Crooner Leann Rimes is presently in talks with The X Factor producers to fill one of two judge’s spots following Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger’s departures. Rimes was recently questioned regarding the potential X Factor position following a meeting with FrematleMedia North America (co-producers of the hit reality show) and offered: “There are a lot of unknowns, but I’m always open. I love the show. I was a kid on Star Search when I was eight. I obviously have an 18-year-career in this business.”
X Factor creator Simon Cowell has been working with the show’s executives and mentioned that a final decision would arrive in the very new future before the second season of the show begins. Among Rimes’ competition for the pair of judge spots are: Fergie, Kelly Rowland, Vanessa Hudgens, Mariah Carey, and Britney Spears.
In addition to the possible X Factor gig, the twenty nine year old second wife of Eddie Cibrian is getting ready to head back into the studio to record her 14th album next month.
Former Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland is forging her third attempt at solo stardom with the release of a new techo-inspired dance album, featuring production by French music sensation David Guetta — who teamed up with Kellz on the 2009 charttopping ballad “When Love Takes Over.” Here we have a video for her latest single, “Commander.” The Grammy Award-winning singer and Guetta have again struck dancefloor gold with their latest collaboration — created with the help of songwriter Rico Love.
Kelly’s third studio album is slated for release in September.
