If Rihanna can find time to stop Tweeting photos of herself pantsless, Simon Cowell may have a job for her.

With L.A. Reid announcing his departure from The X Factor, at least one spot on next season's judging table will be vacant - and The Sun says Cowell hopes it can be filled by Rihanna.

"Simon is a huge admirer of Rihanna and knows she’s star quality," a source tells the newspaper. "As well as bringing an aura to the panel thanks to her current standing in music, she is also feisty and will make great TV. Simon loves these sort of characters.”

Rihanna is a Barbados native and Cowell often vacations there around the holidays, the insider adds. Expect a meeting to take place over the next few weeks.

But should it? Do you think Rihanna would make a strong X Factor judge?

Thursday evening's X Factor results show was noteworthy not just for the decision between Stacy and Astro (and the latter's behavior), but for the fact that Rihanna was not the most controversial person on stage for once in her life.

Performing her latest hit in a bomber jacket pair of circa 1991 ripped jeans, red-haired RiRi thrilled fans with a rendition of her latest dance-pop hit, "We Found Love"

She gave the X Factor performance of the week, no doubt. Watch it below:

Simon Cowell has inked Rihanna to be a guest judge on X Factor.

Pulling out all the stops to make sure the U.S. version of the British show is a hit, Cowell certainly won't lack for A-list talent with guest appearances like this.

Judges on the show bring on guests to help decide which contestants to mentor. Antonio "L.A." Reid, who signed Rihanna back in '05, will bring her on board.

Rihanna reportedly loved doing the U.K. finale of X Factor, and the feeling from Simon was mutual. Therefore, bringing her on this fall was a no-brainer.
