Will Miley Cyrus Be The 4th Judge On ‘The X Factor’?


So … we are STILL waiting for the official word as to whether or not Britney Spears will become a judge on the upcoming season of The X Factor but we are also hearing about new casting RUMORS regarding the show. Simon Cowell and LA Reid are the two judges already signed on for season 2 of The X Factor and Britney will LIKELY get the 3rd spot … but what about the 4th judge? Well, according to sources close to Celebuzz, Miley Cyrus has been in talks for the judging gig. HMMM. Click below to find out more … and learn who else is rumored to be up for the job as 4th X Factor judge.

Miley Cyrus is being eyed as a potential fourth judge on Fox’s X Factor, Celebuzz has exclusively learned. The ‘Party in the USA’ pop star is on Simon Cowell‘s top-secret shortlist that also includes Fergie, Avril Lavigne and Demi Lovato, a production insider confirmed. “There have been talks with Miley,” the source revealed … 19-year-old Cyrus’ link to the vacant role comes as Cowell seeks to replace Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul, who he fired after last season. An X Factor spokesperson refused to confirm talks with any of the stars when contacted.

First off … The X Factor needs Britney, no question, the end. Secondly … I’m not sure how I feel about this Miley rumor. I would really hat to have to suffer dealing with Avril Lavigne every week and I’m not crazy about FergieDemi Lovato I don’t know very well so I have no opinion on her … and that leaves Miley. She’s a big name, she’s got a big fanbase … she’s young and hot right now. I can see her getting the gig. I don’t know which of these young ladies would fit on the judging panel alongside Britney, LA and Simon … what do you think? Do any of these young ladies seem like a good X Factor fit to you? If not, who would YOU cast as the 4th judge?

    I would pick Miley over any of the other options. Avril would be horrible. No thank you. And Miley obviously has the “X” factor, it’s what has gotten her this far. And she is very personable. I’d be okay with this. But we NEED Britney!

  • Britt

    I’m not too crazy about Miley being a judge. I don’t think she has enough experience. That being said, she is the best option out of those listed. I couldn’t imagine Avril judging anyone’s singing. She sounds awful.

  • KAS

    Avril??? NOOOOOOOOOOOO. Can’t stand her, no way I would watch.

  • Iheartaustin

    If Miley and Brit join the show I WILL explode!!!!

  • Yelena

    Miley seems too young to be judging anyone. Even though she did start out young in the industry… same with Demi. I think Fergie is the best option from that, severely lacking , list.

  • PetaF

    I can’t stand Fergie, I hate Avril and Demi seems a lil to quiet to be a judge. I actually think Miley and Brit would gel well together. They have a lot in common and they are both personable and funny. I hope this is true!

  • Amarie

    Miley would be the best option! I feel the SAME way as @PetaF about the other options. Miley and Brit together, I’d watch! But I don’t see it happening. Miley was just talking about moving back to Nashville.

  • Sarah

    A girl with no talent is going to be a talent judge!?

    • ClaireMichelle

      Just because you don’t like her music or acting doesn’t mean she has no talent.

  • Krissy

    The more names that get floated, the more desperate Simon seems, IMO. In addition to those names listed above, you also have LeAnn Rimes, Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, Katy perry has been rumored for UK version, etc…That is just so many people. It makes it seem like they want someone to take them up on it, instead of the show being selective.

    • Katie

      I totally agree. I think they are just looking for more press for the show.

  • Louigi

    I want Gwen Stefani for judge no. 4. Brit and Gwen are my dream duo!

    • Krissy

      I the Hollywood Reporter article, they say that the 4th judge needs to be a brunette. Kind of odd standards, huh?

  • Bethany

    No one on that list (other than Britney of course) sounds very appealing. Is Miley still hot right now? I forget about her, other than to remember her as “the girl who used to be Hannah Montana” and “the girl who’s dating the hot one from Hunger Games.” Forget a fourth judge, just stick with Britney :-)

  • MissAnne

    As long as she doesn’t say “like” or “ya know” for every other word, which young Miss Miley tends to do, I’ll watch.

  • I would love to see Janet next to Brit Brit but ain’t happening so… Miley or Avril are good options tough!
