Five-time Grammy Award winner Mariah Carey has joined “American Idol” as a new judge, according to a news release.

Carey will be a member of the judges’ panel when the Fox singing competition series returns in January.

“As a singer, songwriter and producer, it’s going to be fun and rewarding to help find new talent and give back with American Idol,” Carey said in the news release. “I’m currently in the studio working on my new album and its first single, ‘Triumphant,’ which will be out early next month. I can’t wait to channel my creative energy as a part of this show which is a massive global phenomenon.”
