LA Reid named judge of X-Factor

Former executive at Island Def Jam records, LA Reid has been officially tapped as the first judge on the highly anticipated American version of X-Factor.

Reid is well established in the music world backing such talent as P!nk, Justin Beiber, TLC and Mariah Carey. We also hear that he may join another record company which will also be the official record company of the show.

Simon has been very tight lipped on who he wants on the show but rumors are flying that the likes of Enrique Iglesias could host and Taylor Momsen (Gossip Girl, the Pretty Reckless) could judge.

What do you think of these names? Let us know!
