With the rumor mill in full swing that Britney Spears and Demi Lovato are in line to join the judging table at“The X Factor,” the show appears to be turning its attention to the hosting duties. And the latest word has it that Miley Cyrus may just be a candidate.
HollywoodLife.com is reporting that Cyrus could be one of the two people to take over for the fired Steve Jones. EP Simon Cowell has previously stated that it is his goal to have a male and female co-host for the singing competition.
“She may not be the fourth judge but she may be the host,” a source tells the publication. “The new Steve Jones may be Miley Cyrus. Simon Cowell likes Demi and Miley and wants them both and she is considering it.”
Cyrus had previously been rumored to be under consideration for a judging position. But since then, Lovato has become a leading contender.
At just 19, Cyrus would be the youngest host of any of the shows in the genre. “American Idol” personalityRyan Seacrest is 37 while Carson Daly of “The Voice” is 38. Quddus, 31, will host ABC’s “Duets.”
