Pop svengali Simon Cowell revealed last week that Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie is in the running for a spot on the judging panel of the US X ‘Factor’.
With two places currently up for grabs – the third place has been filled by top record producer LA Reid – Cowell admitted that his production team for the talent show were having a problem deciding which candidates were the most suitable for the judging roles. Other possibilities include Cheryl Cole, Katy Perry, Nicole Scherzinger and Jessica Simpson.
In a recent interview, when asked if Fergie would be joining X Factor on the panel, he replied: “Her name was put forward. But like with a lot of other people we have spoken to, we have to check out everyone’s availability.”
“We are still having nightly arguments with everyone, trying to get everyone to agree. If you asked everyone involved on this show who they would like on the panel, you would have 25 different opinions.”
