The R&B singer might be taking a seat beside Simon Cowell

With L.A Reid and Britney Spears out as X Factor judges, there are two open spots on Simon Cowell’s hit Fox singing competition.

There has been very little word on who will be filling in the seats besides Cowell and pop princess Demi Lovato but one big name is generating a lot of talk: Ne-Yo.

The R&B singer has been gaining some following to be the next judge but there isn’t any official word yet.

Last night on the Grammy red carpet, Ryan Seacrest quizzed the “Let Me Love You” singer on what is really going on behind closed doors, according to Compex.com.

“Nothing is set in stone yet right yet. It's talks," he said.

He also said that he had been having lunches and dinners with producers in order to figure out some sort of deal.

Reported by Extra.com, Mario Lopez also spoke to Ne-Yo at the Grammys about the same situation.

“If it happens, I’d be more then willing to do so. I feel like I’ve been around long enough to have some vital information for someone on the way up, definitely.”

There have been no other reports of anyone else lined up to take a seat at the judges table.
