A well-known R&B singer reportedly is negotiating to take over one of the judging seats on “The X Factor” left vacant by L.A. Reid and Britney Spears.
Digital Spy reports that Ne-Yo is in talks for a job on the Fox show. Ne-Yo confirmed the situation in an interview with Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards.
Said Ne-Yo: "It’s conversation. Nothing is set in stone right yet. It’s talks."
The report notes that Ne-Yo also mentioned it in January, saying: "There’s been a few lunches and dinners, but that’s all I can say right now."
