Jennifer Love Hewitt As X Factor Judge

When I first hard yesterday that Jennifer Love Hewitt's name was being thrown around as a name to be an X Factor judge, I really thought it was a bad idea. Then, I remembered she did have a pop career. Bare Naked comes to mind here and I think in Japan she was really popular as a singer. The thing is it was so long ago that I'm not sure anyone actually remembers and it seems to me there are plenty of other people you could get who are way more qualified and who would not seem such obvious stunt casting choices. Face it, that is what it is. With every singer in the world who is currently working or all the record executives, you want to choose Jennifer Love Hewitt?

What about LFO's song whatsitcalled?

FSP said...

I like JLH.

ethorne said...

I think she got 2 big recommendations for the job.

Ms Cool said...

She has a nice voice. I love the movie Heartbreakers so I can't hate her.

VIPblonde said...

Say wha?? And I like her singing. I've always preferred How Do I Deal over that song

MAC said...

If some no talent person is gonna make millions of dollars judging this stupid show at least let it be someone like JLH who seems nice enough.

Henriette said...

Will she bedazzle her vajay in celebration?

MISCH said...

She was really thin in that video ...saw on The Chew, she dresses like a 12 year old...

Cassandra Kelly said...

The Client List is a guilty pleasure of mine.

J. said...

Let's not forget her starring role in Sister Act II :)

Sarah said...

You mean 2 big qualifications? Lefty and righty

Sarah said...

Haha, I can't even deal with grunge JLH. Gotta love the 90s

Henriette said...

I can see her now with her big fake eyelashes and heaving cleavage, "oh stop Simon!" Let me gag now.

Topper Madison said...

Did anyone else think of Spinal Tap with the "I think in Japan she was really popular as a singer." line? I'm old.

Rafi said...

Um I forgot how much I loved this song until I heard it again. Lol. I agree with everyone she seems like a really nice person and we all know that shows like AI, X factor and the Voice aren't really based what judges are the most talented but who can bring the most viewers. If it were based on talent we would never get to see the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Demi Lovato, Nicki Minaj and countless other untalented folks. Btw I would put Britney Spears on that list but the inner 15 year old in me who still rocks out to her "Britney" album won't let me.

tara17 said...

She'll well-liked across demographics and knows about a career in showbiz. Plus what Rafi says about celebrity judges as a whole.

libby said...

This genre is SO tired, but I think JLH is as good a choice as anyone. She's 'real', likable, pretty, AND she's been in the business since she was little. She would have a sense of who has the goods to be in showbiz.

WhedonFan90 said...

How Do I Deal is one of my all-time favorites. I actually love that song and JLH is great.

Karen said...

I love JLH even though I don't watch her shows--she's so likable that she would be an excellent choice. Even if she had zero talent.

Max Power said...

If Britney Spears can't bring in the viewers, I doubt anyone can. I think the format's a tired one.

MontanaMarriott said...

Uhm how about a sistah who can really sing i.e. Chaka, Stephanie Mills, Dionne Warwick (who needs the money), Gladys Knight, there's a legion of real singers who would be great for the gig.

Robert said...

I don't watch the show and really don't care, but if she's as wacked as one or two blinds I've read here would seem to indicate, maybe they're hoping for some off-screen antics to boost ratings? Just a guess.

Shocky said...

@Lotta Girl on TV. Love some LFO

PuggleWug said...

Those songs are pure feces. Did she write that shit? Now I remember why that singing career never took off.

megan00m said...

Shes one of those in Hollywood that bugs to no end...I think so many years of hearing "I'm just a normal girl"... y do I need to be convinced? Its kinda like people who begin sentences with "honestly".

MadLyb said...

Yes please. I think she would be great! I want her to bedazzle us with tears, drama and her trademark silliness. Not that I've ever watched this show in my life...or even care. But I do like mindless gossip (only about people I don't know and will never meet), and I think her being on the show would be faaabulous in that respect.

Anna Nonymous said...

I remember her as a big part of Kids Incorporated on the Disney Channel, at around the same time as the new Mickey Mouse Club was getting going. Her and Fergie were on it together. Talented kids that could really sing. She's not bad, but hardly a music success. A lifetime channel success, a natural big booby award winner, but not much else.

Xander Dyle said...

@ethorne and @Sarah
She has literally named her bewbs "Thelma" and "Louise".
I think that Thelma is right and Louise is left. Boyfriends must never forget, or they kicked to the curb.
@FSP Info for you to remember in case you ever get a shot. Just trying to help a brother out.

Lucas said...

@Xander - is that her left, or would it be my left? Just in case.

LottaColada said...

@Shocky, YES! She gets credit for that song all day.

Lizzeh said...

Girl on TV!

Xander Dyle said...

@Lucas
Her left. Don't mess it up and call them wrong, or she'll get mad.
No Vajazzle viewings for you!

Sherry said...

OMG Montana..Gladys Knight would be wonderful. She has the most lovely and amazing voice.
I've never seen this video..off to watch.

Robert said...

@Mac: "If some no talent person is gonna make millions of dollars judging this stupid show at least let it be someone like JLH who seems nice enough."
Fuck that, let it be ME!

nudibelle said...
