Big news last night out of The X Factor 2012 Season 2 camp and not the fact that in a shocking elimination Emblem 3 went home on The X Factor USA 2012, but in an interview beforehand L.A. Reid announced that he would be leaving the show as a judge when this season finishes! I am shocked by this news, but could it be the constant fighting between Simon Cowell and L.A. that made him make this decision? L.A. Reid quitting as a judge on The X Factor Season 2 means we will have another off-season of rumors flying around on who will be the next judge on The X Factor 2012!
In an interview with Access Hollywood last night before the live results show on The X Factor 2012, L.A. said: “I have decided that I will not return to The X Factor next year. I have to go back and I have a company to run that I’ve kind of neglected and it saddens me a little bit, but only a little bit.”
L.A. Reid is the chairman and CEO of Epic Records and he claims his job is what is bringing him back and nothing to do with his bitterness with Simon: “It was a nice break, it was a nice departure from what I’ve done for the past 20 years, but now I gotta get back to work.”
So, let the speculation begin on who will be the next judge. Britney Spears announced earlier this season that she would be willing to come back for Season 3, if they want there. Will they want her back though? She is my girl, but she is pretty lame and boring with her critiques, but being all drugged up can do that to a girl! Who do you want to see as the replacement for L.A. Reid on The X Factor 2012?
