Rihanna to Serve as Guest Judge on X Factor

by at . Comments

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.
