The disney stars are rumoured to be fighting it out for the last spot on the panel - eeek!
Every so often we hear a rumour that we really, really, REALLY want to be true. And this is one of them.
According to CelebBuzz, Simon Cowell has a ‘top-secret shortlist’ of stars he’d like to join him on the hit talent show, and ‘Party in the USA’ star Miley is first choice.
Well, duh, she’d be like, totally awesome y’all.
“There have been talks with Miley” a source told the site. How very unrevealing.
The Hollywood Reporter, meanwhile, are backing ‘Give Your Heart A Break’ singer Demi Lovato for the job, saying: “The deal is not yet done and could fall apart, but sources say Lovato's team is in final negotiations for the job.”
The former Disney stars are the latest in a fairly long line of celebs tipped for the X Factor USA judging panel, after Paula Abdul and Nicole Sherzinger were axed after just one series.
Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie, Avril Lavigne, and Beyonce are also rumoured to be on Simon’s judging wish-list, while TV land seems pretty convinced that pop TITAN Britney Spears is just teeny-tiny baby steps away from signing a contract.
Securing one of the teenagers for the panel could be Simon’s way of trying to boost ratings by appealing to a younger audience – aside from the fact that they’d both be BRILLIANT of course. Oh, and just think of the outfits!
X Factor HQ remained cagey about the rumours, refusing to comment (obvs) so it looks like we’re going to have to wait until the last minute to find out who gets the job.
An executive producer of the show told The Hollywood Reporter in April: "These things always drag out to the very last minute, it's human nature. But it has to get done, so it will get done."
GRRR, but we want to know NOW. *stamps feet*
What do you think, would you like to see Miley or Demi getting their judge on?
