Mariah Carey Sees Herself In Some American Idol Hopefuls (Recap)
The pop diva joined the show for the upcoming season, along with new judges Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban, and returning member Randy Jackson.
"I didn't have a show like Idol," says Mariah. "I waitressed and did all these other things I hear a lot of the contestants talk about doing. I always sang and I always wrote; it's just having that ambition – you really can't let go of your dreams. When I see that…it's like 'that person has it.'" - Watch the promo spot here.
