Before the untimely death of Whitney Houston, news surfaced that Whitney Houston was being eyed to be a possible judge on 'X Factor.' Apparently, the reports were true as Simon Cowell confirmed on Saturday (Feb. 11) with CNN's Piers Morgan that Houston was in consideration to be on the Fox reality competition show.
Simon Cowell is not satisfied with having helped discover huge pop stars like Kelly Clarkson. The former 'American Idol' judge and current 'X Factor' guru, whose protégé Melanie Amaro won the whole shebang, is shifting his attention and talent-finding GPS to the electronic music scene.
Cowell hopes to find the world's best DJ via a new reality competition show. These shows are in Cowell's wheelhouse, and he's mining the dance scene in 2012.
'X Factor' judges Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul have an obvious love-hate relationship. They are always seated next to one another on the show's panel, which make you wonder if they are playing footsie underneath. They are constantly at each other's throats. They bicker incessantly. The tension between them is so thick you could chop it with a machete. But is it that kinda of tension? Oh you bet, if you ask Cowell.
Simon Cowell is a media mogul, which makes him a media magnet, as well. He sees no less than 500 tabloid items printed about him and his entertainment properties in a single year. His 'X Factor' show antics and his love life are often the topics of the press and publicity surrounding the acid-tongued judge. Simon Cowell, Inc. is a well-oiled machine, a brand and a corporation, and as the saying goes, behind every good man is an even better woman.
