Now that the judging drama that hounded the US launch of The X Factor is now a long-forgotten memory, the show can more forward with the business of bringing on big name music stars to beef up the show. Each week, a music star will come on to the show to mentor the contestants … and top on that list of stars is Mariah Carey. Simon Cowell is working to finalize the deal to have new mama Mimi on The X Factor as one of the mentors … but, IMHO, it’s pretty much a sure thing. More »
