“X-Factor” may get a huge boost in the form of Janet Jackson.
“X-Factor” creator Simon Cowell expressed interest in Whitney Houston joining the cast before she passed away. Now, Janet Jackson’s name is being thrown into the pot. According to EW.com, “Reports have emerged that Janet Jackson may be taking one of the seats Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger vacated earlier this year. Jackson has neither issued a confirmation nor denial yet, but she is scheduled to appear on Monday’s episode of Anderson and, from the looks of a preview, doesn’t seem closed off to the possibility.”
Jackson would fill one of the spots left when Nicole Sherzinger, and Paula Abdul were let go as judges.
If Jackson took on the role of a judge on the talent show, it would be a ratings bonanza.
Is there anything behind Jackson’s coy laughter in the “Anderson” preview below?
