Simon Cowell has confirmed that Mariah Carey will be involved in his new televised singing competition, The X-Factor. Mariah’s role in the show has yet to be fully determined.

“I think Mariah will have a role on the TV live shows,” Cowell confirmed to radio personality Jackie Brown. “I met her recently and she was on great form. And her idea was to be the judge of the judges, which only Mariah could come up with. She’ll be involved in some form. I literally adore her. I love her to bits.”

Music industry exec, L.A. Reid, who was recently announced as a judge on The X-Factor, oversaw Mariah Carey’s recent comeback that began with her multi-platinum The Emancipation Of Mimi album in 2005.
