Leann Rimes In Talks With Producers For The X Factor Judge Spot

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.
