Will Katy Perry Join The X Factor?

Simon Cowell broke his silence on the current changes over at The X Factor USA. According to The Sun, Cowell has his eyes on one of the biggest popstars in the world- Katy Perry.

The paper reports that Katy Perry has officially been invited to join the judges panel. Simon Cowell couldn’t be more pleased if she joined The X Factor. “I worked with Katy once. I think she would be fun because she is hard — in a good way — and she’s feisty,” he said. “She would be great, in terms of experience, success… brilliant.”

Simon was quick to dismiss two other rumors currently circulating the Internet- Mariah Carey and Elton John.

“I don’t think Mariah would make that commitment,” he said. “She’s just had kids.” As for Elton, Simon says it’s not even a possibility.

“Absolutely not. He wouldn’t do it and he’d be really difficult to work with.”

Before Katy Perry was a world famous star, she sat besides Simon as a guest judge on American Idol auditions. Would you like to see Katy Perry join The X Factor?
