On being approached to do American Idol:
Mariah: "I was on the fence about the whole thing". "I got approached by all the shows". "But he [Nick Cannon] said I should do it because it's the top, it's the cream of the crop. And I felt like, 'Do the show that's produced massive stars who have had major careers.' "
Nicki: "I had a lot of talks with people -- my family, my best friends, my label, Lil Wayne, management and then the producers". But in the end, it was Idol exec Mike Darnell who got the 'yes' out of her. "He was so lovable and made me feel so comfortable and confident. He kept saying, 'I promise we're going to protect you; you're going to love it, we're a big family.'
