've felt the most connected to Mariah," she told us. "On results shows, she's always like lookin' at me. When I'm over on the couch, she's always just like glancing over and she'll give me some sort of wink or like a 'you look pretty', and it makes me feel so good."
 And what did the supportive Mimi have to say to her after her elimination? "She was saying she was excited for my future and what's coming up for me," revealed the country singer. "She said, 'I'll see you on the road, girl.' It was sweet."
 It's been an emotional season for the 23-year-old Oliver Springs, TN, native and longtime diehard Idol fan. There was the exhilaration of making the Top 10 and the total annoyance of watching Nicki walk out of the studio wearing her favorite pair of custom-made cowgirl boots (a pair, she told us with a smile, we just may see her rockin' again on finale night - and this time, you can bet she won't let Nicki get anywhere near them!).
 Right after the elimination, we heard Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe promise Janell he'd get her someone awesome to perform with on the May finale. Her top picks? Personal idols Dolly Parton, Vince Gill or Shania Twain. "But if I had to sing with Vince, I would just be crying," she said with a laugh, "so maybe I'd wanna work with the females!"
 While Janelle was clearly bummed to be sent packing ("I thought they were gonna use the save, just not on me"), she's determined to still realize her dream of making a traditional country record, y'all! "I honestly feel like it's only up from here if I don't just give up," she said, "and I don't know why I would now."
