(LOS ANGELES) — Word is that new mom Beyonce is being offered a whopping $100 million per year if she signs on for a five-year stint judging X Factor. That’s according to MediaTakeout, which claims to have gotten the info from the same person who revealed that Jennifer Lopez was joining American Idol.
X Factor creator Simon Cowell is reportedly offering Beyonce big bucks to join the panel of judges in hopes of giving the show a much-needed boost in ratings.
Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger were booted from their positions as judges, and Mariah Carey has been mentioned as a possible replacement for one of them next season.
Beyonce was featured on the British version of X Factor back in 2008 when she appeared as a guest singer and mentor.
