Since it was revealed that Britney Spears would be leaving her position as a judge on the hit show The X Factor USA, there have been a number of names linked to the empty seat. The latest name to be linked to the role of judge is Reba McEntire, who is said to have all but signed a deal.
However, it seems that these rumours are not to be believed though, as representatives for Reba have come out and denied that it is ever going to happen. They stated, "[Reba] has not been contacted by the show."
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Fox has also confirmed that a replacement for Britney has yet to be confirmed, "[This is] just speculation. No decisions have been made about the panel. Simon [Cowell] and Demi [Lovato] are the only judges confirmed on the panel so far," they explained.
Other names to be linked to the vacant judges chair on The X Factor USA include Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Cheryl Cole. As well as The X Factor USA, there have also been plenty of rumours about the judges on The X Factor UK.
