At this point, if you haven’t been contacted to join the judging panel of The X Factor there must be seriously wrong with you. If Simon Cowell doesn’t want you on his show you must have like a hideous facial deformity or weird tiny hands, or something.
At first, Simon and show producers were throwing around names like Britney Spears and Mariah Carey to join the judging panel, but apparently they were too expensive or something because they’ve moved on to people like LeAnn Rimes and…wait for it, LaToya Jackson. I know, I was like “why not Tito!?”
LeAnn would LOVE to join the show, it means she can retire from full time swimsuit wearing and get a real job.
She’s the latest person rumored to be joining the show and sources say she had a “great meeting” with the show’s producers.
Let’s take a brief look at a history of the rumored X-Factor judges.
It all started when Simon Cowell fired Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger. At first, names like Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and even Mariah Carey were being thrown into the mix. This had tongues wagging, but then Nick Cannon shot down rumors and was like “My wife is famous, she’d never join your stupid talent show.” Obviously, I’m paraphrasing but you know what I mean.
Second round of rumors included Janet Jackson, Fergie, Britney Spears and even Beyonce. However, none of these women have even taken a meeting with The X Factor.
Then they started dipping into low-rent talent. LaToya Jackson was supposedly in the running, but who knows if she even got a meeting, all I knows is she was doing the talk-show circuit and being like “Hire me Simon!” Pathetic.
Then Avril Lavigne was reportedly “in talks” with the competition show. Last time I checked she had a very thick Canadian accent, so there’s no way the American audience would understand anything she was saying. Cheryl Cole reference, anyone?
Now, we’ve arrived at LeAnn Rimes. I hope Simon Cowell knows what he is doing, with this lame pool of celebrity talent they are gonna end up hiring Chaka Khan and Ke$ha’s stylist as the new judges.
