Will Carrie Underwood be the next X-Factor judge?

Well, according to the X Factor boss man himself, she won't be doing anything but singing if she's on the show.

Simon Cowell recently told a Chicago radio station that he heard the rumors regarding Carrie getting a judging gig on his show.

"It's news to me. It really, really is. I don't think that's true. I mean, I adore Carrie. We found her on the show, but I don't know if that's true or not," he said.

It's not like he hates country music either. He also admitted that he knew last year's winner was going to be a country singer...and it was!

"Actually we wanted a country singer for 'X Factor' last year, and that's why we searched the regions of the country. As soon as I heard Tate's first audition, I said, 'I think this guy's going to win. I think people are going to really, really like him. He's a great guy. Honest guy. He deserves a break. Great singer.' Sure enough he won, and I was thrilled for him."

We don't know about you but we thought Carrie was a pretty good choice to replace one of the judges on the panel. Having someone from the country music world wouldn't hurt! American Idol does have Keith Urban on the show!

Who do you think the new X Factor judges will be? Any suggestions?
