Ryan Seacrest on J.Lo 'Idol' Rumors: 'Mariah Carey Is Firmly Planted'
Wild rumors circulated this week about foiled plans to replace Mariah Carey with former judge Jennifer Lopez on “American Idol.” “Extra’s” Terri Seymour caught up with Ryan Seacrest and Randy Jackson to get their take on the gossip.
Ryan said, “I had not heard about that before that report. I saw Mariah that day and she was firmly planted in that seat, and I see her tonight and I think she was firmly planted in that seat, I don’t think she is going anywhere.”
Randy commented, “It’s so weird, it sounds so ridiculous… you hear rumors about these shows all the time. This one was so ridiculous of an idea… anyway, I think that would have hurt a lot of things.”
