The news is out: Demi Lovato is officially done with The X Factor after two seasons as a judge and mentor. She’s never had a winner on the show but girlfriend leaves the Fox reality show a star. Who could possibly fill her leather jacket, blue-haired glory?

Fellow X Factor judge and frequent Dems sparring partner Simon Cowell already has someone new in mind. He’s said major changes are ahead for the series and strongly hinted he too may soon be leaving his spot as a judge as he takes on “a different kind of role” for himself. Now it sounds like that role may be as handler to Miley Cyrus.

The notoriously unfiltered Brit told reporters that he appreciates Miley’s no nonsense and thinks that kind of honesty would make for a good addition to X Factor. “She’s got a big mouth!” he said of the “Can’t Stop” singer as reported by E! News.

As amazing a land as Miley Cyrus on X Factor would be, she, like Demi, also has a huge tour coming up in the new year making her availability unlikely. And even if she wasn’t touring, will there even be a Season 4 of X Factor for anyone to judge?

A source tells E! News, “There haven’t been any conversations about judges next year.” Hope Miley isn’t waiting by the phone.

Do you think Miley would make a good X Factor judge, or not really? Share your feels in the comments below.
