Could Nicki Minaj Be Joining L.A. Reid On Simon Cowell's "X-Factor?"

​ ​ ​ ​

So now that we announced LA Reid gave DEF JAM the Deuces, we have to wonder who else might join him on Simon Cowell's "X-Factor."  Get the deets on who may be heading to primetime inside...

 

Now that he has landed music honcho LA Reid as one of his judges for "X-Factor," we hear that Simon Cowell has a long list of celebs and music execs to possibly fill 3 more judge positions in hopes they will make his show jump off just like "American Idol."

One of the wild card selections is Nicki Minaj.  Nicki hasn't been in the game long enough to be considered an expert by any means, but her demographic is the show's target audience and we could count on her to be quirky and fun.  And though LA Reid holds it down in the area of expertise, some sources say Simon had been considering Tommy Mottola too. 

Other pop stars--well, semi-pop star--like Pussycat Dolls leader Nicole Scherzinger have been mentioned, along with British pop star Cheryl Cole.  And at various times, we've even heard Jessica Simpson brought up.  But my personal choice isn't much of a shocker...Paula Abdul.  AND her red cup.  Paula's CBS show was cancelled and I would love to see her with a new gig.  And everyone loves her and Simon together.   I hope her agent starts working that ish ASAP.

The show is searching for undiscovered talent 12 years old or over both solo artists and vocal groups who are willing to brave the panel for a chance to win a $5 million recording contract with Syco/Sony Music.

Auditions for the highly anticipated singing competition THE X FACTOR are set to begin on Sunday, March 27 in Los Angeles at the L.A. Sports Arena. The search for the next global superstar will continue in Miami, FL, on Thursday, April 7; Newark, NJ, on Thursday, April 14; Seattle, WA, on Wednesday, April 20; Chicago, IL, on Wednesday, April 27; and Dallas, TX, on Thursday, May 26.

So...who are your picks for judges?

Nicki Minaj don't need to go

Nicki Minaj don't need to go on the X-Factor because her career is now taking off! Why lower yourself to do something like that show at this stage of the game? When her career becomes non-existent like Jennifer Lopez, then I could see her doing that show. Nicole and the other girl can do the show because they don't have a career that is doing well.

Nicole S was a guest judge in

Nicole S was a guest judge in the u.k x factor and she was actually good, she may not be that successful artist by herself but she is a good performer. Nickki hasn't been around long enough and Cheryl Cole is a pretty face. So many folks want to enter music competitions, isn't that an over saturated market?

All Nicki Minaj would do is

All Nicki Minaj would do is tell everybody they sound great. I think even though she has a strong fan base, she's too new in the mainstream game to go on there and be blunt and honest so she'll be all sweet and nice so that she won't rub any viewers or audience members the wrong way. And telling everybody that they sound great or that they like them is BORING. Nicki wouldn't be a good choice for this gig... But maybe having Simon and LA Reid would balance things out, but I dunno about that one...
