Simon Cowell is looking for a judge to add to the X-Factor UK panel alongside Cheryl Cole and Louis Walsh. Source told NOW that he wants Miley Cyrus: ‘Simon’s convinced she’d be great and would bring a youthful presence to the pane. He thinks she’s current, edgy and fearless, everything a great popstar should be.”‘
However, a source told Daily Star: ‘This year is an important one for The X Factor. Simon can’t be complacent and has to come back with a real A Team. Rihanna would be a shock selection because she is not an obvious choice for a family show, but that’s what he wants.’
UPDATE: Miley’s people told Daily Mail: ‘Simon has more chance of getting Elvis or Gandhi as a judge’. Source: ‘There have been no talks with Miley. She is currently on a world tour in the US. The Bangerz tour comes to the UK in May. Miley is one of the biggest artists in the world, she has no intention of going to be a judge on a show. It is the last thing on her mind.
Miley is having the time of her life. Making music and performing is what she cares about. She has been offered the role of judge on lots of talent shows in the States in the past but she’s never been interested.’
