Mariah Carey, who recently signed on to judge 'American Idol', has inked a deal that makes her the highest paid judge in reality television.  
 
The deal is reportedly worth $18 million, which soars past Jennifer Lopez, who signed for $12 million on her first year, and even past Britney Spears who judges 'X Factor' for $15 million. 
 
Carey is a powerful performance artist, and a nurturing person, making her a perfect fit to judge the show.
