If chosen, the 19-year-old Disney stars will join Simon Cowell, LA Reid and the to-be-confirmed Britney Spears.
A source tells Celebuzz that ”there have been talks with Miley”, adding that Demi and the already-rumoured-a-bit Avril Lavigne have also been considered.
Filmed auditions for the new season start very soon, and Cowell also has a seat on the UK show to fill after losing Kelly Rowland. He’s apparently keen for Dannii Minogue to return to the show and take her place.
I suppose Cyrus wouldn’t be the most left-field person in the world, and it would certainly help reverse the backwards trend her album sales started to take with last LP Can’t Be Tamed in 2010. Lovato I genuinely would be shocked at – she’s amazing but she’s only just getting started, and nowhere near established enough to take up a seat on the panel.
Generally though it’s highly unlikely that either have been considered. Avril Lavigne and LeAnn Rimes seem far more likely candidates.
