Whitney Houston: X Factor Judge?

Not twenty four hours after getting into a physical altercation with season one X Factor finalist Stacy Francis, do we hear that singer Whitney Houston is rumored to have been approached by show creator Simon Cowell to join the cast.

As has been well reported, Cowell cleaned house last week, firing host Steve Jones and judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger. Since then names like Beyonce and Mariah Carey have been floating around, Cowell however shot down both options in an interview earlier this week.

The Hollywood Reporter reached out to Fox, Cowell and Houston’s reps but got no response.

Should Whitney take the gig (if it has actually even been offered), she would be an instant hit. Not only would viewers tune in, but it could be just the vehicle the singer needs to launch her own comeback.


  1. She’d be a good fit. Plus she’s worked with LA Reid int he past. She’s more credible than Paula and Nicole combined and widely recognizable. Too bad her vocals aren’t where they used to be, but I think a lot of new singers would love the chance to sing for her.

  2. I must say Sista has a very positive site not none for controversy. however negative things happen sometime, she was just reporting the story the way it happen. Whitney was love by millions myself as one R.I.P.
    Ray-J and Whitney seem fun of each others i didn’t care for her with him the path he’s on lately. My prayers goes out to all may God comforts their hearts.
