This is probably our favourite "Mariah Carey for American Idol"-related tweet of the day and it comes from an unlikely source - Leonard Nimoy.
The actor best known for his portrayal of Mr Spock in the original Star Trek series tweeted his disappointment at Mariah's good news:
Mariah Carey got the "American Idol" job replacing Jennifer Lopez. I was hoping to get the call. I would have been less expensive. LLAP-- Leonard Nimoy (@TheRealNimoy) July 24, 2012
Nothing against Mariah Carey. I'm just saying....LLAP-- Leonard Nimoy (@TheRealNimoy) July 24, 2012
Anyone want to help us start a campaign to get Spock on Idol?
Leonard Nimoy is also one of the cast members of sci-fi show Fringe (which is very good) so we're including a gallery about fringes. Yeah, it's tenuous...
