Janet Jackson helped Anderson Cooper celebrate the 100th episode of his talk show “Anderson”. While on the show Janet skirted around the rumor of her joining the X Factor judging panel.
As we reported over a week ago, singers Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Pink were also on the short list of potential judges to replace fired panelists Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.
When asked about the rumor, Janet, totally tongue tied and smiling from ear to ear, responded: “Oh my God. No, I’m not a judge on The X Factor.”
Too smart to stop there, Anderson pressed Miss Jackson a bit more. “You’re not currently a judge on The X Factor,” to which the R&B superstar replied, “No, I am not. But that’s all I really think I should say.”
Simon Cowell heightened the excitement, tweeting “We Have a few surprises to announce soon. This is getting interesting.”
Stay tuned for more info and the announcement about X-Factor coming soon.
