Simon Cowell better stop trying to get Mariah Carey on the new season of the X Factor USA because according to her husband, Nick Cannon, the 'Dream Lover' hit maker is too big for the show.
Dismissing the reports that Mariah will join Simon Cowell on the judging panel when the show returns later this year, Nick claimed that taking on the role as a judge on the show, would be a "step down" in his wife's career.
Airing his opinions on his radio show Rollin’ With Nick Cannon, the star said:
"Like Nicole Scherzinger, my wife is not a fan of judging people. Nicole actually did say that she is used to performing, and the judging thing is not really natural for her. I really think that a lot of entertainers feel that way and I think these shows are really good shows, but when you get someone of status, or just big-time, career-wise, to do these shows, I personally think it’s a step down.”
He added: “Why would would my wife want to be on a show like that? For somebody who has a legendary career, I don’t know why they would do that.”
Simon's just been told!
