Jennifer Love Hewitt, 34, is best known these days for her role on The Client List but rumor has it she’s headed for a judge’s chair on season three of The X Factor! Could it be true? Take the jump to find out.
According to US Weekly, a source close to the show confirms that Hewitt is indeed in the running for a possible spot on season three’s judges’ panel. “Simon [Cowell] is very interested [in Hewitt as a possible judge],” the source said. And he is hopeful she will consider joining him and Demi Lovato this fall.
So why would Cowell, 53, want an actress to replace pop sensation Britney Spears on The X Factor judges’ panel? Well, as it turns out, Hewitt is more than just an actress; she has had some music experience and has recorded numerous songs through the years including “BareNaked,” which hit the charts in 2002.
But Hewitt isn’t the only one being considered for the job. Country music singer Reba McEntire and former Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland, who incidentally had a judge’s position on the 2011 U.K. X Factor, are also in the running.
There’s no word, at this time, on who may take the fourth judge’s chair. However, Mario Lopez will be returning for his second season as the show’s host. Will he have a co-host? We can’t be certain but we do know Khloe Kardashian will not return for X Factor season three.
Who do you think should take Britney Spears’ spot on The X Factor? Should it be Hewitt? Or should it be McEntire or Rowland? Who would you rather watch? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it so sound off in the comments and let us know.
