Looks like Calvin Harris is joining the X-Factor brand
Calvin Harris is killing it right now, whether you like him or not.
He is the world’s highest paid DJ, just smashed it at the VMAs and other awards, and has a string of hits that rivals anyone in pop music.
If the rumors are true (which they probably are), Harris will be adding another accomplishment to his belt, appearing on the UK’s The X Factor.
Upon first glance, the pairing of Harris and The X Factor seems like an obvious choice. However, the producer has had a longstanding feud with Simon Cowell following an incident in 2009 when he mocked the act Jedward.
The two have since buried the hatchet (apparently) and Harris is rumored to be in consideration to help mentor Nicole Scherzinger’s, of Pussycat Dolls fame, selections. Cowell is said to have made a “beeline” for Harris to obtain his participation.
