On the UK version of the show, each judge takes their contestants to their homes abroad and are assisted by a friend from the music industry to choose the final four or three acts for each of the judges respective categories.
The ‘Hero‘ singer is set to serve as an advisor to the show’s star Simon Cowell, assisting him in choosing the contestants that will fill the spots in his category.
This means that Ms.Carey will be replacing former singer Sinitta who fills that role in X Factor UK.
Speaking to a publication today, Sinitta is reported to have revealed:
Well, let’s just say feathers will fly if Mariah takes my spot. Although she is a mega diva vocally, you can expect another ‘X Factor’ USA drama. I won’t just roll over and take it. I hope she can run in high heels.”
Either way, it is very refreshing to know that the series will have such a high presence of talent.
For with Cheryl ‘I Couldn’t Carry A Note Even If Armed With Mary Poppins Carpet Bag’ Cole out of the picture, the show has an even greater chance of facing up to rival show ‘The Voice’ which has received critical acclaim for its focus on the vocal abilities of its competitors.
