Simon Cowell Wants Lady Gaga for ‘X Factor’

Looks like Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato can finally agree on something (or someone): Lady Gaga!

The brutally honest Brit is reported to be eyeing Mother Monster for a spot on his judging panel now that L.A. Reid and Britney Spears have made their exits from the ‘X Factor‘ stage.

Hollywood Life reports that Gaga’s recent debilitating hip injury is actually adding to her appeal. “Now that she is injured and is unable to tour, the first thing Simon thought was to get her for the show,” an ‘X Factor’ source said. “She has time on her hands, which was once not available. Simon is reaching out to her in full force and looking to do anything he can for her to be a judge.”

Lovato had previously said she’d love to work alongside the ‘Born This Way’ songstress. “I would love to see Lady Gaga,” she said. “I don’t know if that is possible or not.”

Now that Gaga can’t tour, it may be more possible now than it was before — because she’ll still be able to promote ‘ARTPOP’ via her television appearances even if she can’t hit the road the way she wants to. And chances are she’ll garner more ratings than another possible judge, Cheryl Cole.
