American Idol 2014 Spoilers: How Much Do The Judges Make?

With the start of a new season on American Idol 2014 and some new American Idol judges 2014, we were a little curious to know how much do the judges make on American Idol Season 13? For these prices, I would be willing to take the gig, even if it is on a dying show! Watch some people sing, give their feedback and some press interviews? Yeah, I’d be willing to accept a position with FOX, if they need me and for half of what the American Idol judges 2014 make! Check out their rates below in our American Idol 2014 spoilers!

American Idol 2014 Spoilers - Season 13 Judges

With the decline in the ratings on American Idol over the past few seasons, the talk was about bringing in judges that were cheaper and wouldn’t increase the budget of a show that happens to be losing sponsorship, including one of their big sponsors AT&T! The producers did not go that route and thought this judging panel would bring back some of the fans they lost last season with the drama between judges Nicki Minaj and Mariag Carey. It has not happened yet, but give it some time people…the chemistry between these judges is great and I hope people tune in to see it!

As far as what the judges on American Idol 2014 earn, we have some figures. Jennifer Lopez is said to make $17.5 million! Compare that to Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr.who are said to make about $5 million each. I would be a little upset if I was Keith or Harry, but you know J.Lo is the bigger star out of all of them and needed that cash to come back for Season 13!

  1. I’m sorry, but she ain’t worth it. No judge is worth that much money. I myself prefer Keith and Harry. It’s great to see Keith out of the shadows of the drama those two “divas” caused last year. And Harry is a real bad-ass as he seems to be taking on the “mean” judge role. They seem to be doing just fine and would do so without JL.
