After a good-but-not-spectacular first season in the ratings, FOX and "The X Factor" creator Simon Cowell cleaned house on Jan. 30, dumping host Steve Jones and judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul.

That leaves only Cowell and L.A. Reid in place for next season, meaning the show will need a couple new judges to fill the two vacant seats. We first suggested these names last spring, and we're standing by them. All we ask is credit for the idea when some of these folks are hired for Season 2 of "The X Factor."
