Hmmm, better be careful sitting next to Simon, Britters – we all know what happened with a certain Ms. Minogue. *cough*

Brit is rumoured to being paid £9.4 million (that’s 15 million dollars!) for her role on the talent show – which is silly really, because we would have done it for free.

Disney star Demi Lovato is hotly tipped for the one spare seat still left at the judging table – after she told MTV News that the job would be a “dream come true.”
