Rihanna - Simon Cowell to Offer Spot on X Factor Panel to Rihanna

Ratings have been falling for the X Factor, with this season’s closing episodes pulling in the lowest numbers yet, but apparently Simon Cowell has a plan up his sleeves.

The show’s revamp will come in the form of a brand new judge – Rihanna herself. Or so Cowell hopes. The producer is planning to reach out to the Caribbean beauty after Christmas break, the Sun reports. Apparently, Cowell is so eager to have Rihanna on the panel, that he will offer her a choice of spot either on the UK or US version.

This would come as a welcome breath of fresh air for the show, as ratings for the X Factor UK have been consistently low ever since Cowell left to focus on the US version. However, that hasn’t been performing too well either. If things don’t take a rapid turn for the better, the next season of the UK X Factor may prove to be its last. Rihanna might be just the change the show needs.

“Simon is a huge admirer of Rihanna and knows she’s star quality. As well as bringing an aura to the panel thanks to her current standing in music, she is also feisty and will make great TV. Simon loves these sort of characters,” a source has commented for The Sun.
