Simon CowellÂ won’t be the only “X Factor” judge returning for the show’s second season. Music mogul L.A. Reid has agreed to come back for another year. According to “The Hollywood Reporter,” the Epic Records chairman signed on for a second season last Friday. News of Reid’s return comes just days after the show dropped fellow judges Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger, and host Steve Jones.
U.S. weekly reports that Simon Cowell is also trying to add Beyonce to the cast of X factor as a full-time judge reportedly offering her an annual salary of $100 million to do the show.
