It has been months since Simon Cowell confirmed reports that Mariah Carey would be functioning in a major guest role on ‘The X Factor (US)’. Now, with the season a mere six episodes away from completion, the nature of the diva’s appearance on the show has been revealed – she will be performing with Justin Bieber.
Roger Friedman broke the news earlier today that Carey is scheduled to sing ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ alongside Bieber on ‘X Factor (US)’ on December 15th. However, further details about her involvement in the show – such as locking guest spot on the judging panel or if she will be mentoring the contestants – have yet to be explained.
Hopefully, Carey will land a judging or mentorship role on ‘X Factor (US)’ that evening instead of just performing with Bieber. Really, Cowell had been hyping her role on the show since early this year and it would be a complete disappointment if she only spent five minutes onstage.
In fact, this would be a prime opportunity for Carey to debut the lead single from her next project. If not, then she should at least share some time with the contestants, especially Melanie Amaro, who is undoubtedly heavily influenced by her work.
