London, Mar 13 (ANI): After taking the audience by storm with Britney Spears' performance, X factor boss Simon Cowell is planning to bring in king of pop Michael Jackson to the show.
While Jacko prepares for his 'last ever' shows in London's O2 arena, Cowell has made it his priority to get him on the show.
"Britney was a massive coup for Cowell. But he's determined to raise the bar even higher and secure Jacko's services," the Mirror quoted a source as saying.
"He is perhaps one of the few artists who could outshine Britney.
"The only sticking point is that while Britney had her new album to promote, Jacko's shows have sold out in minutes and don't necessarily need the publicity.
"But Cowell won't let that stop him. He is determined to get his man," the source added.
Spears' appearance on The X Factor pulled in millions of viewers.
"Jackson has nothing to prove when it comes to appearing on a show like The X Factor but anything is possible and they are quietly confident," said the source. (ANI)
