‘The X Factor’ USA: Is Chaka Khan joining Britney Spears as judge?

Do we have a new addition?

Are we going to see Chaka Khan on “The X Factor” this coming season? While it’s still unlikely, we have to say that the singer is still going to be giving it her best show.

According to TMZ, Chaka has let it be known to Simon Cowell and the show’s producers that she would like to be on the panel for season 2 alongside Britney Spears (who has still yet to confirm the gig), Cowell, and L.A. Reid. However, there is no word yet on if anyone wants to bring her on board the show. While her name could bring in some older viewers (and it has worked for “The Voice” UK and Tom Jones), it does not solve a key problem — trying to get some younger eyeballs to watch the show.

At the moment, the leading candidate to become the fourth judge is one-time Disney Channel star Demi Lovato — who does certainly bring in a youthful demographics. Producers have also reportedly talked about Miley Cyrus, who has been working on some music as of late.

No matter what their decision is, the show is going to have to come up with something soon. After all, filming for the show kicks off in a matter of weeks after the Fox upfront (and after Cowell wraps up work on “Britain’s Got Talent,” which is set to air live shows all week).

Based on all of the candidates you have heard about, who do you think is the combination of judges for the show?
