Will Simon Cowell be able to land the music superstar who, it was rumored, had discussions about being a judge in season one of the "X Factor?"
The music superstar is Mariah Carey.
Randy Jackson, a judge on ‘American Idol," in a conference call today with reporters, was asked about the possibilty of Carey showing up on the "X Factor" in season two, reports E! Online.
Here’s what Jackson said, " ‘She’d be amazing. I mean, I manage her, so of course I’m going to say that. She’d be amazing.’ So does Jackson think Carey will actually join the show? ‘I don’t know if that’s ever going to happen,’ he said. ‘Look, Simon’s one of the smartest people I know. I’m sure he’s got some very interesting ideas up his sleeve.’
The article continues, "Though Jackson is Carey’s manager and a judge on a rival reality singing competition show, he says he wouldn’t have any problems with his artist joining ‘The X Factor.’ ‘No, no, not at all. She’s her own person. She can of course do whatever she wants and she always will do that,’ Jackson explained, adding, ‘Simon’s one of my dearest friends in the world.’ "
