    Essence reports that songbird Mariah Carey will not be appearing as a judge on X Factor, Simon Cowell's post-American Idol talent search reality series. Cowell reportedly offered the uber diva the chance to join him and Antonio "L.A." Reid, who was the head honcho at her label, IDJ, until recently, as a judge. But she is awaiting the birth of twins (one boy, one girl) and writing music for her next album so she is too damn busy to join the judging panel.

    Who do you think should serve as a judge on X Factor? Did Mariah Carey make a mistake turning it down?
