The starlet has said that shed love to appear on the show, but is worried she might not win over the American audience
The singer had a live interview with Fearne Cotton on Radio 1 yesterday, where she said she’d ‘love to‘ appear on the Stateside version of the show, but admitted that it was a ‘really scary‘ concept.
The Geordie judge is worried that she might struggle to win over the American audience, who may not be able to understand her strong regional accent – and for the most part, have never even heard of her.
‘It’s kind of really scary, you know?‘ she said. ‘They don’t know me out there, and I’ve got this weird accent, and they’d be a bit like ‘what?”
‘I love the thought of it and I would absolutely love to do it,’ she continued.
‘The talent out there is phenomenal so I would get an absolute buzz out of doing it – but whether or not they would buzz off me is a different thing.’
But despite her huge success on the British X Factor, Simon Cowell has yet to directly ask her to sit on the American panel.
However, the starlet did admit she was feeling a ‘little worse for wear‘ – no, not due to her possible impending divorce, or the apparent recent case of bronchitis which caused her to cancel a string of public appearances – but because she’d been out on the town the night before with her Girls Aloud pals.
‘No bronchitis, but maybe I shouldn’t have drunk so much last night,’ she laughed.
