With two slots remaining to be filled on the judging panel, the people of X Factor might not have to reach too far, to fill one of the voids left behind by Paula and Nicole. Current pop start, and former L.A. Reid protégé Avril Lavigne is interested in the gig, TMZ reported the story not too long ago... but at this point you can assume everyone including YOU is up for the judging spot.

Everyone is rumored to have a connection to the show. However, Avril asked her people to extend interest in the judging position on the X Factor, in hopes that her connection with Reid will help her chances. Some sources are saying Avril feels that since she came up in the biz at such a young age, she can mentor the kids on the show the right way. (Insert smart### remark here) Talks are reportedly already happening between the the X-Factor...and LeAnn, and Mariah, and Beyonce, and Britney, and whoever else is popular enough to hope viewers will tune in just for the judges.
