Newest "X-Factor" Addition: Def Jam's L.A. Reid

March 16, 2011 By:

They keep teasing us with X-Factor judges, and I’m starting to think Simon Cowell just wants to remind us that this show still exists.

Island Def Jam’s chairman, Antonio “L.A.” Reid will be one of four judges on the show, and that “it’s a done deal.”

An official announcement is expected to be made soon.

It’s about damn time, because auditions begin at the end of the month.

At this point, if Cowell hasn’t filled the other slots, I'd just rename the show “American Idol” and ask Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler if they’re down.

And when Randy Jackson gets his feelings hurt, just explain to him that we already have a cool guy with glasses.
