You wouldn't have predicted this years ago when we were such an image-infatuated business."Here is somebody who has done everything her own way, gone back to basics and achieved this incredible success."She's one of the most down-to-earth people you'll meet and she hasn't changed a bit."Should Adele sign up for the show she will join Simon and LA Reid on the panel.However, several stars, including Britney Spears, Beyoncé Knowles and Janet Jackson have also been linked to the vacant judges' positions.
