Mariah Carey Hero on X-Factor

November 9, 2008

Mariah Carey flew to England for three days to participate on Simon Cowell’s The X Factor, where she sang her classic hit Hero with the show’s contestants. Read the rest of the story and see photos and video of Mariah Carey below.

Mariah Carey hopped the pond to participate in Simon Cowell’s X Factor show this week. The three day trip was filled with divalicious behavior by the hot singer. Carey was seen leaving the airport with husband Nick Cannon with 20 bags in tow, which makes about 6.67 bags per day of her trip.

Mariah Carey lived up to her diva reputation as she arrived in London for a three-night stay today… accompanied by 20 suitcases. The singer and her husband Nick Cannon needed two huge trolleys to carry their bags. Porters pushing them through Heathrow airport seemed bemused by their haul.

Cowell is reportedly very angry with Carey, as her diva behavior carried beyond the airport. She apparently kept contestants on the British version of American Idol waiting for three hours before her surprise mentoring session. Her delay caused them to be late for the show’s rehearsals, and one contestant had to miss them all together, as the 16 year old is not allowed on set after 7 pm.

“Simon was furious about the delays and really annoyed with Mariah. He just wanted the hopefuls to meet the star and get back to the studios. He got so frustrated at one stage he ordered an assistant to go to the Dorchester [Carey’s hotel] and order the contestants into their limos.”

Carey was on the show for “Mariah Carey Night,” which resulted from the contestants version of her song Hero being number one on the British charts. They sang the song to commemorate fallen soldiers for the UK’s annual Remembrance Day. On top of mentoring the contestants as they geared up to sing her hits, she also preformed her new single I Stay in Love and her classic hit Hero, which the contests joined her in singing (see video below).
