Janet Jackson on ‘X Factor’ Judges Panel: Flattered, But No

We’re a little disappointed Janet Jackson isn’t going to be beaming into our living rooms each week on The X Factor. After she skirted the issue with Anderson Cooper, it turns out she was one of the names being thrown around. 

She tells TheInsider.com that she’s “very flattered that X Factor let me know that I was being considered for next season, but it just wouldn’t be possible.”

Boo! Hiss! This seemed like a perfect fit…and we’d like to see Janet back on TV. Good times! 

Speculation about her joining the show was apparently premature. Janet’s team added, “There have been absolutely no meetings between Janet and anyone with regard to X Factor.” So, the deal wasn’t even close to happening.  

With  Paula Adbul and Nicole Scherzinger becoming X Factor exes after the debut season, it is anyone’s guess who will fill their seats — although Simon Cowell has said it will be two ladies (to balance himself and the other male judge).
