Janet Jackson will not be joining the judges panel on X Factor, according to TheInsider.com.
The 45-year-old "Control" singer tells the site that she's “very flattered that X Factor let me know that I was being considered for next season, but it just wouldn't be possible."
Just last year, judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger were reportedly fired from their spots on the hit Fox show.
Now that Janet has declined, singers like Britney Spears, Mariah Carey and Avril Lavigne are rumored to be gunning for the spot.
We would have loved to see Ms. Jackson on the panel!
