Simon Cowell on the Changes in 'X Factor (US)' Season 2: We're Making a New Show


Meanwhile, when commenting on the possibility of Britney Spears joining the reality show as a judge, the British producer gushes the gig would be 'a walk in the park' for the 'Womanizer' singer.

Simon Cowell has hinted that "The X Factor (US)" will be significantly different when it returns for its second season. Not only will it feature new judges and new hosts, but the show will also undergo a format change.

"We're making a new show this year," so the creator of the FOX reality series said on "The Billy Bush Show". Addressing one of the changes, he revealed, "We have to put much more emphasis on the contestants this year."

On the same occasion, Cowell once again talked about the possibility of Britney Spears and Janet Jackson becoming the new hosts of "X Factor". "This girl has got resilience," he said of the "Hold It Against Me" hitmaker. "I would think that if she's managed to sustain a family, a career, which is tough, ['X Factor' would be] a walk in the park."

Singing more praises for the 30-year-old mother of two, the former "American Idol" judge said, "I'm fascinated by [Britney.] The fact that she's one of the most talked about - not just pop stars - but people in the world today, means that you've got this star power." He added, "I would be fascinated to hear what she had to say. She's still hot, she's still having hit records and she's still controversial, there's a reason for that."

As for the sister of the late Michael Jackson, Cowell hypothetically stated, "Would she be a good judge? Yes."

Other names rumored to fill the empty spots in the judging panel are LeAnn Rimes and Kelly Rowland. The former has recently responded to the news by saying that she is "open" for the gig.
