Would You Watch Janet Jackson on ‘The X Factor’? (POLL)
After parting ways with two of the female judges, rumors are swirling that Janet Jackson is flirting with the idea of joining Simon Cowell’s show The X Factor. The music icon joked on Anderson Cooper’s daytime show when asked about joining the judges’ table, saying, “Oh my God. (laughs) … No, I’m not a judge on The X Factor. … But that’s all I really think I should say.”
However, a source of The Hollywood Reporter says that Janet has “expressed interest” in show. The trade publication added that show creator Cowell is holding preliminary meetings to fill the spots. We’re thrilled about this possible new addition to the FOX show but what do you think? Would you watch Miss Janet on The X Factor? Cast your vote in the poll and state your case in the comments.
If this works out, Janet would be replacing Nicole Scherzinger and/or Paula Abdul who were both let go following the first season. Though seemingly close friends with Simon, Paula still didn’t manage to hold her seat at the judges’ table. However, no hard feelings for Paula. “Simon and I, along with Fox and Fremantle, have been communicating about this for a while now, and I have absolute understanding of the situation.”
