We haven’t heard much since all the shenanigans of the departure of Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger from X Factor a few weeks ago. We did hear some rumors about Mariah Carey being a possible replacement, but nothing further has come of that goss.. for now. Today we have info that looks as if they might have chosen a new judge.. Miss Janet Jackson! It hasn’t been announced, but Janet was interviewed by Anderson Cooper (which will air on Monday on his show) and during that interview when she was asked about rumors of her joining the show, she stumbled and giggled and basically said that she couldn’t say anything… Oooh could Janet be the new judge to replace Paula or Nicole?
When Anderson asked her if she could confirm or deny the rumors of her joining the show, her response, was “Oh my God..” She stumbled and mumbled and giggled and then eventually said “No I’m not a judge on The X Factor… currently…but that’s all I really think I should say.”
Ah, I love it, she’s a terrible liar! I think she basically gave it away… which is fine by me. I think Janet would be the PERFECT choice for an ‘X Factor’ judge and hopefully it will bring her back to the lively ‘Janet’ era. I also think it would a big pull for the show so it makes a lot of sense. Guess we will just have to wait for an official announcement. Wouldn’t it be amazing if Janet and Mariah were the 2 new judges!?
