Enrique Iglesias is set to guest judge on The X Factor tonight! People is reporting that the 36-year-old Spanish singer and big-time producer Pharrell Williams will help the contestants on the reality singing competition on tonight’s episode. In addition to Iglesias, the website reports that part-Venezuelan songstress Mariah Carey will also act as a guest judge – along with Rihanna.
This week on The X Factor, the 32 remaining contestants are reportedly traveling to the homes of Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger, L.A. Reid, and the show’s creator, Simon Cowell. While at the stars’ homes, contestants will work closely with judges and surprise guests.
A source told People that the acts were “totally blown away” when they met their mentors at the star homes. “Then it was even more nerve-wracking performing for a guest judge,” the source said. “Some of the girls were especially delighted when they saw Enrique and Pharrell.” We bet!
We aren’t sure where Iglesias found the time to participate in the singing competition – the singer’s hands are currently full from his Euphoria tour with Cuban American rapper Pitbull and bachatero Prince Royce. Still, we’re excited to see Iglesias try his hand at judging! Tonight’s episode of The X Factor airs at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
