Hurricane RUINS Secret 'X-Factor' Plans

8/29/2011 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hurricane Irene is screwing with Simon Cowell's new show -- TMZ has learned Mariah Carey had to cancel a "very important" video shoot for "X-factor" because she couldn't travel ... and we're told it's thrown the show into "utter chaos."

Sources connected to the show tell us Mariah is in New York and was supposed to fly to meet Simon at a secret location to begin taping a special segment for the show in the last few days.

Cowell has stated in the past that Mariah has an important role on the show -- but he's not revealing any details.

Sources tell us ... producers are trying to figure out another way to get the footage they need for the show ... but so far, nothing is in the can.

Who cares. Mariah Carey has a good voice but it's obvious she has mental problems.

If this show is already in "utter chaos " because this bipolar alcoholic can't sing one of her stupid songs. It has no chance.

I hope he's not relying on her for too much because she'll show up drunk as a skunk with hubby having to hold her upright.

no Mariah isn't mentally unstable that exhaustion episode 10 years ago was over work. safety is more important than work it's not like they can't send cameras to her house in NYC to film this x factor footage if she can't find time to reschedule the france trip. she's got more important things to worry about than work #1 being Roc N Roe when they're fussy the only place they get quiet is in her loving arms Nick has said as Much and the nannies aren't wet nurses so she would've had to pump 78 bottles an infant eats 8-12 times a day
