The X Factor hasn’t even been renewed for a fourth season, but that hasn’t stopped some sources from saying who they think will make the judging panel next time on the Fox reality TV show.

We’d already heard X Factor head honcho Simon Cowell had his hopes set on Miley Cyrus joining the family. Now it sounds as if Mr. Nasty wouldn’t mind if Ke$ha took a seat at the table, too. Whether this is in addition to Miley or to fill another as yet unannounced vacancy we’re not sure.

“Simon thinks that if they keep with the regular format, Ke$ha would be great,” a source tells Hollywood Life. “She’s relevant and would have a lot to share in life experiences just like Demi [Lovato].”

Dems, of course, announced her departure from X Factor at the end of Season 3. As for those “life experiences” the HL source mentions, Ke$ha is currently seeking treatment for an eating disorder. She checked in to an Illinois facility on January 3 for a 30-day program. Demi, a fellow rehab veteran, is reportedly interested in working with Ke$ha to get her life back on track.

That’s one of Simon’s goals too, adds the HL insider. “Simon also knows that the show could provide a stable, healthy environment for her and really thinks she would work greatly for the show next season,” the source explains.

What would you make of Ke$ha joining X Factor? Make sense or just idle chatter? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
