Oi Simon, what's wrong with Niall, Zayn and Liam?
The One Direction lads appeared as guest mentors on the Australian version of the show in footage screened yesterday, prompting one journalist to ask Simon which member of the boyband he'd like to see as a permanant judge on The X Factor panel.
Speaking at the launch of The X Factor USA in Los Angeles, Uncle Si replied: "It would probably be between Louis and Harry," before turning to Demi Lovato and joking: "Demi, you would probably choose Niall."
We're sure Luigi and Hazman are well chuffed at Simon's choice - although personally we're not sure Louis Walsh could handle the Sass Pony, were he ever to join the UK panel.
The Niall-Demi joke did make us giggle though - it reminded us of the grilling Simon gave Demi over her friendship with Goldilocks - were he asked: 'Have you kissed him?'
We say put all five boys on a panel, and just watch the magic happen. Go on Si, DO IT.
