Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton and X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger have split up.
The F1 ace and singer – who have been dating on and off for five years – have reportedly called time on their relationship after their hectic work schedules meant that they hardly spent any time together as a couple.
Scherzinger – who is based in the US – has just reclaimed her seat on the The X Factor judging panel and is currently dashing around the country for auditions, while Hamilton – who lives in Switzerland – has been focusing on his racing career and has been competing around the globe.
Simon Cowell, 53, has been spotted on dates recently with 40-year-old Electra, but would not go as far as saying they were in a relationship.
He said: “She’s not my girlfriend. We’re people who date. She’s adorable, isn’t she?”
Cowell has been single since breaking off his engagement to make-up artist Mezhgan Hussainy last year and was first spotted having dinner with Electra in Los Angeles in September.
The former Baywatch star, who has been married to basketball star Dennis Rodman and guitarist Dave Navarro, has made no secret of her fondness for the X Factor mogul. According to, The London Evening Standard.
According to New York Post, singer/actress Janet Jackson is reportedly talking to Simon Cowell about joining “The X Factor.”
Jackson, a guest on this Monday’s episode of “Anderson,” is asked by Anderson Cooper about rumors she’s in talks to become a judge on the show, which canned judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul in a shakeup last month. Host Steve Jones was also fired.
Abdul had an affair with Jackson’s brother Jackie Jackson of The Jacksons while he was married to Enid Jackson who is now deceased.
“No, I am not [currently a judge on ‘The X Factor’], but that’s all I really think I should say,” Jackson says in a clip from the interview.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, singer Pink is also in the running.
SAN FRANCISCO – Simon Cowell and Fox will allow contestants for the upcoming X Factor reality show to audition via YouTube if they missed the live auditions. YouTube auditions will end June 9, solo artists and vocal groups — you must be at least 12 years old — can submit an audition video on YouTube at youtube.com/theXfactorusa.
Good Luck to the contestants and I can’t wait to see the show, this show allows a wide range of ages.

HOLLYWOOD_ Simon Cowell new show X Factor puts RED FLAG on American Idol. Cowell received many boos on American Idol and you either hate him or love him. The Brits are known for being upfront, honest, direct and not 2-faced like Americans. Many disappointed American Idol fans will be watching X Factor which means American Idol may get canceled. So many American Idol fans were deeply hurt when their favorite Idol did not win, great talents such as Adam Lambert, Melinda Doolittle, Elliott Yamin, Mandisa and others, Lambert did not get the title because he is gay, Doolittle did not win because she does not look like Halle Berry or Beyonce, Yamin lost because he’s Jewish, Mandisa did not make it because her dress size was not a 2. Yamin and Mandisa have marketable sound but not marketable looks. American Idol should announce that they are looking for LOOKS not TALENT. Hopefully, The X Factor will be fair in judging and voting. I’m sure the X Factor will be a lot harder for the contestants to compete for the grand prize of 5 million dollars. The viewer will probably enjoy the wide age range of the X Factor. I am not a Paula Abdul fan due to the fact what she did to my buddy however, she does bring in the ratings. Welcome X Factor, American Idol will be evicted!
