Mariah Carey To Join ‘The X Factor UK’?

Published: Saturday 13th May 2017 by Sam

Is Mariah Carey returning to the talent show arena as a judge?

According to reports from the British press, the answer could very well be yes.

Several sources claim the former vocal wonder is in talks to join judging panel of The X Factor UK. 

If indeed true, the role would see Mimi star alongside Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh on the ITV1 hit. The 47-year-old would allegedly be replacing Nicole Scherzinger who is reportedly in contention for a role in the movie adaptation of ‘Wicked.’

When approached for comment, a spokesperson for the show offered the following in regard to Mimi:

“No formal decision has yet been made regarding the full judging panel for The X Factor 2017.”

The show wouldn’t be Mariah’s first foray into the realm of reality singing competitions. After all, who could forget the star’s ill-fated turn on ‘American Idol’ with Nicki Minaj?

As for the validity of her ‘X Factor’ recruitment? We’re skeptical. She commanded a colossal fee for American Idol, something ‘X Factor’ – in a smaller market – wouldn’t be able to match.

Still, Mimi is full of surprises these days, is on her business hustle proper, and could do with the show as a promotional platform. So who knows.

      U mean she better.

      Simon adores and respects her. and have also said once before that Mariah can do whatever she wants kn x-factor. She would never disrespect her like idol did.

    I think she would be much better suited as a judge here, rather than on Idol! I say, if she’s going to another reality show, this one is the pick!

    I mean why not, she becomes so popular around Christmas in the UK.

    She’ll fight off any female that sits with her on the panel like last time. I think it would be a lot safer if Sharon Osborne took another series off the show. Just make it a 3 male 1 female panel.

    Rashad is such a better writer. I’m not even a big Mariah fan and these Mariah jabs are uncalled for.
