The X Factor on FOX is down a few judges, and with the season two auditions around the corner, they need to find some replacements fast! The latest superstar to be rumored to be joining the panel is Janet Jackson. More after the jump!
The X Factor on Fox will be starting auditions next month, which means that Simon Cowell needs to get busy to find replacements for Steve Jones, Paula Abdul, and Nicole Scherzinger, all of whom were fired from the series. Could Janet Jackson be joining the judging panel? According to a pal of Janet Jackson, who spoke to US Weekly recently: “She wants a spot on the judging panel.”
While nothing has officially been announced, we will definitely not count Janet Jackson out, especially after an odd interview she did recently with Anderson Cooper. When she was asked about not currently being a judge on The X Factor, Janet replied with: “No, I am not, but that’s all I really think I should say.” Intriguing to say the least – could she be trying to hide the fact that negotiations are in the works?
We do know that Simon Cowell was planning a meeting this week about the panel, and that he was looking for a big star. Could Janet Jackson be that star? Would she make a good fit as a judge on The X Factor? Sound off below and tell us what you think!
