Simon Cowell Continues To Drop Hints On Who Will Be Judging America's X Factor

| Filed under: TV NewsJessica SimpsonMariah CareyPaula AbdulElton JohnNicole ScherzingerSimon CowellKaty PerryX Factor


All this waiting in suspense is AGONY! Just tell us who they are already, you crazy Brit!!!

Simon Cowell continues to be coy when asked about who he has selected to join him at the judges table of the American installment of The X Factor. There are so many names flying around that it might be hard to keep track, but let's see if we can pin this down a bit from what Simon told sources recently.

First of all, sorry, no Katy Perry or Elton John. We kind of figured this, but Simon confirmed it, saying that Katy is too busy and that Elton is too "grumpy." Uh, excuse you?! Check yourself before you wreck yourself. That's still Sir Elton you're talking about there.

Moving on - as far as the shortlist of judges stands at the moment, top contenders include former X Factor judging-fave Nicole Scherzinger, Mariah Carey, George Michael and Simon's former Idol cohort, Paula Abdul. Of the latter, Simon explained:

"We've taken it down to a smaller group of people and she's in that panel. But, you know, it's more than me who makes the decision."

Okay, so what about the rumored decision that Jessica Simpson is a definite?

On that, he wouldn't say, but he did reveal that he had recently met with "somebody who I've never met before in my life, who I just loved."

Could this new mystery person be the next name on the shortlist?

And what about Cheryl??? Is she out? Is she in?

We're going to need some answers soon, Simon, or we might just BURST! Hurry up and just pick people already!!!

    fish franks, fish tacos, fish jumblya, fish stix, fish lasagna, fish steam, fish stew, fish pork, fish turnovers, deep fried fish, fish jewy, fish everlasting lol

  2. 2

    Mariah is the only one with REAL talent out of all those people! GO MARIAH!

  3. 3

    I ain't going to watch but if the show is looking for train wreck, Jessica Simpson is the way to go.

    I agree with CM, Mariah is the best talent out of all of them. (George Michael has talent)

  4. 4

    Mariah is going to be a mother of twins by the time this comes out. She is not going to do it.

  5. 5

    Well, it's an open secret that Nicole Scherzinger is getting a spot. That's been decided for a while now. It's the other 2 spots that are still in limbo… I wonder…

  6. 6

    Don't be too quick to think Nicole is in there. She offers little actually then looks & body.
    Don't be too quick to throw Jess to the wolves either. Anyone that can amass a billion dollar empire in celebrity & be the first to do it obviously has mass appeal. You may not like her but she is real & genuine & has some excellent success in the past. She knows her music big time. Simon is a smart buisness man & you can bet he is intrigued by Jessica.
    Jess can be goofy & fun & lighthearted something that is also needed on this panel to lighten the tension. She would be an absolute awesome pick.
