George Michael is set to be a judge on the Us version of 'The X Factor'
The 'Careless Whisper' hitmaker ' who was jailed earlier this year for driving under the influence of drugs and possession of cannabis ' reportedly sees show chief Simon Cowell's offer to join the panel as an opportunity to turn his career around and get his public image back on track.

A source said: "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 US as he is over here in the UK.

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

The 47-year-old star is believed to have been offered over £1 million to judge the show, with UK panellist Cheryl Cole also expected to appear.

Rolling Stones star Sir Mick Jagger and former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher have also been approached by Simon.

The source added to The Sun newspaper: "Simon is determined to have a panel of amazing judges.

"The show has to go off with a bang especially as Aerosmith frontman Steve Tyler will be on 'American Idol'."
