Jessica Simpson Is Frontrunner To Judge U.S. The X Factor

Jessica Simpson Frontrunner To Judge

Looks like Jessica Simpson is in the lead to be a judge on the US version of the X Factor, according to inside sources!

What they're saying is this:

"There [are] loads of conversations happening at the moment," says the source. "No one has been offered a judging role yet as new names keep coming forward who want the role, but there are some frontrunners and it's fair to say Jessica is one of them. She's very keen."

We DEF say she'd be great for the spot!

She has the experience and talent to make the right kind of choices!

So the question is this: does she have the right stuff to take on and mentor her pick??

The show isn't just about a singing competition and having the contestants being all on their lonesome! The judges will have to choose specific favorites and then shape them into a powerhouse to win the competition!

That's quite the tall order!

We do know ONE person however that's up to the task…


Come on, Simon! Let's do this!!


Thoughts on JSim being a judge??

    sorry but she is a TERRIBLE singer, she has no right to judge anyone else

  2. 2

    Who the fuck could you mentor???? My god, your a joke, the poor fucker that would get stuck with you might as well just concede on the spot.

  3. 3

    I don't know…. Jess honestly doesn't have too much musical ability herself. At least in my opinion, so I don't know why they would even be considering her.

  4. 4

    You still mention that you should be a judge. Lawl my god you're so desperate.

  5. 5

    No to Simpson
    No to Perez

  6. 6

    Jess would be great in this role!
    While I like to read your comments perez, I really think you are delusional about your abilities to be a judge on this show. You cannot sing, and so it does not make sense that you can comment on other's singing ability!
    Try being a fashion judge, you would have more success!

    I guess she needs the money to keep her fugly fiance. Never thought she was much of a singer.

  9. 9

    this bimbo can barely stand up straight, now she's going to judge people? Hilarious. Train wreck TV.

    And just stop it Mario, nobody is going to put your ugly face on TV. America doesn't like u moron.

  10. 10

    I think she would be good for it. She overdoes it like Christina does when it comes to singing, but at least she can sing.

    I'm pretty certain management have some kind of nebulous rubrick for the type of judge they want. It will be heavily weighed towards whoever will bring in the most viewers, but must also be someone musically credible and somewhat stable.

  12. 12

    Actually she doesn't need the money. I heard somewhere that her line of clothes etc. at Macy's was predicted to make several hundred million this year. I can't believe it myself but if it's true I hardly think she is doing this for the $$. I personally don't like her voice but she can sing better than me (that's not saying much).

  13. 13

    X factor is fuckin stupid..it lets nobody's and shitty talents be judges..wtf???

  14. 14

    Sorry Perez. You are a great blogger, and have a passion for finding new music - which is awesome. You also have put together a few good concerts. But you aren't the right choice at all to judge or to mentor for this show. Jessica has years of experience in the biz and recorded hit songs, and is a good performer. She also has a ton of charisma and is a little wacky - like Paula Adbul.

  15. 15

    Re: @v@ – um she can't fucken sing.

  16. 16

    Please spare us from your lack of talent.
    Even JLo has more singing ability (I think)…she at least looks like a movie star, and is still hot.
    You're a drunk mess and should be rockin' it, like Gwen Stefani still does. She always looks great.
    BTW, don't marry this dude.

  17. 17

    Charlie Sheen would fucking be better than this half-ass bimbo

  18. 18

    Great, a DUMBER version of Paula Abdul. Is that even possible?

  19. 19

    dude, seriously, u chose that forgettable dude on american idol that you pimped out so much. he sucked. so why would you be better?

  20. 20

    She's just the right type of fake plastic star to mold someone into being good a karaoke!! Google Search keywords "The Media Jerk" to read heartless criticism of the day's biggest celebrity news stories!!

  21. 21

    If you have ever seen Jessica Simpson sing she looks like the old rock guy Joe Cocker. She can carry a tune but that's about it.
    As far as you being a judge Perez, I have one word for you SLIMMY

  22. 22

    I honestly don't see this happening. I like Jess, and I do believe she has the talent to judge the show… I just don't think she would want to, especially after Simon Cowell completely insulted her on American Idol. I would tell him to shove it up his ass. Even though i like Simon too, lol.

  23. 23

    I'm confused on why they would want a person with no talent to host a talent show?

  24. 24

    She would not work on a show like the x factor. At the end of the day the judges don't need to have any vocal talent it is a show where they need experience in the business and an instinct on someones potential to be a successful artist in the industry today. Obviously a lot of people here in the States commenting on the judge possibilities have not taken some time to watch some of the UK version to understand how the show works. She has obviously not put out a hit in years! Even though she may be unknown in the US, Cheryl Cole would work on this show because not only does she have experience on mentoring from being on the UK version, but she has also been able to remain relevant for close to 10 years in the UK very successfully. Mind you she has yet to crack America, this could be her opportunity. I'm personally not a huge Cole fan but I'm merely stating the facts. She does have a certain charisma that draws you in, and is relatively down to earth, and well obviously has been voted world's sexiest women two years in a row. Even taylor swift would be a better judge than j.simp at least she's relevant today.

  25. 25

    Awful choice! She attempts to sound like she has a big Christina/Beyonce voice but she's actually a far worse vocalist then Britney or Taylor Swift. WTF is Simon Cowell thinking if he picks her! Christina, Beyonce, Mary J Blige or Alicia Keys would be amazing choices.

  26. 26

    I think it would be fabulous for Jessica. I think it would confirm this is no dumb blonde. Many will be shocked at her abilities if they take there nose out of there ass & pay attention.

    Perez sometimes I wonder about you & sometimes I just smile at you. You just can't decide if you love or hate Jess. You play the fence well with her.

    Give her a shot people. You maybe surprised & be entertained & have a lot of fun with a great gal that has humour & compassion & knows of what she speaks & the highs & lows of the buisness

    I don't think she'd be very good. Wow, first Xtina, now Jessica…it seems that some of the 90s stars are becoming the has-beens now…makes me feel old lol. I hope Xtina can have a comeback, however. Jessica I never cared for all that much in the first place.

  29. 29

    yes love her!

  30. 30

    does this idiot even know what a judge is ? and she certainly can't sing.Re: @v@ – what's a rubrick ? not in the dictionary

  31. 31

    it's a safe bet that this idiot can't even spell judge, nor can she sing. so why is she a candidate? what a sign of desperation on the network's part. even paula abdul had a couple of functioning brain cells, but this moron… not so much. might make for some good laughs

  32. 32

    she always looks confuse.

  33. 33

    Your ship has come and gone. You will NEVER be any more famous than you already were… in 2008. Sorry dude. Jessica Simpson can't do it either. She has a voice, but that's where her talent ends.

  34. 7tizz says – reply to this


    She actually has a decent singing voice and she's been in the buisness for a while now. She has more credibility than that Chezra person Mario keeps oddly fawning over. I say, why not? They let Paula Abdul do it and she could barely sing.

  35. 35

    She would be a better choice then Cheryl Cole!

  36. ONIT says – reply to this


    Hell, NO, pleeeeaaaase.

  37. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: ms trudy – It's rubric. No 'k' but rubrike in middle english. A rubrics expert defines a rubric as 'a scoring tool that lists the criteria for a piece of work or what counts.' I don't care for her voice either, but plenty of others did if you check out her past charting on wiki. Imagine the comments she might come out with if chicken of the sea is any indication.

  38. 38

    Right a no talent bloated third rate singer is going to judge people who can actually carry a tune. How much is papa Joe paying Cowell for this gig? He should have pimped out Ashley now that she's a single mom.

  39. 39

    Re: @v@ – Have you been playing with your Rubricks Cube again? In any event, irrespective of her vocal abilities (limited) I agree that people find her intriguing. When she tried country, people did attend her concerts - until the wheels fell off.

  40. 40

    boy wut a moron move that would be. the only show she should judge is biggest loser.

  41. 41

    Jessica Simpson is a joke. X Factor will be a joke with Jessica Simpson on it. I wouldn't be able to take 5 minutes of Jessica Simpson speaking. Jessica Simpson has no muisical ability, and she is a terrible singer. The only talent Jessica has is selling her name to a clothing co., and showing off her ta tas.
