The rumor mill has been churning this one for a while now: Jennifer Lopez will not be returning to American Idol for a third season. No official announcement has been made, and J.Lo Tweeted to clarify that she hasn't made a decision yet, but that hasn't stopped everyone, from fans to AI alumni, from pondering worthy replacements.
One such alumnus: Season 10 upset, Pia Toscano.
"Mariah Carey," Pia told E! News of who she would like to see fill Jennifer's spot at the judges' table, should it become vacant. "We need a big voice out there. She's amazing."
Good choice! Although, we know Mariah is super busy taking care of her twins, Moroccan and Monroe, plus supporting her husband, America's Got Talent host Nick Cannon.
Of course, if J.Lo decides to stay, that's just fine, too.
"I think she adds a lot to the show," Pia said. "She gave me a lot of tips that I'm taking with me through my whole career. She's an incredible person to have judging because she's been doing this her whole life."
