Mariah Carey Dumps Strictly For X Factor?
Did Mariah pull out of the Dancing show to appear on its rival?
Reports say that the 39 year old had been scheduled to appear on Saturday night's Strictly, but withdrew at short notice after X Factor Judge Simon Cowell told her representatives that she could not do both shows.
The cast from West End show Jersey Boys filled in for the slot on the BBC dancing show.
A BBC spokesman said: 'We had hoped to have Mariah Carey on the show but her schedule changed and made it impossible.'
Carey has already recorded 'I Want To Know What Love Is' for The X Factor which will be shown on next Sunday's show.
