Mariah Carey In ‘Final’ Talks For X Factor USA

Published: Thursday 18th Aug 2011 by Rashad

As reported here, media mogul Simon Cowell has long sought diva/friend Mariah Carey to guest-mentor on the upcoming FOX reality talent show X Factor USA (premiering September 21).  Now, word has it the ‘Touch My Body’ singer may be one step closer to finalizing that deal:

Deadline reports:

“The X Factor judges will have one superstar work in each panelists’ respective homes to whip their contestants into shape for the show. Simon Cowell is in final negotiations to have Mariah Carey as his personal pick to mentor his contestants from his house. The X Factor is pulling out all the stops to draw in other superstars as mentors.”

Rumor has it legendary names such as Mary J. Blige and Janet Jackson have also been mentioned.

With ‘American Idol’, ‘The Voice’, and ‘Majors & Minors’ all making their way to television in the coming months (and packing star power), it appears the talent show has officially become the new stomping ground for seasoned/already-established performers.  And, while some singles are blowing up the charts (see: ‘Moves Like Jagger’, ‘On the Floor’), given the album sales climate, no one has substantially proven them to be effective.

Only time will prove when this bandwagon will break.

    The Voice is a good talent show. It’s not as superficial as AI was. X factor looks more like it will but I hope mariah gives humble opinions and judges a person on vocal talent rather than looks.

    Not a fan of A.L, but LOVE The Voice! A.I creates/fabrics everything right down to simple auditions, hides contestants personal lives, breaks people down with humiliation yada yada. But the format of The Voice is really intelligent and truly a talent show rather then a popularity contest. I really Hope Mariah doesn’t do the show because I’d rather she keeps putting out solid album after album and amazing fragrances and not get distracted by the show and Simon.

    She would make a great judge however, very honest (brutally so at times) but she’s the face of Sweetness and light, and that’s exactly what a judge needs to embody. JLo’s done a great Job, and so has Christina to an extent (although Xtine has a bit of a harder time controlling her Queen, as she’s usually got some kinda bitchy cutting through her voice when she speaks, lol)

    ALL these Women tho. Christina, JLo, Mariah; Strong as all HELL these women are!!! Putting themselves out there the way they do, experimenting, trying new things, and living their life in the public eye. These are F*ckin’ Women!

    Good for Mariah. I only like The Voice, because they have real talent on there.

    I REALLY don’t think she should, but it’s her career after all.

  12. YOOSONDALOOSE August 19, 2011

    That would be great! She would rock it, and it would reboost her career!
    Think she should do it!
