The X Factor on FOX seems to be the center of constant rumors as to who the new judges will be, after Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul were fired from the series. Britney Spears and Stacy Keibler have both been rumored to be in talks with the series, and now there are two more names to add that ever-growing list: Fergie and LeAnn Rimes. More after the jump!
Is anyone else wishing that Simon Cowell would choose the new judges already for The X Factor? We recently heard that Britney Spears was in negotiations with the series, but she was demanding more than the $10 million offer that Simon put on the table. Now, reports claim that Fergie wants a piece of The X Factor action, according to Life & Style Magazine. An insider reportedly told them: “There have been some conversations. It’s in the early stages, but Fergie’s the one who approached the producers about joining the panel.”
Meanwhile, LeAnn Rimes’ name has also been thrown into the mix of possible new judges. The singer’s husband, Eddie Cibrian, confirmed the negotiations to Extra, revealing: “They’ve been talking. I think she would be unbelievable on a show like that. Plus she can sing.” However, another source said that Simon may be holding out for another singer: Adele. The insider claims: “Simon is always looking for new directions and ideas. He thinks Adele’s success and achievements are incredible.”
