The X Factor is all staffed up with the additions of Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio, but American Idol is still in need of some fresh faces. With Randy Jackson officially gone and Keith Urban, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj all expected to leave, the show has at least three seats to fill before season 13 takes off next fall.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, former Idol finalist Jennifer Hudson is in negotiations to join the show. Other Idol alums including Kelly Clarkson, Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert have also been rumored to be in the mix, although Clarkson's manager has flat-out denied the gossip.
JHudson has got my vote to join the show: easy on the eyes, insanely talented, and knows what she's talking about. That'd be rather refreshing!

Simon Cowell is gonna be outnumbered next fall, but I doubt he'll mind! With the departure of Britney Spears and L.A. Reid, Simon didn't waste anytime in filling the open spots. Destiny's Child star Kelly Rowland (Who judged The X Factor U.K. in 2011) and Latin singer Paulina Rubio are joining the panel next to Simon and Demi Lovato.
Cowell says in a statement, "It's taken more than a decade, but I'm delighted to finally be on a panel with three girls (I think!). Paulina and Kelly both have great taste and massive experience in the music industry and together with Demi, this is going to be a fun panel. It just feels like the time to do something different.”
What do you think? Will Kelly and Paulina keep The X Factor relevant next to The Voice???

"I'm doing 90 minutes of yoga twice a week in addition to a lot of cardio hour-long sessions three times a week with my trainer, Tony Martinez," Spears reveals. "The Vegas performances won't be simple. They'll be a massive party from start to finish. And to pull this off, I have to be in top condition and running at full speed."
Still no official announcement on where the Vegas show will take place, but the safe bet is Caesar's Palace.

No word on who will replace Spears and Reid, or whether Khloe Kardashian will return as co-host.
Who would you like to see join The X Factor??

The hottest gossip around the blogosphere right now is that the suits at The X Factor are planning to fire host Khloe Kardashian after her first season appearing on the show. Amid a shake-up at the judging table (Britney and L.A. Reid are gone), FOX execs are reportedly interested in rebooting the hosts too, and Khloe is the front-runner to get the axe.
However, a rep for the show says, "The producers have not yet made the talent decisions for this year."
What do YOU think? Sayonara Khloe?!

Canceling her Born This Way Ball tour, Lady Gaga is gonna be off her feet for awhile after she undergoes hip surgery. Docs have said the star will need plenty of time to rest, but that doesn't mean she couldn't sit in a chair and judge The X Factor, right?! With Britney Spears & L.A. Reid's departure, Simon has some shoes seats to fill for the next season of the show. So who does judge Demi Lovato want sitting next to her? Gaga of course!
"I would love to see Lady Gaga," Demi says. "I don't know if that is possible or not." We say it should be possible!

Walking away from $15 million for sitting on a chair listening to people sing? Yeah, she knew she was getting fired!

Not only is her commentary and advice so general and yawn-tastic, but she's being paid $15 million for it! No brainer. Brit's gotta go. Agrees??
