The X Factor USA to add LeAnn Rimes to judging panel?

There has been a lot of talk about the two empty seats on the judging panel of The X Factor USA since it was revealed that Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul would not be returning for the second season. Many names have been linked to the vacant roles as The X Factor USA judges and it has already been confirmed that Fox will replace the two outgoing women with two incoming women.

The latest person to have been mentioned as a possible judge on season two of The X Factor USA is LeAnn Rimes, who is reportedly very interested in the idea. It is claimed that LeAnn recently met up with The X Factor USA co-producer FremantleMedia North America, to discuss the terms of her joining the reality singing competition.
 
However, there has been talk of many people before Leann Rimes and none have yet to be confirmed. Some of the names mentioned so far include Mariah Carey, Katy Perry and most recently Britney Spears was said to be interested in joining The X Factor USA for season two. So far though, nobody has been confirmed, so we will just have to wait and see.

It has been reported that 48 year old singer Whitney Houston has been found dead at the Beverly Hills hotel. An emergency call was made and the Beverly Hills police department responded immediately and hotel staff and the fire department attempted to revive her but it was all in vain as Whitney Houston had already passed.

Whitney Houston was once considered to be one of the best female artists around but her fame and fortune affected her life in a very negative way. Whitney’s voice began to suffer from a drug addiction and her turbulent marriage to fellow singer Bobby Brown also took its toll on the star. Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston’s godmother, admitted that she was truly stunned to learn of her death.
 
Aretha explained, “I just can’t talk about it now,” Franklin said in a short statement. “It’s so stunning and unbelievable. I couldn’t believe what I was reading coming across the TV screen.” Whitney Houston inspired a number of singers, including Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera and she will continue to inspire many more. R.I.P. Whitney Houston, you are gone but your music will live forever.

However, Nick is determined that he will be back to 100% in no time.

Cannon explained, “I used to be a fast food junkie. She gets to have higher protein, which isn’t fair because I love my steaks and I can’t eat that anymore. Her carbs are lower so we are both on a diet, but it is different.” Nick also took to his official Twitter page to admit that getting back into shape was also a bit of a struggle but that he was determined to make it happen.
 
He added, “Getting back in shape is going to be tuff, the DR said because of my condition my body can’t process protein and that’s what builds muscle. Time to work smarter not harder…but I got to get right by the time America’s Got Talent starts! It’s going to be difficult to get my six pack back on this Renal Diet. No muscles, skinny with a guy is not fresh. Right now in my tanktop I look like Samuel L. Jackson is Black Snake Moan #needtogetbackinshape.” American’s Got Talent is set to return to NBC this summer.

41 year old singer, Mariah Carey has revealed how she has lost an incredible 70 pounds since giving birth to her twins earlier this year. Mariah Carey’s body now looks sexier than ever, with her toned, washboard tummy and curves in all the right places.

 
Mariah Carey revealed that her weight loss was down to a very strict, low calorie diet plan and a sensible exercise regime. She explained, “I gained an enormous amount of weight. I was scared I was never going to walk again. I feel incredible but it was a long road. Being pregnant felt longer than it was. It was a huge blessing to be able to have the babies but I felt trapped in my body because I couldn’t move.”
 
 
Mariah added, “When I started, I got really strict with myself,’ she tells Us. ‘Losing weight is about eating what you like, just in the appropriate portion sizes. I wouldn’t say it was really hard, but it required focus and determination. In our society we tend to just eat and eat because it’s there. I’d love to sit around and eat whatever I want all day, but now I have to watch it.”
