A representative for pop superstar MILEY CYRUS has shot down rumors suggesting she is poised to join SIMON COWELL on the judging panel of Britain's THE X FACTOR.
The music mogul and show creator has previously admitted he would be interested to hear what the Wrecking Ball hitmaker had to say about the wannabes trying out for the reality competition, admitting, "She has an opinion, for sure".
And reports this week (begs24Mar14) suggested Cyrus, who is currently on her Bangerz tour, was a frontrunner for a role as a TV judge, but the singer's spokesperson has dismissed the claims, sarcastically telling the Mirror.co.uk, "Simon has more chance of getting Elvis or Gandhi as a judge."
Cowell recently announced that British pop star Cheryl Cole would be returning to the judging panel on The X Factor in the U.K., three years after she famously tried and failed to make the transition to the U.S. to launch the show with the industry veteran there. She was dropped from the 2011 line-up in America after filming just two audition rounds. The Stateside version was axed in February (14) after three seasons.
Meanwhile, Cowell has also denied speculation Rihanna is in talks to sit beside himself and Cole as a judge, saying, "I never spoke to her... I don't think she'd be available because of her commitments this year."
