Miley Cyrus Wrecking Ball

Simon Cowell certainly has high hopes for the next season of The X Factor USA – if it goes ahead, that is.

The music mogul seems to be very sure that the show will return for a fourth season and so much so, he’s already listed his dream judging panel. This post may contain some Twerking…

On his dream judging panel is none other than twerking queen, Miley Cyrus. Cowell reportedly met Miley recently and loves the fact that she has an opinion about everything.

Speaking to Mashable, the soon to be father said: “I recently met Miley Cyrus, and I really liked her. She has an opinion for sure.”

In addition to Miley, Cowell revealed that he would also like former American Idol judges Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul to star on the show as judges.

He explained his choices: “I would pick Paula and Randy from American Idol – they were my favourite judges because we had an incredible time together. It was never planned to be what it became, and it was really special”.

Rumours have circulated recently that Cowell could be returning to the British version of The X Factor next year – could this be why he wants someone with as much experience as Abdul and Jackson on the panel?

All I can say is that if the show still hemorrhages viewers next year, it’ll be FOX coming in like a wrecking ball on the show…

Elsewhere, it has today been reported that Demi Lovato will not return to her position as a judge next year.

Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, but a source close to the star seems to think that she wants to spend next year focusing on her music and she therefore won’t have time for The X Factor.

The source said: “She plans to spend next year completely focused on her music. She had a great run and a good time”.

Do you think Miley Cyrus, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson forms this said ‘dream team’?
