Cowell is apparently keen on hiring established artists, and wants Beyonce to join a panel that may also include singer Mariah Carey, as well as returning judge L.A. Reid.
Cowell might attract Mariah Carey, he may even attract Janet Jackson, whose name was also thrown into the mix today; but he will never attract Beyonce, whose 2012 is already accounted for.
Besides being a new mother, the singer is also set to start shooting on her next film, the Clint Eastwood directed remake of “A Star is Born.”
And FOX executives quickly shot down the outrageous rumor that Beyonce had been offered $500,000,000 to join the cast. According to Peter Rice, Vice Chairman of programming for the network, “no such offer has been made.”
