Mariah In London: From 'X Factor' To World Tour Plans!

< > MC & NC arrive in London


Last week, London was treated to three days full of Mimi festivities! Though it was a short trip, Mariah kept her English fans busy and hungry for more! Shortly after arriving at the Heathrow airport on Thursday (Nov 6), Mariah and hubby Nick Cannon continued to the Dorchester hotel where they greeted all fans who anxiously waited for them. Mariah, who hasn't been in London in over six months was greeted with gifts and banners reading "Congrats MC and Nick!"

The next day, contestants from the UK talent show X Factor came to Mariah's hotel where they each got a personal mentoring session from the diva herself. The contestants were described to be having the time of their lives with Mariah, as they prepared for the night's live show. On Friday night, the young acts faced one of the toughest parts of the competition as they were judged for singing Mariah tunes.
