Is Adele Joining ‘X Factor’?

If Simon Cowell has his way, Adele will be coming back across the pond next fall to be a judge on the US version of ‘X Factor’! Simon reportedly is “desperate” to get her to join the show. Simon says this about the British singer:

 “Adele is an incredible story. You wouldn’t have predicted this years ago when we were such an image-infatuated business. Here is somebody who has done everything her own way, gone back to basics and achieved this incredible success. She’s one of the most down-to-earth people you’ll meet and she hasn’t changed a bit.”

Money reportedly isn’t a problem because Simon and the producers love her so much. I have to admit, I’d love to see Adele join ‘X Factor’! Can you imagine her along with Britney Spears?

Simon Cowell Has Made “65 Marriage Proposals”

Simon Cowell said he isn’t single due to his own reluctance to get married: he just hasn’t found someone who will marry him! He said at an afternoon tea recently that he’s been trying to get married for a while.

“The truth is no-one will marry me. I must have made 65 marriage proposals and no-one’s said yes so it’s probably not going to happen.”

Simon said his relationship with former fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy is complicated, and those difficulties made him realize he’s probably not going to get married. Simon’s mother said the couple got engaged “too quick.”

“I think [the engagement] was too quick. This might give them the break they need to think it through. Marriage is a very, very big step. It’s a break at the moment. The problem with Simon is that he works so hard.”

That’s too bad. Well, if Simon is happy (and he looks happy leaving this dinner with friends Louis Walsh and Jackie St. Clair), then that’s the most important thing.

Fact Or Fiction: Is Britney Spears Joining The X Factor?

Oooh I hope this is true because this would definitely make me watch The X FactorUs Weekly is reporting that according to sources, Britney Spears has expressed an interest in joining the judging panel for the talent search show.

We know there’s lot of room for Brit now that judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger have been let go, and it has been rumoured that Simon Cowell was looking for a big name to fill the vacancy.  It was even rumoured that Cowell was trying to get Beyonce to sign on to be a judge.

I would love it if Britney Spears joined the show and I think she would be just what the show needed get more viewers.  What do you think? Would you watch Britney as a judge?

Simon Cowell & Carmen Electra Arrive To Judge ‘Britain’s Got Talent’

Simon Cowell must really love being a judge: he certainly does enough of it! He spent the fall as a judge on his new TV show, the US version of ‘X Factor,’ and now he’s working as a judge for ‘Britain’s Got Talent.’

I wonder if his demanding schedule is part of what derailed his engagement? Simon clearly enjoys vacations, but he works hard, too. I’d love to see him judging with Carmen Electra (she’s another ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge). Do you think Carmen would be like Paula Abdul?

Which Famous Face Is Leaving ‘The X-Factor?’

Although there’s no question that the debut of America’s X-Factor was a smash success, it seems that the show will be making some BIG changes for the upcoming season! While judges Paula Abdul, Simon CowellL.A. Reid, and Nicole Scherzinger are all expected to return, host Steve Jones is not.

As reported by, the British stud won’t be back for season two. Though no specific reason was given for his departure, Steve took to Twitter to confirm the news to his fans.

“I wont be hosting next seasons XFactor which is a shame but I cant complain as I’ve had a great time,” tweeted Steve on Jan. 30. “Good luck to everyone on the show.”

Even though the series isn’t slated to return until the fall, I wonder if Simon will speak out about Steve getting the boot before then. Or at least drop a hint of who the replacement host might be. Only time will tell!

Simon Cowell & Jada Pinkett Smith Are Looking For DJs

Now this is a pairing I wouldn’t have guessed was in the works! ‘X Factor’ executive producer and judge Simon Cowell is teaming up with Jada Pinkett Smith for an international reality TV show that looks for… DJs. Simon announced it on twitter:

Excited to announce new DJ show. I will NOT be judging this show. Excited to be working with @jadapsmith. Stay tuned!

A search for the next big DJ. Hmmm… it’s hard for me to appreciate this because I was never into the club scene, but it could be interesting to watch. Are you going to keep an eye out for this show?

Simon Cowell Admits He & Fiancee Are Not Together

I guess this isn’t actually surprising after the pictures of ‘X Factor’ judge Simon Cowell vacationing with another woman, but Simon has now publicly admitted that he and fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy are not together. For the most part.

“It’s quite a complicated relationship. We have had a break from each other, and we are still incredibly close. I’m vulnerable. It’s not on, it’s not off, it’s somewhere in the middle. I don’t know if I will ever get married, but I am happy.”

Hmmm… Well, it’s better to slow down rather than push through with a wedding and getting married if you aren’t sure about the relationship, don’t you think?
