Is Jennifer Love Hewitt The Next X Factor Judge?

April 25, 2013 12:04 PM by Donna W. Martin

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.

    JLH is a Goddess! I can’t believe she is not married!? I would put at least a 3 carat Marquise on her finger and treat her like a queen/goddess! She will succeed at anything she does!

    I really like JLH but Reba would bring more to the show. Its about music not acting. JLH never made it big as a singer and Reba is an icon!

    Jennifer Love Hewitt? Why? She can’t sing! She can barely act. Take a good look at that picture, she is starting to age. Hiring her would be a worse idea than hiring Britney Spears!

    Well, judges bring the expertise that they have used to weather the rials and tribulations of a professional career. So, if JLH is coming I guess they’re adding a sorely needed wet t-shirt segment to the competition.

    Reba’s attached to “Malibu Country” on ABC, which while on the bubble is still in contention for next season. However, she’d be terrific!

    Reba is boring like the Xfactor is however, IF JLove was a judge I would watch. Why? Because she has talent up the ying yang. She is a singer of course. And her music is beautiful. Most all the songs on “the client List” are JLove singing. Beautiful huh?
    Plus, she is a producer and director. She’s a great actress.
    Pick JLove for sure. The other 2 are boring..
    But JLove may have to decline because she has her own gig going on that’s off the charts.

    Now let’s vote on the TV show ‘Bates Hotel’. That is some great acting going on in that show huh? superb

    Of JLo, Kelly or Reba, I’d rather see Kelly. JLo has already been a judge on American Idol & they already have a country singer on the panel. Kelly just makes more sense to me & (I think) would be a better fit.
