George MichaelMusic mogul Simon Cowell has shot down reports George Michael is set to join him as a judge on the U.S. version of The X Factor.
 
The Faith hitmaker was rumoured to be preparing to make his comeback with a central role on the reality TV show after he was spotted in a meeting with The X Factor creator Cowell in November.
 
But Cowell has dismissed the speculation, telling "Extra" TV presenter Terri Seymour, "(Michael) will not be a judge on the U.S. The X Factor".
 
The TV job was expected to mark Michael's return to the spotlight following a series of personal woes, which recently saw him serve time behind bars for driving under the influence of drugs.
