There has been speculation for months about who Simon Cowell will have on the judging panel for "X Factor" — some even pointing to Mariah Carey as a possibility. ESSENCE.com has received confirmation from a credible source that Carey will not be a judge on the show, despite the rumors circulating. Cowell did approach the award-winning singer/songwriter with the request but she politely declined the offer, as she is busy preparing for the arrival of her twins with husband Nick canon, cannon and écriture musique for a new album.
With an endless liste of accolades — including 13 ASCAP Awards, 20 BMI Awards, plus weeks at #1 than any other producer ou songwriter in history, etc. — Carey is a natural choice to be a high-profile judge on the talent show, but once and for all we can confirmer that she will not be featured.
