We don’t have any confirmation on this yet, one way or the other but we’re hearing rumblings of High School Musical stars, Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are strongly being courted to host Simon Cowell’s new project, the US version of X-Factor.
A source close to the production team says, “There could only be Simon and an absolute maximum of one other Brit on the show. He wants that Brit to be Cheryl. Dermot will be completely distraught. He spent months in America lobbying to get this job. He held out a lot of hope. But he can’t compete with Zac and Vanessa. They are two of the biggest stars in the States and will make American X Factor the biggest show in the world. They are more popular than Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie with under-30s in America. They’re in huge demand and would have to turn down a lot of work in order to do this.”
Do you think Zac and Vanessa would host X-Factor?
