King of Pop set for X Factor?
If rumours are to be believed, then Michael Jackson could make a long-awaited return back into the public eye with an appearance on ITV’s top talent show the X Factor.
The moon-walking singer is apparently set to shock the remaining contestants when he turns up to their boot camp in order to act as a mentor to them.
With interest in the show flagging after so long, the producers are hoping to inject some excitement back into proceedings by getting some of the biggest names in pop to share their wisdom with the hopefuls.
As well as former winners Shane Ward and Leonia Lewis, Westlife, Celine Dion, Rihanna and Mariah Carey have all been lined up to grace the nation’s screens over the coming weeks, though it is the prospect of Jacko lending a hand which has really got the show’s producers excited, the Sun has claimed.
“We’ve got some huge names but Michael Jackson really is a sensational signing,” a source told the paper.
“He is a truly global, worldwide superstar.”
It has also recently been reported that Kylie Minogue, sister of judge Dannii, is to appear as a guest on the show next month.
