Sadly, on Saturday, Feb. 11, Whitney Houston’s publicist broke news that the Grammy-winning singer had died at the age of 48.

But in the wake of her passing, Simon Cowell confirmed “The X Factor” rumors on “Piers Morgan Tonight” on Saturday, via The Hollywood Reporter:

“One of the names we were going to be talking about in [a Monday] meeting as a possible mentor on the new series of ‘X Factor’ was going to be Whitney Houston … Given the choice, I would have liked to have taken her under my wing as well, because she would have been the ultimate, ultimate mentor to any contestant coming on the show … She was undoubtedly the greatest superstars [sic] of all time. One of the greatest voices in our time we’re likely ever to hear.”
