Mariah-in-gold-dress With Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler signed up as a new "American Idol" judge, there's still a seat to fill -- and the prospect floating around as we head into the weekend is none other than Mariah Carey.

So while the negotiators do their negotiating, and the lawyers do their lawyering, the Ministry presents a little retro rewind of Mariah from the Palm Springs International Film Festival in January.

What do you think -- could Mariah fit in as "Idol's" next Paula Abdul? She does have the wardrobe.
