Mariah Carey


Music mogul Simon Cowell has confirmed reports Mariah Carey will be involved in the U.S. version of talent show 'X-Factor'.

Simon Cowell had previously denied rumours the "Hero" hitmaker, Mariah Carey, would join "The X Factor (US)" as a judge - because she'd be a new mum to twins when the show launched - but now the he reveals Carey will be a part of the show in some capacity.

He says, "I think Mariah will have a role on the TV live shows. I met her recently and she was on great form. And her idea was to be the judge of the judges, which only Mariah could come up with."

And Simon Cowell is thrilled to have Carey onboard: "I literally adore her. I love her to bits."

Producer L.A. Reid has already signed on to the show as a judge, while Jessica Simpson has revealed she was approached to join him. Cheryl Cole, Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger are also among those rumoured to be a part of the new TV talent search, which debuts in America later this year.
