With two empty spots at the X Factor judging table to fill, Simon Cowell is desperately seeking judges to fill the vacant positions held by Britney Spears and L.A. Reid, and one of the potential contenders is Ne-Yo.

While chatting with Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet of last night’s Grammy Awards, Ne-Yo confirmed that he’s been approached about appearing on the Fox talent competition, but talks are still in the early stages.

“It’s conversation,” he said. “Nothing is set in stone right yet. It’s talks.”

If he does wind up sitting next to Simon, Ne-Yo will bring plenty of experience to the table, as he’s already been a judge on the U.K. edition of The X Factor.
