The 42-year-old songstress is set to give American Idol a new lease on life, but according to her brother, the mother of two will bring a lot more than that to the ailing FOX show.
“Mariah is hysterically funny, and I don’t think people really know that,” the songstress’ sibling, Morgan Carey, told Celebuzz.
“I think her fans and fans of the show will appreciate her sense of humor. She’s classic.”
But Carey’s brother said he think his sister’s arrival to the show could not have come sooner.
“I think it’s going to be wonderful to have such a high level of artistry on the show… finally,” Morgan added.
According to the singer’s husband Nick Cannon, the “Obsessed” singer will be a tough judge on American Idol and not let mediocre talent hit the stage.
“She’s very serious about music and singing. She’ll probably be the toughest judge that’s ever been on [the] show,” Cannon told Access Hollywood.
