Simon Cowell wants dibs on Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey for “X Factor”

Hollywoodnews.com: Pop-music couples Jennifer Lopez-Marc Anthony and Marah Carey-Nick Cannon are being courted by Simon Cowell to appear as judges on the U.S. version of his “X Factor” show.

A source told U.K.’s The Mirror: “Simon needs diversity on the panel if the US X Factor is going to be a big smash.”

“He thinks J.Lo or her hubby would be fantastic additions so it could be bad news for Cheryl (Cole).”

Christina Aguilera, Jamie Foxx, Lady GaGa, Louis Walsh, Cheryl Cole and Paula Abdul have all been approached for a role on the show in recent months. However, Cowell remains the only judge committed.

JLo is currently hosting this weekend’s World Music Awards in Monaco. Cowell wants her on the show as a means to tap the lucrative Latino market. JLo’s recent film “The Back Up Plan” has made $31 million stateside. Carey is scheduled to star in the next Tyler Perry film “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf.”

Dermot O’Leary is expected to host the reality show.
