Simon Cowell is trying to do everything in his power to beat out American Idol this year and that means even offering Beyonce $100 million to be a full-time judge on X-Factor.
Now that Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul are both no longer on the show, Simon needs a new diva to spice up the show and bring in those ratings. According to Vibe.com Mariah Carey was Cowell’s original choice, but he felt Beyonce would have a bigger impact on the show because her — current stardom would “immediately give him the bounce needed to beat ‘American Idol.'”
Personally I don’t see this happening. I remember when The Dream was saying Beyonce was already talking about her next album, plus there was talk of Beyonce wanting to get in shape to perform at award shows this year. Seeing that when Beyonce is getting ready for a show, or is in the studio, you never see her unless she’s doing an interview, so I don’t see how or when she would have time to be a judge on X-Factor. Besides, that would mean Beyonce has to be seen all the time and you already know that woman likes her privacy.
I suggest he stick with Mariah on this one…
