Simon Cowell has supposedely offered Beyoncé a massive $500million to be a judge on The X Factor USA. According to Media Takeout, Simon Cowell is ‘desperate’ to secure Beyoncé in an effort to boost the show’s ratings, following the exit of judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.
Beyoncé joins the list of potential new X-Factor USA judges, with the likes of Mariah Carey, Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj all tipped to be other alternatives. A source told Media Takeout “Simon wants a big name female star on the panel. He claims Mariah Carey is good, but she’s not that hot today. He wants Beyoncé because that would immediately give him the bounce needed to beat American Idol.” Will Simon manage to entice Beyoncé in at that cost? We’ll have to wait and see!
