I cannot wait until they finally finalize the new judges on The X Factor, but until then we’ll have to keep speculating and spreading rumors.
Simon knows that Adele would cost a pretty penny to hire, seeing as she’s at the top of her game right now, but since Simon has an indoor waterfall in his home, he has said, “money is not an option” if it means snagging Adele.
A source told the Daily Star, “Simon is always looking for new directions and ideas. He thinks Adele’s success and achievements are incredible.”
Let me explain something about how The X Factor and any reality singing competition shows work. The judges can’t be too famous; also they can’t be at the height of their careers. Paula Abdul obvious passed her prime.
Nicole Scherzinger never really “made it” as a solo artist. Steve Tyler may have been the front man for Aerosmith, but he’s getting old, you know? And J.Lo, she’s still hot as ever, but Jenny from tha block was many years ago.
What I’m trying to say is…Adele is too good to settle down into a judges chair anytime soon.
However, Simon thinks he needs a true talent like Adele to really improve his show and ratings.
“He recognizes that true musicianship and a serious approach can bring a lot of credibility and an extra dimension to his show,” says the source.
Also, “The producers love her.” Could have guessed that.
