Rumor has it that Rihanna has been in negotiations to take one of the vacant judging spots on the upcoming second season of The X Factor USA.
Simon Cowell made headlines when he fired Steve Jones, Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger and quickly put out a call for new talent for the second season of the show.
Since, it’s been rumored that Britney Spears, Whitney Houston, Katy Perry, Janet Jackson, Fergie and a number of others were taking the open spots. Now, we’re hearing that Rihanna may want the job — after she helped mentor the contestants on the first season.
An insider said, “The X Factor is still on the hunt for the new judges, and Rihanna has become the latest star mentioned as a possible candidate.”
Do you think Rihanna would be a good fit for the show as a judge? If not, who would you want to see sitting next to Simon and L.A. Reid at the judge’s table?
