Mariah Carey's 'X Factor' Role Revealed?

Mariah Carey will appear on The X Factor but not as a judge, as was previously rumored.

The 41-year-old entertainer will be “a guest of a judge – in this case Simon Cowell,” People reports.

Mariah is definitely confirmed to be a part of X Factor,” a source told the mag about the show, which premieres on Fox Sept. 21. “She is confirmed to tape something with Simon Cowell at the judge’s homes.”

“Each of the judges [Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger, and L.A. Reid] will tape something with mentors they have selected and Simon has selected Mariah to do that with him. The judge’s mentor the talent they pick and she will be working with them,” explained the source.

    Mariah has had 18 #1 hits (beating out Elvis and only under The Beatles) and has been relevant since 1990. Go jump off a you- know- what haters…
    I don’t care if you don’t think those tid bits of info are not important…facts speak for themselves and girl is a record setting, iconic legend. I wonder if Bieber,Gomez and the rest of the (untalented) like of today will be relevant for 20+ years? MC can sit and take care of them kids all she wants. Diva is still making bank and laughing while at it, too.

    I don’t know why are so negative.It’s not true that X factor is another talentless show.I really like the whole concept and everything about it.Leona Lewis is one of the winners of this show,and you can’t tell that she is talentless or stupid.And speaking of Mariah Carey,isn’t she one of the greatest voices out there.Her vocal range is magnificent and she can definitely teach something those contestants.
