Mariah Carey Will Appear on X-Factor, Not as Judge

The preggers star will have a role on the talent show.

Mariah Carey may have turned down a gig as one of the judges on the upcoming talent show X-Factor, but it looks as if she’ll have some role on the show. On a radio show yesterday, show creator Simon Cowell confirmed that Carey won’t judge because of the impending birth of her twins, but said she will definitely be involved in some capacity. “I would literally have to have the auditions in a maternity unit or something, and I think that's stretching it,” he said. “Her idea was to be the judge of the judges, which only Mariah could come up with, but she'll be involved in some form. I literally adore her. I love her to bits.”

The show is set to debut this fall on Fox. Antonio “L.A.” Reid has already signed up for one of the judges' spots. Stars who have reportedly turned down the gig include Snoop and Nicki Minaj.
