Simon’s been compiling a list of potential judges for the show, which is likely to be a huge hit especially since American Idol is rumored to be on its way out.
According to the Daily Mirror, Cowell has pitched the two duos to show execs, along with Christina Aguilera, actor Jamie Foxx, Paula Abdul and Cheryl Cole.
J. Lo is vital because of her popularity amongst the Latin viewers. A source said: “Simon needs diversity on the panel if the US X Factor is going to be a big smash. Paula Abdul seems like a given which leaves three slots. He thinks J.Lo or her hubby would be fantastic additions so it could be bad news for Cheryl.”
We had a feeling Paula would be a part of the show in some capacity, but we never thought she was “a given.” Go Paula!
Who do you see as the best judges for the new show?
