Fergie at this year's GrammysFergie wants a job on The X Factor.

The Black Eyed Peas star - real name Stacy Ferguson - has asked to meet with Simon Cowell to discuss a possible job as a judge on the show, taking one of the slots left by Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul who were sacked after the end of the first series.

"There have been some conversations. It's in the early stages, but Fergie's the one who approached the producers about joining the panel," a source told Life&Style.

Fergie is one of a large number of female singers who have been linked to the job - including Britney Spears, Adele and LeAnn Rimes. However, "Hold It Against Me" hitmaker Britney is reportedly holding out for a huge paycheck before she takes part.

"Money is not an issue for the show. As of now, they are looking to pay her $12-15 million for the first season, with a drastic price hike for a second year based on ratings performance. Simon Cowell wants at least a two-year commitment and Britney wants an out clause if she doesn't want to continue after one year of service," a source said.
