Whitney Houston Approached for Seat on 'X Factor' Judges Panel (Exclusive)
UPDATED: Sources tell THR that the pop
superstar has been approached for one of the spots vacated by departed
judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.
Whitney Houston could be staging another career comeback with a coveted seat next to Simon Cowell on The X Factor’s judges panel, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.
The pop diva, who performed on the U.K. version of The X Factor in October 2009, is said to have been approached to join the Fox talent series, according to a source close to the show.
Mariah Carey has remained under consideration since
the initial casting of the show, though Cowell has gone on record with
assumptions that the singer is too busy with her family life to
participate. Rumors of a $100 million Beyonce offer, however, are just that -- rumors. Cowell was quick to shoot down the report in a recent interview.
