X Factor considering options for host and judges

Simon Cowell‘s latest project, a US version of the hit UK talent show X Factor, has been feverishly looking for the right combination of a host and judges to get the show started on the right foot.  There have been a lot of rumors that ended up being not true, but now it seems that after LA Reid was signed to be the first judge, now Enrique Iglesias has been approached to take on the role of host.

It’s curious that they’ve chosen a musician to be the host and not a judge. I wonder how Enrique feels about that?  Not that his career has been going so well of late – it might be the best offer he’s had in a while.
