Simon Cowell wants Katy Perry and John Mayer on his "X Factor" judge panel. Pop Crush reported on March 4 that the celebrity couple could be a contender for the show. Judges Britney Spears and L.A. Reid made their exits after this past season. Katy and John could be the next ones to fill their seats.
Perry and Mayer are at the top of Cowell's wish list. He would love to have both of the musicians on the show. He offered the couple $20 million to appear on the next season of the "X Factor."
Simon is hoping that their romance will pull in enough viewers. The media isn't sure if fans care enough to watch Katy and John flirt on national television. Even Britney's short stunt on the reality show didn't pull as many viewers as they hoped.
It would be quite awkward if Perry and Mayer were to break up during the show's taping. Still, it could bring the ratings gold that Cowell desperately needs.
Katy Perry says that she wants to focus on her career. It's not sure if John Mayer wants to be on "The X Factor." Simon Cowell should focus on hiring judges that are competent enough to mentor the contestants.
