Fergie wants a job on the US 'X Factor' .
The Black Eyed Peas star - real name Stacy Ferguson - has asked to meet with Simon Cowell to discuss a possible job as a judge on the show, taking one of the slots left by Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul who were sacked after the end of the first series.
A source told Life & Style magazine: 'There have been some conversations. It's in the early stages, but Fergie's the one who approached the producers about joining the panel.'
Fergie is one of a large number of female singers who have been linked to the job - including Britney Spears, Adele and LeAnn Rimes.
However, 'Hold It Against Me' hitmaker Britney is reportedly holding out for a huge pay cheque before she takes part.
A source said recently: 'Money is not an issue for the show. As of now, they are looking to pay her $12-15 million for the first season, with a drastic price hike for a second year based on ratings performance.
'Simon Cowell wants at least a two-year commitment and Britney wants an out clause if she doesn't want to continue after one year of service.'
