The X Factor is down two judges, Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul. This week we learned that Simon Cowell decided to let the two ladies go, along with the host of the Fox show. So who are we going to see as judges next season? Keep reading to find out why Perez Hilton thinks he has what it takes to be the next X Factor judge.
Perez Hilton might not be known for his music talent, but he is not going to let that minor detail stand in his way. The blogger took to his website to send Simon Cowell a personal video message to let him know exactly why he should be a judge on The X Factor.
So what did Perez have to say? Perez Hilton definitely mentioned that he has a strong following both on his website and his Twitter account. As for his experience in music Perez says, “I am a huge music lover and I bring with me a lot of experience and expertise in the world of music. I have been a huge champion and early supporter of such artists as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Adele and Amy Winehouse.”
As for what type of style the blogger might bring to the table, he doesn’t want to be like anybody else. “I’m going to be me and be honest. That’s not necessarily being mean or necessarily loud, it’s just being the viewer and the expert,” Perez says in the video. Perez ends his message by saying he will do whatever it takes and he is the next X Factor judge.
It will be interesting to see who Simon Cowell chooses and if the show lands any big names in the music industry. There are a ton of rumors flying around the web that Beyonce and Mariah Carey have already been approached to do the show.
I like Perez’s confidence in sending a personal message to Simon, what do you think? If your not a fan of Perez, who would you like to see on the judge’s panel? Let us know your thoughts, leave a comment below.
