Avril Lavigne To Judge On The X Factor USA?

Avril Lavigne is the latest singer to be rumored to be joining the ranks of judges on the U.S. version of The X Factor. After the show’s first season, head honcho Simon Cowell fired Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and host Steve Jones. Now, naturally, he has to find replacements for the three axed people. Reportedly, he’s looking to replace Steve with two co-hosts, one male and one female.

Whitney Houston was rumored to have been considered for a judging position, prior to her untimely death. Also rumored to be in talks are Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey and now Avril Lavigne.

Remember, L.A. Reid discovered Avril back in 2000, so this transition may come naturally for all involved. Also, she performed alongside Chris Rene on the show’s season one finale.

Avril might actually be a good choice for the job considering the fact that she had a record deal with Arista by the time she was 16-years-old. Perhaps she would make a great mentor — just as long as they don’t stick her with the groups. That, I believe, was Paula’s failing on the show, which at the end, left her with no one vying for the top prize.

What do you think of the prospect of Avril signing on to do the show? Would you watch?
