According to some shady gossip blogs, Simon Cowell might be trying to make a power play to boost next years 'X-Factor'.

He reportedly offered Beyonce $500 Million dollars to be a judge on the show for the next five years.

If Beyonce accepted, she and Jay Z would immediately be worth over $1 billion combined.

So far there has been no comment from either party involved, but you have to wonder how the show could make any money with such a huge payroll.

Other names that have been tossed into the judging mix are Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry.
