In a recent radio interview, former ‘American Idol’ judge Simon Cowell confirmed that Grammy-winning superstar Mariah Carey will be involved with FOX’s ‘The X Factor.’

But wait — does this mean she’ll be a judge? In a word, no.

Cowell told radio personality Jackie Brown that Carey won’t be on the judges’ panel, due to her pregnancy, but she’ll still be part of the show in some capacity.

“I think Mariah will have a role on the TV live shows,” he said. “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. She’ll be involved in some form. I literally adore her. I love her to bits.”

Music mogul L.A. Reid is the only confirmed ‘X Factor’ judge thus far, though there have been reports that Cheryl Cole of the U.K. ‘X Factor’ will be joining the show, as well.
