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.

All this talk actually made me not want to watch this show. Too much exposure.

Shouldn't people in these kinds of shows should actually have talent or at least be qualified to judge talent ? Rihanna is an entertainer not an artist. To me she sounds like a bag of sick car********* the wall...,
