Avril Lavigne

In the Running

for 'X Factor' Judge Job

2/26/2012 6:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

With two judging slots to fill, it seems the folks at "X Factor" might not have to look far to fill one of the spots ... because former L.A. Reid protégé Avril Lavigne is interested in the gig ... TMZ has learned. 

According to our sources, Avril had her people reach out to the folks at "X Factor" to let them know she'd like to be considered for the job. Our sources says Avril feels that since she came up in the biz at such a  young age, she can mentor the kids on the show the right way.

We're told talks are already happening between the two sides.

Besides her connection to Reid, Avril performed on the finale of season one of "X Factor" with finalist Chris Rene.

She'd be a wonderful mentor. She could teach them to be rude, ungrateful, and spit at paparazzi. >_<

I seen interview with Lavigne...

No offense, but I know plants who have more personality than this chick.

Beyoncé, Avril... is Simon Cowell only looking for fake, emotionless singing robots to be a judge on his show?

Avril who?
One hit ten years ago.
Fantastic.

Seems the industry runs out of names.
What about getting real singers, let them sing, let them live.
And do not drop them too soon....THEN they will grow and mature.
And after maturation they can be a judge.

Now there comes an immature 27years old girly-type woman with no voice and judges.....
Oh, now i get it. They are searching for some new girly-type one hit wonders, so grandma Avril is searching for her successor.

UGH... Avril? Really!? X Factor just keeps on scraping the very bottom of the barrel. Avril wouldn't know talent if it slapped her in the face...

I love TMZ's commenters... half spam and half little morons who do nothing but envy their betters. Ewww Avril, what has she ever done? (as they sit in their underwear, alone, eating Cheetos).

My friend Vanessa, a 25 yrs lady, has announced her wedding with a millionaire young man Ronald who is the CEO of a MNC. It's amazing, she said she just posted her profile on a millionaire dating site called RichLovesС’ o _M....it's the place where you can meet m'illion'aires, who are searching for their special someone. It's worth a try!
