The rumor mill is churning full speed today with news that ex-[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Pussycat Doll[/lastfm] Nicole Scherzinger has been having a tough time sending people home from the hit talent show and may be replaced by none other than Mrs. Cannon herself, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Mariah Carey[/lastfm]!

Sources say that because Scherzy wasn’t comfortable seeing contestants get eliminated, she wanted out and once Mariah caught wind of the possible opening, she reportedly let Simon Cowell know she’d be willing to take her place.

Nicole recently took some heat from fans of the show when her vote sent one of this season’s favorites, Rachel Crow, home in tears. “I’m used to being on stage and performing and singing for people and people cheering for me,” Scherzinger said. “I am an artist first, not a judge first! The elimination process for me has been very difficult.”

Mariah has always been in the back of Cowell’s mind as an X Factor contributor in some capacity, but weather (Hurricane Irene nixed her travel plans during the judges’ home auditions), scheduling, babies and not enough cash apparently kept her at arm’s length.

As much as we love Nicole and her teary-eyed judging, we’re pretty sure Mariah will be a perfect fit for the show, not only for the sheer awesomeness of having Mimi back in our living rooms (god, I loved her MTV Cribs special!) but she’s going to have some serious advice for the talent that walks onto that stage!
