The Queen of Funk, Chaka Khan is rumored to be very interested in being a judge for Simon Cowell’s show The X-Factor.

According to TMZ, Khan says that her 40 plus years of being in the music industry and 10 Grammy awards more than qualifies her to be a judge for the show. It has also been said that she is so interested in the gig that she has instructed her team to reach out the show’s producers.

So many names have been thrown around for the judging position including Demi Lovato, Janet Jackson, and Britney Spears. However, Cowell has not been able to secure anyone of them.

Is CHAKA KHAN the one?

Stay tuned for more about this one…
