Rihanna

Guest Judge on 'X-Factor'

Simon Cowell is pulling out all the stops to make sure the U.S. version of "The X Factor" is a hit -- we've learned he's snagged Rihanna as a guest judge.

Judges on the show bring on guests to help them decide which contestants to mentor -- and Antonio "L.A." Reid, who signed Rihanna back in 2005, will bring her on board to help him decide.

According to our sources ... RiRi loved doing the U.K. finale last year, and the feeling from Simon was obviously mutual.

Still don't see why Simon didn't get a male singer for the other male judge spot.

While L.A. Reid is one of the more known music executives a singer would have gotten more attention from the fans.

Any woman that walks around with necklace on that reads C*NT I have absolutely no tolerance or respect for.

Rihanna will do just fine the haters or everywhere
talking smack while rihanna keeps right on working as hard as she humanly can on her career. And talk is cheap and many have nothing good going on in their lives and the highlight of their mere existance is to try and Belittle Others, mainly Rihanna!

Is she going to spread her legs & squat down a bunch of times, like she does at her concerts? She could make a hooker blush with her dance moves...

I'm already sick of hearing about the "American" version of X-factor - is it even on the air yet?
