Simon Cowell wants Katy Perry as ‘X Factor’ judgeSeptember 1st, 2010 - 4:49 pm ICT by ANI
London, Sep 1 (ANI): ‘X Factor’ judge Simon Cowell is apparently impressed with Katy Perry’s scene-stealing stint as a judge and has offered her a pay-per-show deal.
Singer Katy appeared on the panel for the ‘X Factor’ auditions in Dublin.
“Jennifer Lopez was a serious consideration as was, weirdly, her husband Marc Anthony. Mariah Carey’s other half, Nick Cannon, is also in the frame,” the Mirror quoted a source as saying.
“But Katy really came on Simon’s radar after the Dublin auditions. She absolutely nailed it. She was a natural.
“All the recent hoo-ha forced his hand slightly and he decided to offer her the gig and gauge her response.
“Katy was thrilled, especially by the package which is said to be a 220,000 pound-a-show deal. She has agreed to meet Simon and studio bosses in the States this autumn to see if something can be done,” the source added. (ANI)
