While it was announced this week that judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, as well as host Steve Jones, would not be returning for a second season of The X Factor, new reports reveal that L.A. Reid has been confirmed to come back as a judge.
According to E! Online, L.A. signed his renewed contract on Friday to be joining Simon Cowell back on the judges’ panel for round two of the talent competition series.
Meanwhile, the other now empty seats at the table have not been filled, including an open spot as the show’s host.
Melanie Amaro took home the $5 million prize on the first season of FOX’s X Factor USA.
