In the ultimate battle of the divas, it seems that singing superstar Mariah Carey has bumped Delta Goodrem out of her chair on The Voice next year.
The We Belong Together singer, 50, is said to be in the final stages of negotiations with Seven to replace the Australian songbird, 35, after the network snapped up the show from Nine in August.
According to a source, Mariah, who famously did a stint on American Idol in 2013, will be the big drawcard for the season, after Seven believed Nine was spending a lot of money on "B-listers" Kelly Rowland, Guy Sebastian and Boy George.
In May, Woman's Day reported Delta was already struggling to cope with the pressure of bubbling rivalries and left fans second guessing whether this might be her final year on the show.
"Delta's happy to get passionate about her team, but she'd prefer if there was less squabbling," said our insider at the time.
In one episode, fans noticed how rattled Delta was when Guy Sebastian shamed her.
After Josh Pywell's audition, overzealous Guy, 38, stood in front of Delta, who was pleading with the talented star to join her team.
"You might ask why I'm standing in front of Delta – that's because she can be physically distracting to a young lad, and I don't want her to influence your decision with her eyes."
Digging himself a bigger hole, Guy then seemingly accused Delta of being a flirt when he put the question to the audience that perhaps they should ask Josh's girlfriend for permission before the bubbly star got on his shoulders.
