The celebrity blogger posted an open letter to the music impresario, detailing why he thinks he would be perfect as a judge on The X Factor USA’s second season.
In the video, Perez cited his 4.5 million followers on Twitter, the millions of fans who regularly visit his website and listen to his radio shows. He also points out his keen interest in music as reasons why Cowell should consider him as a judge for the Fox singing competition.
“Most importantly I am a huge music lover and I bring with a lot of experience and expertise in the world of music. I have been a huge champion and early supporter of such artists as Lady GaGa, Katy Perry, Adele and Amy Winehouse.”
Well, at least he has shown he would be interested in the girls’ category!
Hilton said he would just be himself, which is just fabulous anyway. He would keep it real, sharing his honest opinion as “the viewer and the expert. He said he watched last season and was shocked that the judges seemed to be “feeding the contestants and the audience a bunch of BS.”
Perez Hilton says he would happily screen test for the X Factor judging role. He added that he would give 100% of his salary to charity GLSEN.
“I will do whatever it takes! I’m Perez Hilton and I’m your next X Factor judge.”
Replacements have yet to be announced for departing judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger and host Steve Jopnes, so would you like to see Perez Hilton fill one of those roles?
A recent report suggested that Mariah Carey may be a possibility. She was due to join Simon Cowell on the Judges’ Houses stage of the competition.
