Simon Cowell, in fact he wants her so bad, he has allegedly offered her $500 million to do it. According to Mediatakeout.com, an insider said that Simon desperately wants to revive the show and thinks that adding the superstar would do it. The insider said, “He wants a big name female star on the panel. Mariah [Carey] is good, but she’s not that hot today. He wants Beyonce because that would immediately give him the bounce needed to beat American Idol.”The source said that Simon offered Bey $500 million or $100 million per year for five seasons. A source in Beyonce’s camp would not reveal whether or not if Beyonce is interested, but told the site to expect for the superstar to announce a major career move in the next month. According to E! News, this story is false. The site said that Simon may be trying to get Beyonce as a judge, but it is not likely that he would be willing to pay $500 million to get the superstar. Simon Cowell is interested in having Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj judge The X Factor.
