The X Factor on Fox will be starting auditions next month, and Simon Cowell has been hard at work finding the next set of judges to replace Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, who were fired after only one season. Rumors have been flying that Janet Jackson could be joining the panel, as well as Britney Spears. While Simon Cowell did not comment on the Janet Jackson rumors, when asked about Britney Spears, Simon replied with: “Are we flattered that there could be interest? Yes. I’ve learned a big lesson: keep your mouth shut. Don’t give it all away.”
Simon Cowell did state that the only thing we can count on is most likely seeing two ladies on the panel again, and some have been speculating that Fergie could be a possible candidate as well. Simon took on the speculation with: “There is a load of speculation. Some true and some not true. It’s true to say there are a lot more people who have entered the frame this year and we really waited to see who was going to contact us before we actually contacted people.” Simon Cowell will be meeting with various people in the next few weeks before they come to a decision.
