Simon Cowell, star of X-Factor thinks it’s a great idea…but the candid judge is putting those rumors to rest, according to Extra
“I would love to work with Will, but I don’t know where this story has come from, because we have never even spoken,” Cowell said.
A number of other stars too have been tipped for the judges’ chair, like Rihanna, Nicole Scherzinger and George Michael. But Cowell is yet to confirm his official line-up of judges. He, however, insists there will be big names.
“The X Factor” will appear on FOX in 2011… without Will Smith.
