Mariah Carey’s husband, presenter and comedian, Nick Cannon says that his wife would love to fill the empty seat on the judge’s panel in “American Idol”.

Simon Cowell’s announcement to that he is going to quit the panel has sparked a huge whirlwind of rumors about who might nab the spot. But the sensational diva, Mariah Carey, could be in a chance as she was very popular when she appeared on the show as a guest mentor in 2008.

Nick Cannon told Hollywood Reporter “She talks about it, she says, 'I would love to do that'…She is one of the greatest singers of our time; she would be great.

"I don't know if she has enough time, though, but if they could work with her schedule, I know she would love to do Idol."
