Simon Cowell Expected To Judge Indian Version Of The X Factor
Media mogul Simon Cowell is expected to make the lives of Indian version of ‘The X Factor contestants miserable as he has been approached by the Indian channel bosses to judge the show.
The channel who has already bought the rights of the show from Cowell’s production company has asked the mogul to judge the show as well.
A source confirmed the news saying, "There are three judges in The X Factor. Sony is keenly interested in having him in the show and not only as the producer of the original format. Plans are on to launch it in a lavish way with big names on board. Internationally it can`t get any bigger than having Simon onboard."
The source added, "A team from Sony has already left for the UK to convince him to feature in the Indian version at least in helping the jury to make the top 20 or top 12 contestants. It is their way to attract eyeballs and garner viewership."
Simon who is has judged television shows like Pop Idol, Britian`s Got Talent and American Idol is widely known for his rude and blunt remarks.
