Pure X Factor – Mariah Carey Will Join The X Factor To Judge The Judges

Written by:

I’ve always liked Mariah and I’m so excited she is going to be a part of the new X Factor in the U.S. More below on her upcoming role from Rollingstone.

Although Mariah Carey has long been rumored to sit alongside Reid as a judge, Cowell told radio host Jackie Brown the eight-months-pregnant singer will join the series when it premieres in September — but not in the role fans had expected.

“I think Mariah will have a role on the live shows,” Cowell told Spokane, Washington disc jockey Brown on Friday during her 92.9ZZU radio show. “I met her recently and she was on great form.”

Citing Carey’s pregnancy, Cowell confirmed she has been taken out of the running as a judge, but he revealed that the singer had a better idea in mind that would allow her to still take part.

“Her idea was to be the judge of the judges, which only Mariah could come up with,” Cowell told Brown. “She’ll be involved in some form. I literally adore her. I love her to bits.”
