Miley Cyrus Turned Down X Factor USA 2012 Before Britney Spears or Demi Lovato Accepted?
Would Miley Cyrus have taken the place of Britney Spears or Demi Lovato if she would have said yes to becoming a judge for the 2012 season of X Factor USA?
Miley has claimed she turned down a judging role on 'The X Factor' USA and she says she could not have participated as she didn't want to be a ''dream crusher''.
The 19-year-old singer was approached by Simon Cowell's team about joining the talent show as a panelist, but she rejected the role because she doesn't believe she would have been able to criticize the contestants' singing even if they sounded like ''nails on a chalkboard''.
She said: ''I just don't know if I want to be some dream crusher.
''Would you really want to sit there as someone is belting their heart out - even if it is like hearing nails on a chalkboard - and then say to them, 'You suck?' ''
Miley admits she was ''scared'' of being too critical to a young wannabe which could land her with a reputation for being ''harsh''.
She is quoted as saying: ''I have no filter, so I would be scared I would say something and they would go home and say, 'Miley Cyrus ruined my dreams'. It seems harsh.''
After 'The Climb' hitmaker - who was also linked to replacing Steve Jones as the host of the series - turned down an 'X Factor' judging position, Simon appointed Britney Spears and Demi Lovato to replace departing judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, who is now a panelist on the UK version of the show.
