Jessica told Women’s Wear Daily (via Pop Eater), “They have definitely talked to me about ‘X Factor.'” She added, “I think it would be a lot of fun. It’s definitely my life. To be a mentor for up-and-coming artists is right up my alley. I would have loved to have a mentor. I love watching people’s dreams come true.”

Although it hasn’t been confirmed if she’ll be one of the show’s judges just yet, other potential judges in the rumor mill are Nicki Minaj, Enrique Iglesias and oh yes, Paula Abdul.

One judge has been confirmed though and that’s L.A. Reid. In a statement Simon indicated, “L.A. was my number one choice to sit alongside me on the show.” Plus, he said, “In my opinion, he is one of the greatest-ever music executives and, of course, a fantastic writer and producer. I am thrilled he has agreed to join the show, and for any artist auditioning, they know they have the chance to meet a true star-maker.”
