Katy Perry And John Mayer 'Offered X Factor USA Jobs'

Pop couple claimed to have been offered £13m to judge hopefuls on show...

Katy Perry and her musician boyfriend John Mayer are reported to have been offered a whopping £13m to join The X Factor USA's judging panel.

Now magazine claims that Simon Cowell has tapped up the high-profile pop pair to replace departing judges Britney Spears and LA Reid.

The other panel members are SiCo himself and Demi Lovato.

A source said: "Simon sees it as a brilliant pairing. Katy's sassy, honest and a huge star, while John's more reserved.

"Having them as rivals would be genius - if they had on-air bust-ups, it'd be unmissable."

Perry was reported to have been one of SiCo's first choices for the show anyway.
