SiCo: 'Harry And Louis Could Be X Factor Judges'
Simon Cowell says boy band mates would be his choices for panel...
The reality TV supremo was asked which member of the band would make the best judge at the launch of The X Factor USA yesterday.
"It would probably be between Louis and Harry," he answered, but then turned to fellow judge Demi Lovato and added: "Demi, you would probably choose Niall."
Demi has been romantically linked to 1D's Niall Horan in the media - and SiCo has already been teasing her about it earlier this week.
The 1D question arose because the band recently did a stint as guest judges on the Australian version of the show.
Meanwhile, in the first episode of The X Factor USA new judge Demi was seen getting a hard time from a 50-year-old man whose singing she had criticised.
She told Shawn Armenta: "A lot of people work really, really hard for their dreams, but it's not meant for everybody."
To which the angry hopeful replied: "That's why you use Auto-Tune and I don't."
But fellow new arrival on the judging panel Britney Spears quickly waded in to Demi's defence.
She shot back: "I feel uncomfortable with you even staring at me."
We think he got a "no".
