Simon Cowell wants Miley Cyrus for 'X Factor' judge

By Samantha Ravenscroft,

Simon Cowell apparently wants Miley Cyrus to be the next judge on The X Factor.

Cowell revealed that the former Disney star is in his dream team of judges for the singing competition. He recently said, "I recently met Miley Cyrus and I really liked her. She has an opinion for sure."

Cowell says his dream team also includes former American Idol judges Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson. "I would pick Paula and Randy from American Idol. They were my favorite judges because we had an incredible time together," he admitted, according to Mashable.

Cowell also stated in a conference call with reporters that a new season pick-up of the The X Factor has been approved despite the show's disappointing ratings this season.

"The show will be back next season," he said. He also hinted at the possibility of himself taking on a new role in the show, according to E! News.

Cowel, 54, also said the show may be undergoing a format change. Instead of the usual two nights a week, the show may go to just one night.

The X Factor season three finale will be airing in two parts with the first half airing on Wednesday, Dec. 18 and the second half on Thursday, Dec. 19.
