Cowell wants Katy Perry as ‘X Factor’ judge

London: ‘X Factor’ judge Simon Cowell is apparently impressed with Katy Perry’s scene-stealing stint as a judge and has offered her a pay-per-show deal.

Singer Katy appeared on the panel for the ‘X Factor’ auditions in Dublin.

"Jennifer Lopez was a serious consideration as was, weirdly, her husband Marc Anthony. Mariah Carey`s other half, Nick Cannon, is also in the frame," the Mirror quoted a source as saying.

"But Katy really came on Simon`s radar after the Dublin auditions. She absolutely nailed it. She was a natural.

"All the recent hoo-ha forced his hand slightly and he decided to offer her the gig and gauge her response.

"Katy was thrilled, especially by the package which is said to be a 220,000 pound-a-show deal. She has agreed to meet Simon and studio bosses in the States this autumn to see if something can be done," the source added.
