The X Factor Crew Talks Mariah Carey and the "Special" Simon-Paula Dynamic

Mariah Carey. Ever heard of her?

Of course you have. Which means you're a fan, which means you're probably pumped to hear the news that she may appear as a mentor on Fox's new reality competition, The X Factor. To get the latest word on the street, we spoke to the host, Steve "so hot it hurts to look at him" Jones, plus judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger about the possibility of the legendary diva appearing on the show.

Oh, and we also heard Steve's theories on Paula and Simon Cowell's epic romance. "He's like a schoolboy on the playground poking the girl he fancies with a stick," he tells us. "He just lives for angering her."

Oh, how we have missed the Simon-Paula dynamic. Check out our interviews with the X Factor peeps above, and then tell us if you're excited or burnt out at the thought of Simon returning to your television to say the word "rubbish" every week.
