Rihanna Set To Guest Judge X Factor USA 2011
Things looked all set for Mariah Carey to be a guest judge on X Factor 2011, but that all changed when Hurricane Irene wrecked havoc on those plans. Simon Cowell was forced to find someone closer to LA and it looks like he came up with an even bigger star: Rihanna.
The latest X Factor rumor is that chart-topper Rihanna will guest judge on the show’s inaugural U.S. season. According to TMZ, the singer enjoyed her U.K. X Factor finale performance so much, that she — and series creator/star Simon Cowell — wants seconds.
Rihanna’s reps won’t confirm a booking.
Seems like her reps could deny the booking if they wanted, but we’ll know before too long with X Factor USA premiering in just a few more days. Lets hope Rihanna makes the cut so she can add some fresh, young energy to the show.
