Is Miley Cyrus Going to Be A Judge on X Factor Too?

It’s possible, but I want to talk about this picture real quick before we get into it. I don’t get the thought process when celebrities do this type of thing, do you? I’m sure it would absolutely suck to get your picture taken every single place that you go (even though, you know, that’s not a surprise when you pursue this particular profession), but does Miley not realize that creeping around while pulling a coat up over her head doesn’t exactly read as inconspicuous? Did she go “I know, I’ll put on these sunglasses and place the collar of my jacket around my forehead, and no one will pay attention to me then!” Even if she wasn’t in Hollywood, if she was running around like this, she’d get noticed.

But enough about Miley and her silly pictures. Let’s talk about the rumors that Miley is in the running to be a judge on X Factor, all right?

Miley Cyrus is being eyed as a potential fourth judge on Fox’s X Factor, Celebuzz has exclusively learned.

The ‘Party in the USA’ pop star is on Simon Cowell‘s top-secret shortlist that also includes Fergie, Avril Lavigne and Demi Lovato, an insider confirmed.

“There have been talks with Miley,” the source revealed.

Whilst Britney Spears has not yet inked her deal, it’s believed to be inevitable that she will join Cowell and fellow judge L.A. Reid, the chairman of Epic Records, in a deal worth up to $15 million, the source added.

“Britney’s deal is not done, it’s close, but we are not that far ahead to be making a formal announcement,” a source told Celebuzz.

Last week, in a move believed to be tied to Spears’ new X Factor gig, a Los Angeles judge made the ‘Toxic’ singer’s fiancé, Jason Trawick, a co-conservator, allowing him to sign off on decisions related to her career.

19-year-old Cyrus’ link to the vacant role comes as Cowell seeks to replace Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul, who he fired after last season.

An X Factor spokesperson refused to confirm talks with any of the stars when contacted.

Yes. If Britney Spears does finally sign on to be a judge, then the next season of X Factor will be unstoppable. Could you imagine Britney and Miley interacting with each other? It would be so much gold, it really would. They could joke about their Southern roots and do bong hits together, and … no, that’s it. That’s all I want to see. They’d probably save the “Britney and Miley Share a Bong” bit for the finale, right? Whatever, it’d be so worth the wait.

  • I think they’d be better suited to find a judge that can actually SING without autotune. I mean, Xfactor is a singing contest, right? While both Miley and Britney are great performers – that’s all they are. PERFORMERS. How can they judge a true voice talent?

    • So people who aren’t excellent singers can’t judge what’s good and what’s bad singing? I’m not a great singer, but I can sure as hell tell the difference between a Whitney Houston and a Ke$ha. Most people can, I think.

      • @Harriet Meadow above (I hate the fact that when I hit “reply” not, it takes me to an ad I have to skip…only to never take me to the reply page): Isn’t the show about fostering people’s singing talent? How can someone foster it and offer advice if they are not good at it? It’s sort of like Stephanie Myers being an English teacher when she can barely write a book…and that actually happened.

      • I don’t know how much of a role they actually play in coaching the contestants, though, other than saying what they think about the singing, which, to be fair, anyone can do. Maybe I’m wrong – I haven’t really seen the show; I just assumed it was like American Idol and the judges’ role is to make lame comments like “that was great” or “that was too pitchy.” At any rate, they’re certainly not playing the role of voice teachers!
