Janet Jackson politely passes on The X Factor judge position. The singer says in a statement that she is “very flattered that X Factor let me know that I was being considered for next season, but it just wouldn’t be possible.”

Her rep told E! News that the Jackson’s commitment to her Number Ones Up Close and Personal Tour and as well as a new Tyler Perry movie is the reason behind her passing on the show. But what’s even more interesting is the fact that Janet’s team claims they had “absolutely no meetings” with The X Factor in regards to a possible judging spot.
