Because Why Not? Little J Up For X Factor Hosting Gig!

And the shortlist just keeps getting stranger and stranger…

We reported earlier in the week that Simon Cowell was considering Enrique Iglesias as a host for the upcoming US edition of X Factor, but it looks as though if that doesn't work, he's heading to the Upper East Side to try and secure none other than Little J herself, Taylor Momsen, for the job!

Seriously!

Sources close to the production have revealed that the show's producers think that The Pretty Reckless singer is perfect because she is "young, hip, and edgy."

Yeah…but like we said about Enrique - does she have any experience hosting a show like this? And we may be the only ones who still think this, but we'd be bummed if she didn't return to Gossip Girl at some point!

Don't get it twisted - we think she'd do just fine - we just are a little concerned with how all over the place these casting announcements seem to be!

Time to buckle down and make some decisions, guys!

What do U think?? Who should host/judge X Factor??

    You're so off Perez, Taylor would be awesome for it, she's one of the few most talented new artists. Go Taylor!



  2. 2

    You are no more qualified to judge these types of shows than she is so stop asking!!! At least she is a musician.



  3. 3

    Casting couch?



  4. 4

    The show is going to suck anyways their are to many shows like this so getting tired of this crap!! By the way I think Bret Micheals should!!

    But your beloved cheryl didn't have any experience hosting x factor and she got a job on the uk one , so you quite clearly don't need any experience or talent yourself to get a place on these shows because at the end of the day the show is scripted and judges will be told what to say.

    please read ben elton chart throb to get an insight into how set up these shows are

    The X Factor is clearly a show about Judges, Hosts and Ego. I have an idea, why not have 30 judges, 10 hosts and bring Perez on the show for season one to judge the judges and hosts. No contestants at all. Perez can comment on there clothes, there hair, there pets, there diet, there exercise plan and who they are sleeping with and give them grades as such and have america vote, it will truly be the blind leading the blind. Each week the winning judge advances to the next show and by the end of the first season the panel and hosts will be in place for season two. Cheryl Cole is going to be added to the judge panel on american idol next season and X factor will fade away.

    So , your beloved cheryl cole didnt have any experience hosting a "talent show" and she was cast for hosting uk x factor which goes to show you don't even need any talent because you know x factor is scripted and set up because it at the end of a day is an entertainment show not a talent show.

    I advise people to read Ben elton - chart throb , it is a great insight to how set up and how manipulated the public are into wasting their money voting for their favorite singer

    they're talking about her for hosting not judging!! you stupid ppl :P
    to be a host you need to be super organised, funy, witty, quick and be able to cope if anything goes wrong on live tv! they basically hold the whole show together on air!
    personally i think taylor would be BRUTAL at this!!
    i know americans don't know him, but they could get to know him!
    DERMOT O'LEARY ALL THE WAY!!

    yeah coz a 17 year old totally has the musical experience and knowledge to judge other people. this just further proves that simon cowell is money grabbing whore who doesnt know shit about music. the music industry is dead is cowell and momsen are concerned



  10. 10

    i skim read it and was certain i read somewhere else she was going to be a judge , my bad.
    dermot would be great though :D



  11. 11

    She does have a nice voice.



  12. 12

    Re: tellitlikeitis67 – haha, funny.



  13. 13

    the way she dresses the only thing she should be judging is the strippers down at the local strip joint.



  14. 14

    I was thinking of a music veteran hosting it. Maybe somebody like Enrique's father Julio, Phil Collins, Sir Tom Jones (Sir Tom did a cover of Hoobastank's The Reason that is on YouTube), Sir Elton John, Joey Fatone (he hosted NBC's The Singing Bee), Phil Collins, Cher, Celine Dion, Reba McIntyre, Bette Midler, Cindi Lauper, Gloria Estefan, or maybe having Donny and Marie Osmond co-hosting it. The only non musicians that would be qualified would be original American Top 40 host and the voice of Shaggy on Scooby-Doo, Casey Kasem. He is known for his AT40 "God d**n death dedication, f***ing dog dying" rant.

    fuk, im startin to hate this show already and havent even watched it yet !

    i cant stand this dum little kunt



  16. 16

    She would never do it. It would mean she reads off a teleprompter and actually put on clothes. Sorry but they dont need a 17 year old girl hosting a show..even if its only being hyped up more than it should.



  17. 17

    Ol' raccoon eyes…



  18. 18

    But…… she's oh so hardcore….. :S

    Nobody cares about how the show goes or talent, everybody is interested only in judges in presenters!
