Who better to judge real talent than an Oscar-worthy actress who has for years fooled fans and followers that hers exists? Such was probably the forethought of L.A. Reid when casting Rihanna in her latest acting gig as guest talent judge on the hit U.S. reality talent show X Factor.
At this stage of the show, each judge – Nicole, Simon, Paula, and L.A. – has separated the hopefuls into groups with each member of the panel inviting their respective groups to their homes for ‘bootcamp’. To add spice to the broth (and hopefully to ratings), the U.S. spin-off keeps in fashion of its British predecessor in that each judge sought the assistance of some of the music industry’s brightest movers and shakers (and Rihanna) to lend their advice to the contestants.
