Jennifer, along with Kelly Rowland & Reba McEntire, are being considered for the two vacant seats on the ‘X Factor’ judges panel! Who do YOU think should get the gigs?
With Britney Spears and L.A. Reid officially gone from The X Factor, Simon Cowell‘s on the hunt for two new judges — and according to a new reprort, the undershirt aficionado is open to some very unlikely candidates. Jennifer Love Hewitt, Reba McEntire and Kelly Rowland are all on Simon’s short list, a source tells Us Weekly.
Simon is said to be “very interested” in Jennifer, who currently stars on Lifetime’s The Client List. Though she’s best known for her iconic acting roles, Jennifer is also a successful recording artist, making her a totally viable candidate in our book. Her Client List character, Riley Parks, has even been getting into music lately!
As for Kelly, a friend tells the mag it’s a “done deal.”
And then there’s Reba. We could totally see the bubbly country star dishing out advice every week on the hit Fox series, and since her ABC comedy Malibu Country has yet to be renewed for a second season, she might have some extra time in her schedule.
HollywoodLife.com has reached out reps for all three stars and The X Factor for comment.
