Simon Cowell is sooooo over American Idol. He’s already looking towards the future and his new show X-Factor, which is coming to the U.S. next year.
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.
Nick Hangs Out While Mariah Makes Money
We hear two huge music industry power couples are on the short list for the jobs—Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon and Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony!
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.
Jennifer Lopez: I've Never Felt Negative About Myself
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?
