Sometimes they get the strangest celebs to be judges on these reality talent shows.

Jennifer Love-Hewitt is in the running to be on the judging panel of The X Factor USA.

The 34-year-old actress – who hit the charts in 2002 with her single BareNaked – is rumoured to be joining Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato on the third season of the pop star search show as a replacement for LA Reid and Britney Spears who’ve both departed the series.

Speaking to Us Weekly magazine, a source said, "Simon is very interested in Jennifer."

Cowell (53) has two positions up for grabs on the judging panel and is believed to be chatting to several celebrities about the roles, although Jennifer is said to be one of the favourites along with Kelly Rowland – who judged one series of the UK version of the show.

A source previously said, "Simon has always remained a fan of Kelly's and she's most definitely in the mix to join the judging panel on X Factor USA."

A representative for The X Factor USA has described the rumours as "pure speculation" though none have yet been denied.
