Janet Jackson could be among the new “X Factor”  judges, according to a report.

The singer, who tried to dodge the topic during an appearance on “Anderson” set to air Monday, is reportedly in early talks with Simon Cowell to join the FOX series.

Last month, it was announced season one judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger wouldn’t be returning to the show, although fellow panelist L.A. Reid will be back.
