Listen to Ne-Yo on iHeartRadio

Rumors have been swirling that Ne-Yo has found a new gig as the newest judge on the American edition of X Factor.

Ne-Yo, who was on the U.K. edition of the show, is said to be one of the top choices since the exit of Britney Spears and music mogulL.A. Reid. And he seems to like his chances. He tells Extra“I think it would be a great, great thing. I don’t want to talk too much about it, because I don’t want to get in no trouble."

This wouldn't be Ne-Yo's first appearance on a U.S. singing competition -- he has coached and chimed in on NBC's The Voice.
