Janet Jackson to become X Factor judge?

“She wants a spot on the judging panel,” a source close to Jackson told the magazine.

In addition, Janet tried to dodge questions about a possible participation as a judge on the show.

Questioned on this subject by Anderson Cooper, the 45-year-old singer juggled nervously with the answer.

Cooper asked Jackson if she is currently a part of The X Factor judging panel.

“Oh my God. (laughs) … No, I’m not a judge on The X Factor. … But that’s all I really think I should say,” she replied.

Janet could be replacing Nicole Scherzinger and/or Paula Abdul, who were dropped from the singing competition after the first season.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, singers Pink and Katy Perry are also coveted by the production.
