Avril Lavigne in talks to become X Factor judge

Speculation continues to grow about who will fill the empty "X-Factor" judges' seats.

CBS says the latest report suggests that Avril Lavigne is in talks to move into one of the open slots, according to TMZ.

Insiders said Lavinge's rep contacted "X-Factor" producers about the gig and now both sides are mulling it over, according to the website.

The Canadian pop star joins a growing list of reported potential judges, including Britney Spears, Fergie and Janet Jackson...but nothing has been confirmed to date.

They would fill the spots abandoned by Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, who parted ways from the show earlier this year.

Lavigne has an “in” with judge L.A. Reid – she was one of his protégés, and that could influence Avril’s ability to get the gig.
