She's flattered, but she's out of the running.

Janet Jackson has put the rumors - which she sort of encouraged initially by hemming and hawing during an interview with Anderson Cooper - of her involvement with The X Factor to rest.

In a statement, Janet says she's "very flattered that X Factor let me know I was being considered for next season, but it just wouldn't be possible."

Why not? What's on tap for the artist? She is committed to her Number Ones Up Close and Personal Tour and will be starring in an upcoming Tyler Perry movie.

Does this mean The X Factor will seriously consider Britney Spears as a judge? Let's hope so!

I'm not a judge on The X Factor.
You're not currently a judge on The X Factor.
No, I am not. But that's all I really think I should say.

And, with that exchange between Anderson Cooper and Janet Jackson yesterday, the singer made it sound very much like she'll be a panelist on season two of Simon Cowell's singing competition.

Over the last couple weeks, a variety of names have been bantered about for the judging gig, from Beyonce to Mariah Carey to Kelly Rowland. But Janet appears to be the most likely possiiblity yet.

Do you think Janet Jackson would make a good X Factor judge?
