Simon Cowell Seeking Rihanna and Chris Brown For The X Factor?
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 12.16.2012



Simon Cowell is looking to up the star power on The X Factor again. The Sun reports that Cowell has targeted Rihanna as someone he wants to sign for a judging gig on either the US or UK version of the show next year. The news comes after L.A. Reid has announced that he is leaving the US version and both shows have lagged in the ratings, with the UK numbers at a six-year low and the US version playing third fiddle being The Voice and American Idol.

"Simon is a huge admirer of Rihanna and knows she's star quality," said a source close to the show. "As well as bringing an aura to the panel thanks to her current standing in music, she is also feisty and will make great TV. Simon loves these sort of characters."

Interestingly, the source also says that Cowell is considering Rihanna's ex/maybe-current boyfriend Chris Brown for the US version, noting, "The US X Factor has improved on the first season's ratings but it's got some way to go to reach Simon's expectations. Adding Chris to the panel will certainly create a talking point."
