Tonight is the big night with The X Factor hitting the small screen again.
And, lets face it, we are all talking and waiting for Britney Spears.
Even Simon Cowell is talking Britney.
in an exclusive interview with In Touch magazine, he reveals why the singer was his number one choice, but perhaps Mariah Carey should cover her ears and block out what he has to say.
The mag reports….
Before Mariah Carey signed with American Idol for a reported $18 million, Simon Cowell reveals to In Touch that the superstar gave him a ring about judging The X Factor.
“Mariah called me about X Factor and I met with her, but my main concern was that she might have found it harder on X Factor than on American Idol ,” Simon reveals in the new issue of In Touch, on newsstands today. “Mainly because Idol is a more gentle show and Mariah is not someone who wants to say ‘no’ to people,” Simon explains in an exclusive interview.
“I think she’ll have an easier time on American Idol than this show, definitely.”
So he’d rather have tough talking Britney Spears and Demi Lovato next to him on the judges’ panel than sweet singing Mariah? “Oh yes, I am delighted,” he gushes. “We literally only approached two people seriously, and that was Britney and Demi.”
Our question to you? Who would you rather watch Britney or Mariah?
