Rumor is that Ne-Yo maybe joining The X Factor as a judge. He told Extra, “I think it would be a great, great thing, I don’t want to talk to much about it, because I don’t want to get in no trouble… conversations have been had, but that’s about it. If it happens, I’d be more then willing to do so. I feel like I’ve been around long enough to have some vital information for someone on the way up, definitely.”
Here’s how I feel about The X Factor–Simon needs to make it about the talent and not about the judges. L.A. Reid not included in that statement because he was a great fit and belonged on that judges’ table. But I’m done with all the stunt casting. Ne-Yo isn’t of Britney Spears caliber, and has been around the block, so it’s not a bad choice, but I still think they can do better. My opinion? They need another L.A. Reid type in that chair.
Who do you think should judge?
