Nicki Minaj to judge ‘The X Factor’?March 19th, 2011 - 5:43 pm ICT by ANI
New York, March 19 (ANI): If sources are to be believed then R and B sensation Nicki Minaj is in talks with Simon Cowell to judge his upcoming Fox talent show “The X Factor.”
The Queens-bred star, famous for her wild and outlandish outfits and impossibly curvy figure, met with Cowell in Los Angeles a few weeks ago.
“Simon thinks Nicki is fantastic. She’s sassy, she looks great and she has bags of personality,” the New York Post quoted a source as saying.
“Nicki has a large following and she fits well with the ethos of the show, which plans to usher in a new generation of musical talent. ‘X Factor’ is aiming for a younger audience. Those aged 12 and over can audition, and [the English version has] launched successful artists from other genres of music than pop.
“This isn’t a done deal yet, but Nicki would be great for the show. She fits the ideal that ‘X Factor’ will be exciting, vibrant and different. And the show would also be great for her career,” the source added.(ANI)
