According to TVLine, X Factor head honcho Simon Cowell is “very interested” in booking the Client List star as a judge and mentor for the singing competition show heading into its third season. Jennifer Love Hewitt is, of course, more famous for her acting chops (I’ve seen I Know What You Did Last Summer and Can’t Hardly Wait, maybe, 2000 times each.), but let us not forget her attempt at a legitimate pop career. “BareNaked” (embedded below), anyone?
Reba McEntire, who I’ve previously suggested as a replacement American Idol judge, and Kelly Rowland are also being considered.
What do you think? Does hiring Jennifer Love Hewitt make any sense? Is there any truth to this rumor? Guess what? I’m kind of on board. At this point, full-blown musicians seem too enraptured with the world of music to clearly judge performances. Standing ovations for everyone! (Sorry, Idol, you’re boring me.)
