‘X Factor’ Bosses ‘Lining Up Mariah Carey’ For Judging Role

Now this would be good.

‘X Factor’ bosses have got Mariah Carey in their sights for a judging role, according to reports.

Until earlier this week, it was believed that last year’s panel would return for the next series, but with that now in doubt, it’s being claimed that Simon Cowell is lining up Mariah for a job.

If Mariah does sign up, it’s believed she could be replacing Nicole Scherzinger.

“Nicole might be getting a big movie like ‘Wicked’,” he said. “If [Nicole doesn’t come back] Mel B would be a good idea for the panel.“Mel is on the US show with Simon.”
