I'm Bridget Daly, and today there's more news surrounding Simon Cowell's much-anticipated show X Factor. A whole new slew of names have been thrown into the mix of possible judges—Mariah Carey, George Michael, Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul. This comes one day after Jessica Simpson was announced as a possible frontrunner to fill a judge's seat. Simon himself admitted to talking recently with Mariah about the possibility, even though she's just a tad busy right now gearing up to deliver twins! Cowell told Access Hollywood he's spoken with several industry peeps and has narrowed down his list to a small group of faves. He did add that he can't solely make the decision on his judging panel, and that the other execs on the show will have a say as well. It's quite the eclectic group! Mariah would be awesome just because she's Mariah Carey! George Michael would definitely attract an older audience, while Nicole Scherzinger would be the perfect eye candy a show like that needs. But Jessica Simpson is a powerhouse in her own right, and just seems to be such a perfect fit for the show. But we want to hear from you! Who's your dream team for X Factor?
