HollywoodLife.com has learned exclusively that ‘X Factor’ producers want Rihanna on the panel — and Britney Spears is out of the running.

Could Rihanna find herself sitting pretty next to Simon Cowell this fall? An insider at The X Factor tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that negotiations have started for the “Birthday Cake” singer to be added to the show’s illustrious panel — which is pretty vacant after Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger were fired from the show.

Our source adds that discussions for Britney Spears to also join the panel are “pretty much dead.” But that’s OK — We need Britney to focus on making new music!

What do YOU think? Would Rihanna make a great addition to The X Factor panel?
