Simon Cowell has now decided the Faith hitmaker would be perfect as a panellist on his latest TV talent show venture, according to Britain's The Sun.

A source tells the publication, "George is going to take the job. It's an amazing opportunity to get back in the limelight and reverse his recent bad spell. Simon knows that Americans love him. He is as big in the U.S. as he is over (in the U.K.).

"He is a true star and has the wit and experience for the job. It's the perfect platform to resurrect his career."
