It seems the 21-year-old Wrecking Ball singer’s headline-grabbing antics have caught the attention of influential music mogul and boss of the show, Mr Simon Cowell.
Speaking of his dream line-up for the fourth series, which is expected to kick off next year, Uncle Si said he was after someone ‘who’d be really fun to watch’ before hinting that Miley could be the perfect replacement for Ms Lovato.
‘I recently met Miley Cyrus, and I really liked her’, he told US website Mashable. ‘She has an opinion for sure.’
Whether you reckon he’s a madman or a genius, there’s no denying Miley could make one hell of an addition to the panel. We’re imagining Nicole Scherzinger-style winding, grinding and innuendo-filled feedback – only x1000. It’s a yes from us!
The 54-year-old dad-to-be also spilled on who else he’d love to see sitting alongside the latex-loving twerker.
‘I would pick Paula [Abdul] and Randy [Jackson] from American Idol – they were my favorite judges because we had an incredible time together’, Simon continued.
Do you think Ms Cyrus has what it takes to land a spot in the coveted X Factor judging seat? Let us know below…
