Chalk another one up for Simon Cowell!

According to new reports, Gwen Stefani will reportedly host X Factor’s second season for around $7 million dollars. She takes over for Steve Jones who was dropped from the cast of the breakout show in January.

Get it, girl!!

There's been a flurry of X Factor news and speculation this week, with Britney Spears and Demi Lovato (but not Miley Cyrus) replacing aging stars Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger at the judges' table.

These days, Simon racks up more celebrity notches on his bedpost than Warren Beatty!!

At least THESE girls won’t steal his wallet and laptop! LOLz!!

Apparently Simon worries star collecting is his best option to stay afloat. A source close to him revealed:

“[Cowell] is feeling the pressure and knows only a big-time, well-respected name will do if he wants anyone to flip the channel from The Voice.”


Do U think Simon’s high-stakes gamble will pay off?

    Simon should have switched that and had Gwen as a judge, much more experienced, and Demi as host.

    Re: tasha – I agree. Gwen's talent is wasted as a host.

    I think it is a lot of money. And I Ioved Paula on AXF So I'm not really into the choice. But I also thought simon wanted a duo-host.. Who will be the other host then ?
    I am also, if it's true, not really sure if Demi is a good judge..
    But I know for sure Simon knows what he is doing, and I'll always respect him.

    All those talentshow have become "who can pay the most to beat the voice" shows

    She would be great as the group mentor

    why cant he just let "the voice" have its time on top for a bit… Simon has been doing xfactor in the UK for like 10 years… its so tired. besides, theres no-one that could top Christina Aguilera as a female judge.

    Re: oh lord – yeah there is fucking ADELE.

    Plus, I know why demi got the job, the poor girl sold in her ENTIRE life 1.2 Millions albums… Simon is gonna give her 10 or 20 bucks to judge and save all the money for a great host like Gwen yeaaaye !

    No wonder why Miley didn't get the job, she sold 20+ Millions albums and is rich as fuck, she can't possibly agree for 7 Millions for an XF season when she got 15 Millions for the final season of HM, which is 14 x 22minutes !

    How the f**k are Miley or Demi judging? While an actual talent will host? He couldn't snag Rihanna, and then Katy Perry turned him down, so he wants Disney talent? This show is going downhill… Paula and Nicole actually knew talent when they heard it and Nicole is extremely talented herself.

    How about everyone stops reporting these faux offers until there's an official announcement.

    Let Gwen judge, not host! She'd be a badass mentor. Why would you give someone who has that much talent (model, actress, singer, fit as all get out, mother) host and not judge? She's an inspiration and a rolemodel and knows how to balance things. Why not get someone who's a comedian (like how Nick Cannon is on AGT) and use actual TALENT judge and be mentors? I liked the X factor last season, but I am so disappointed with the fact that now it's about beating The Voice. I understand that ratings are important, but damn, don't you have enough money Simon? Maybe I'm missing something.

    I hope Perez is wrong and Gwen's a judge and not a host. I really hope they don't have Demi Lovato judge. She has a good voice but there's something about her that's really annoying.

    Love Gwen, she should judge.

    They should get Billy Bush as the host…he is another Ryan Seacrest. Also, does not matter who the host is or who the judges are, I stopped watching because the audience was too loud and ruined the performances. The performances were over the top and over-shadowed the performers.

  14. James says – reply to this


    Gwen said in the past that she does not want to be a Judge due to all the hard decisions etc, though I REALLY DOUBT THIS WILL HAPPEN BECAUSE THE NEW NO DOUBT ALBUM WILL BE RELEASED WHEN X FACTOR IS ON…Therefore she will be touring the world etc promoting No Doubt's new album!!!

  15. 15

    Gwen is great, I will watch the show now! "I never did before"

  16. 16

    i think demi should host with a male co host and miley should be the judge
