X FACTOR: Janet Jackson’s In Talks To Be A Judge!

Janet Jackson is in talks to join The X Factor as a judge, following the departure of Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.

The talks are in the preliminary stages, as Simon Cowell meets with show execs this week to discuss replacements, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

On Thursday, Janet was coy about joining the show when Anderson Cooper asked her about it. “Oh my God,” she said laughing. “No, I’m not a judge on The X Factor.”

“You’re not currently a judge on The X Factor,” responded Anderson.

“No, I am not,” Janet said. “But that’s all I really think I should say.”

Cowell is also reportedly also interested in Pink and Katy Perry as possible judges.
