L.A Reid all about it

Simon Cowell may be taking his time deciding which girls should take their places on the US X Factor judging panel, but he's getting his act together when it comes to the elderly 'wise men' of the music industry. According to reports, Cowell has enlisted Island Def Jam boss L.A. Reid. The auditions start at the end of March, so Simon had better hurry up...

An insider told The Daily Mail 'It's a done deal', while Reid commented, 'I think music on television certainly has a place and it's important. In some ways, TV has become as impactful as radio once was. It's just another way of doing it. You can find music on American Idol, on YouTube, on KIIS-FM or on a mixed tape. The more platforms we have, the better off we are as an industry.' We'll take that as a yes, Mr Music Mogul.

In other US X Factor news, Cheryl continues to wait, trapped in her 6 star LA hotel, like a heat magazine Rapunzel. Just put her out of her misery Cowell, and say yes for Gawd's sake...
