OMG These X Factor 3 judges rumors
Simon Cowell’s search for a new X Factor judge may have a happy ending! A source tells Us Weekly that the Fox talent show creator, 53, hope that Jennifer Love Hewitt will join him and Demi Lovato on the panel this fall for season three. (Judges L.A. Reid and Britney Spears both departed after season two.)
“Simon is very interested,” says the source of the 34-year-old Client List actress and former pop star. (Hewitt’s song “BareNaked” charted back in 2002.) Also in the running: Reba McEntire and Kelly Rowland, who judged 2011’s U.K. X Factor.
While an X Factor rep says “this is pure speculation,” a Rowland pal assures Us: “Kelly’s nearly a done deal!”
Jennifer Love WHO? A D list actress who is barely a singer? Really? Methinks Hewitt’s PR rep is earning her paycheck this week. Kelly Rowland “quit” the X Factor UK after one season in 2011, but there were rumors she was fired after she ditched rehearsals with her contestants to work in America.
But then, proving Simon has no problem firing and rehiring–dumped X Factor US judge, Nicole Scherzinger took Kelly’s place in 2012! So don’t be surprised if that rumor is true…
