He shouldn't just be flattered! He should be having them sign the dotted line!
Simon Cowell is once again discussing the upcoming cast changes for his second season of X Factor, and while confirming that they are looking for two ladies to fill the open spots on the judges panel and a man and woman as co-hosts, he's keeping quiet about potential replacements Janet Jackson and Britney Spears, who have both expressed interest in the reality competition!
"I couldn't comment on it. Are we flattered that there could be interest? Yes. Other than that, there's going to be a lot of twists and turns over the next few weeks and a lot of things we're going to announce."
And on the hosts:
"It's almost impossible to have one person doing this hosting job. You've got so much information now on telephone lines, the integrations of the sponsors — [the hosts are] like newscasters now. I think you can see a very different chemistry with two people. I always wanted a boy and a girl to host the show. I think that's definitely going to happen now. I think we've learned how we can make the show better. I like the fact that it's got very competitive now [against The Voice and American Idol]. It's kind of exciting."
Ha! We think that they only person getting super competitive over the other singing competitions is you, Simon!
But that's okay! We love a good challenge - and we would LOVE Brit Brit and Janet as judges on X Factor!
How about U?!
