Mariah Carey to Join X-Factor?

Another week, another new X-Factor rumor. For a show that hasn’t had a minute of airtime yet, there’s a lot of drama surrounding the US version of X-Factor.

Now that the dust settled on the whole Cheryl Cole getting hired and fired, there’s a new rumor that Mariah Carey will join the show.

Mimi is reportedly considering a season long mentor position on the show. And you know one minute of Mariah on your show is equivalent to one of the permanent judges salaries for the whole season.

A source connected with the upcoming Fox series told Entertainment Weekly that “Mariah and Simon [Cowell] are great friends, and now [that] she has had her babies, it’s very possible that she will be involved [in] some way in the later stages of the show. She has always said she wanted to work with the show, so it’s something they will certainly be discussing ideas for soon.”

Mimi may be a little too diva-ish for the show. But than again, drama sells, right? What do you think of Mariah on X-Factor?
