Before her death, Whitney Houston appears to have acknowledged that she’d be judging the second season of The X Factor, although Simon Cowell said that his team was going to meet her Monday to discuss the possibility.
In the clip below, Whitney talks briefly to Clive Davis, Brandy, and Monica, who appear to be between interviews to promote his pre-Grammy gala at the Beverly Hilton, where Houston was found dead Saturday (here’s one interview).
As she walks in, she points to someone off-camera and says, “You’ll see us on X Factor.” Friday, news broke that she’d been approached to judge the show, and this appears to be confirmation that she expected to be on the show.
However, while an “absolutely devastated” Simon Cowell confirmed that he was considering her, he told Piers Morgan on CNN last night, “We were ironically going to meet on Monday and of course, one of the names we were going to be talking about in that meeting as a possible mentor on the new series of X Factor was going to be Whitney Houston.”
