Is Whitney Houston Joining ‘The X Factor’?
Is Whitney Houston joining Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid on “The X Factorâs” judges panel? According to The Hollywood Reporter, the six-time Grammy Award winner has been approached to join the show.
With Mariah Carey — Cowell’s top choice since the initial casting of the show — raising her newborn twins, it looks like Cowell has been after a whole range of superstar divas since January, including Houston, Katy Perry and Beyonce, who recently gave birth to her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.
Last month, “The X Factor” axed judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger and host Steve Jones from Fox singing competition series.
Scherzinger recently told “Access Hollywood” that she was completely committed to the show. “Well, all I know is that I gave 110 percent to that show,” she said. “I know everybody’s talking about it. They’re saying good, bad, they love me or hate me, but the one thing you can’t say is that I didn’t give it my all.”
Scherzinger and Abdul served on the judges panel alongside Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid. Scherzinger was originally tapped to co-host the series alongside Jones, but when British singer Cheryl Cole was abruptly fired as a judge, Scherzinger took her place at the table, and Jones was then left as the lone “X Factor” host.
“I loved being a part of my âX Factorâ family,” Scherzinger said. “Nothing could obviously prepare me for everything I had to go through, all the emotions and stuff, but I have no regrets.”
So far, no official replacements have been named, but that didn’t stop HuffPost TV from naming a few people we think would do well on the show, Whitney Houston included.
