A person familiar with the show’s negotiations say Carey is being pursued to join the judging panel of the Fox talent competition. The source requested anonymity because of the private nature of negotiations, which were termed as serious. Carey has also been courted by other talent competitions, and her name has been thrown out in the past for “Idol” and other shows.
There are two openings: Both Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tylerannounced last week that they were leaving as judges after two seasons. Randy Jackson, who is a manager, producer and friend of Carey’s, is the only judge left. There are reports that Jackson’s role may shift as well.

Christina Aguilera has reportedly faced consistent fines while fulfilling her duties as a coach and judge on hit TV show “The Voice.” Aguilera allegedly has repeatedly been late on set, and it has not been unusual for her to turn up two hours after her scheduled start time.
Some are now suggesting that Aguilera was simply ignoring the fines being handed out to her and that they in no way helped to correct her tardiness. It is now being reported that show bosses are thinking to increase the fine levels for persistent lateness from their stars in an effort to not allow the behavior to continue in future series.
Christina Aguilera has apologized to The Voice contestant Tony Lucca for being a little more catty than judge-like. That however may not be enough to save the diva, who is reportedly disliked by many crew members working at the show.
Christina Aguilera and Tony Lucca are both former “Mickey Mouse Club” stars, but long lost history didn’t seem to go far between the two, who kept up a steady back and forth battle during season two of The Voice.
After Lucca’s Monday night performance of “99 Problems” Aguilera charged that the singer’s song pick was “derogatory towards women” adding “if that’s what you have to do.” Later when her own contestant Michael Kiwanuka performed, she remarked “Now that’s how a real man sings.”

EBENSBURG — A Johnstown man who was scheduled to go on trial for assaulting a prison guard became so disruptive during jury selection on Thursday that the judge had the man’s mouth briefly taped shut and his hands handcuffed to a belt around his waist.
But Erik Britt continued to attempt to mouth words and interrupt proceedings.
Judge Timothy Creany finally called off any attempt to choose a jury. Creany continued the case until March and ordered a mental-health exam of the defendant.
While Britt continued to shout about his rights being violated, deputies took him out a rear door of the courtroom.
