The X Factor USA creator Simon Cowell has spoken about the possibility of Britney Spears becoming the new judge on the hit Fox show. Simon admitted that he could not currently give any real information away.
Cowell explained, "You'll have to wait and see… I can't confirm or deny anything right now. The truth is, we are talking to a number of people. It changes on a daily basis, to be honest with you." However, he did admit that he had been contacted by both a very famous singer and a famous actress.
Simon then went on to reveal one of the key reasons behind the decision to replace last season’s host of The X Factor USA, Steve Jones. Cowell claimed that he felt there were too many Brits on the American show.
He added, "With the host, too many Brits on the show, if I'm being honest with you. One Brit allowed. I always wanted a boy and a girl to host the show. And I like hosts who don't kind of have a hosting background, you know. I like them when they've done acting and stuff like that. It's a different kind of dynamic."
