Report: Leann Rimes Circling X Factor Gig
Leann Rimes is the latest celebrity to join the long list of talent reportedly in talks to join Fox's The X Factor.
During an interview with Extra, Rimes' husband, Eddie Cibrian, revealed that she has already met with X Factor producers. "They've been talking," he said. "I have no idea what's going on with that. I think they've been talking to a lot of people."
Report: Stacy Keibler to join X Factor
Among the other reported job candidates are Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Stacy Keibler and Darren Criss, though the latter two were for hosting gigs. Criss reportedly already declined.
The show is undergoing a massive overhaul after judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul were axed, along with host Steve Jones. Judge and executive producer Simon Cowell has since said he wants two co-hosts for next season — one male and one female, along with one very famous female singer and one very famous actress for the judging positions.
Reps for the Fox series had no comment on the Rimes reports.
Do you think Rimes would be a good fit?
