Avril Lavigne in talks for spot on ‘X Factor’ judging panel

Will she be a judge?

If Simon Cowell is looking for a female judge that isn’t afraid to make hard decisions and speak her mind then Avril Lavigne is certainly the woman for him.

Ever since Cowell cleaned house on ‘The X Factor’ almost every name in the music industry has been thrown around as possible replacements for Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger on the judging panel. Although Janet Jackson and Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas seem to be the speculated front runners for the job, Lavigne is also allegedly interested in snagging one of the two covenanted spots on the panel.

A source spoke to TMZ about Lavigne’s interest in the show and revealed that Avril’s people have reached out to the masterminds behind ‘X Factor’ to see if they would be interested in her for the judging panel. With Avril entering the music industry at such a young age, she could easily mentor the younger contestants and give them real insight as to what is expected and what direction they could go.

Talks between the two sides has supposedly begun and  since Avril already has her foot in the ‘X Factor’ door as she performed with season 1 finalist, Chris Rene, and she is connected to L.A. Reid it might be the perfect way to breathe life into the show since she already has good chemistry with one of the other judges.

Do you think that Avril would be a good judge on ‘The X Factor’?  Who would you like to see on the panel?  Leave us a comment and let us know what you think.
