"The X Factor" is reportedly in early discussions with singer Janet Jackson to join the program, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s The Live Feed blog.

Jackson has reportedly expressed interest in working on the Fox show, but the talks are still in the preliminary stage, the piece notes. The report comes after Anderson Cooper and Jackson talked about the subject, with Jackson noting she’s not currently a judge and adding, "But that’s all I really think I should say," the story adds.

Simon Cowell has two other singers on his list — Pink and Katy Perry — as possible replacements for the show’s ousted judges, the story says.

As previously reported, the show recently cleaned house, dumping judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger along with host Steve Jones. Thus far only L.A. Reid is signed for next season.
