XFactor 2014 judges: LMFAO's Redfoo linked to show


LMFAO rapper Redfoo has been linked to The X Factor 2014 judging line up.

So far only Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell have been confirmed for the show, which will begin filming in the summer.

Louis Walsh is widely expected to take up a third spot leaving a big question mark over who will be the fourth judge.

While Olly Murs, Rita Ora and Robbie Williams have all been rumoured, all three are also apparently struggling to agree to a deal with hectic schedules.

According to The Sun newspaper, LMFAO's Redfood is a "possible contender" for a seat on the judging panel after impressing on the Aussie version of the show recently.

A show source told the tabloid this morning: “Simon wanted to wait until Cheryl was 100 per cent confirmed first, so they could talk. Both of them like how edgy and cool Redfoo is. He makes great telly.”

Cheryl said earlier this week she wanted a “strong woman” beside her on the show, hitting back at reports suggested she wanted to be the only female judge.

“There are people I’d love to join the panel. Definitely a strong woman,” the 3 Words singer insisted. “I’m kind of hoping I don’t have to deal with three guys because otherwise I’ll have no hair — I’ll be pulling it out all the time!”


The X Factor 2014 auditions begin with the open try outs next month before moving onto the judges’ auditions in the summer.

The X Factor will air on ITV in the autumn.
