Is Janet Jackson Joining The X Factor?

Janet Jackson most certainly has the x factor but does she have The X Factor?

The pop icon appears caught off guard by the question when Anderson Cooper asks during an interview set to air Monday on his talk show.

"Oh my God," she said, before stumbling over her words a bit and laughing. Watch the clip above.



When she finally found the words to answer his very pointed question, Jackson, 45, says, "No I'm not a judge on The X Factor."

But, there are two spots open on Simon Cowell's show after season 1 judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger were fired in January.

"You're not currently a judge on The X Factor," a giddy Cooper says.

"No, I am not," Jackson replies, "but that's all I really think I should say."

"Intriguing, I will say," Anderson says. "Intriguing."

Indeed!
