We’ve been hearing chatter for weeks about who will replace our favorite face-maker, Britney Spears on The X Factor Season 3. And out of the handful of divas who have nothing on Brit’s slow clap, Jennifer Love Hewitt is one of our favorite rumored ladies in contention for a seat on the panel.

An Us Weekly source recently mentioned that Simon Cowell is interested in having the former ingenue who made angel-print shirts a thing (never forget Can’t Hardly Wait) cozy up to his V-necks when the third season kicks off this fall.

And any starlet worth her 15 minutes (um, years?) of fame knows that you can’t just plop down next to Demi Lovato with less than flawless hair. Which explains why JLoHew was spotted at the CVS in Los Angeles picking up a box of Clairol Root Touch-Up by Nice ‘n Easy.

Whew! With the busy schedule she’d have if she does get onto the FOX reality competition show, it’s important to be able to control your own look. Just ask Demi... but, uh, leave the colored hair streaks to the pros — right, Brit?
