Will Janet Jackson Join 'The X-Factor?'

| by

There have been rumors floating around the web about who will replace the X Factor judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, after they were fired by Simon Cowell in January.

One of those seats may be filled by Janet Jackson.  The 45-year-old singer was put on the spot by Anderson Cooper on his show, which will air on Monday.  The talk show host asked Jackson about becoming a judge on the talent show.  Janet reacted by laughing, then said,

“No I’m not a judge on The X Factor.” Cooper then responded ”You’re not currently a judge on The X Factor.”

Jackson responded to his last question by quietly stating,

“No, I am not, but that’s all I really think I should say.”

Coopers response was,

“Intriguing, I will say, Intriguing.”

Another singer that has been linked to possibly judging on The X Factor was Beyonce, with $500,000 pay check.

Do you think Janet and Beyonce will fill the  empty chairs?  How do you think they would do??
