Simon Cowell has confirmed that Mariah Carey will be a part of the US version of 'The X Factor'.
Simon has kept tight lipped about the identities of his judging panel, but he has revealed that Mariah will be involved, although she will not be a judge.
He says, "I think Mariah will have a role on the TV live shows. 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."
He added, "I literally adore her. I love her to bits."
Producer LA Reid has already signed up as a judge, while Cheryl Cole, Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger are all rumoured to be taking part in the show.
