George Michael has X Factor

Word is George Michael has signed up to be a judge on the American X Factor.

There's plenty of reports this morning (Dec 16) that Simon Cowell has put his faith in the singer placing him on the panel alongside Cheryl Cole.

It's a chance for the former Wham star to re-launch his career after a jail stint for drug-driving.

The series starts next year. A source told the Sun Newspaper: "George is going to take the job. It's an amazing opportunity to get back in the limelight and reverse his recent bad spell. Simon knows that Americans love him. He is as big in the US as he is over here.
 
"He is a true star and has the wit and experience for the job. It's the perfect platform to resurrect his career."
 
Simon Cowell is now trying to convince Noel Gallagher to join the judge’s panel.
