The X Factor on FOX is still on the hunt for two judges, and as the season two auditions are starting, Simon Cowell has been in talks with some stars. Unfortunately, for those of you were hoping, Janet Jackson will not be joining the panel. Read on for the scoop…
The X Factor on Fox is kicking off auditions for season two this month, and Simon Cowell is on the hunt to find replacements for Steve Jones, Paula Abdul, and Nicole Scherzinger, all of whom were fired from the series. While a friend of Janet Jackson recently revealed that Janet may be interested in a spot, Janet Jackson has confirmed that she will not be joining the show. Perez Hilton reports that Janet recently said: “I’m very flattered that X Factor let me know that I was being considered for next season, but it just wouldn’t be possible.”
Janet Jackson’s camp went on to reveal that the singer has too many prior commitments, including her tour and the big screen, so she just can’t juggle another gig. Meanwhile, the new rumor is that Britney Spears is in talks with Simon Cowell about a possible judging spot, and Simon is reportedly very intrigued by the pop singer. Could she be the newest judge on The X Factor? We’ll have to wait for the official announcement to find out!
