Looks like Simon may have found a new judge for the US X Factor.
Yesterday, we learned that Cheryl Cole would NOT be getting a judge position on the show, so it comes as no surprise that Fox is now announcing that American record exec Tommy Mottola is up for a judging position.
Here's what a source at Fox had to say about it:
"Simon and Tommy have known each other for years since their days at Sony and Simon has wanted to get Tommy on board one of his shows for a long time."
"They get on extremely well and this could be the moment where they finally get on screen together. Tommy’s from the Bronx in New York, he’s tough talking, doesn’t pull any punches and will make great TV."
Cowell isn't expected to make an official announcement about US X Factor judges until next month, but it definitely seems like Mottola will be on board.
What do U think of Tommy Mottola as a judge? Who would U like to see as a judge on the show?
