It is reported that pop starlett Britney Spears has finally
signed on to become a judge on The X Factor. Music-News says that Brits had
been in negotiations for a while to join Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid on the
panel of the American singing competition series. And E! News has confirmed
that Britney will get $15 million for one season on the show. 'The contract is
signed,' a source close to the star told the site. "There's been a lot of
back and forth over the past few weeks as they negotiated the small details,
but she's on. It's all completed and Britney is beyond excited." The
vacancy came up at the end of the first season when Simon fired Paula Abdul,
Nicole Scherzinger and host Steve Jones. The fourth judge and a new presenter
for the show have not yet been agreed upon. "She's ready for this,"
the insider added about the mother-of-two's new post. "She can't wait to
sit down next to Simon at the judges' table and give this everything she's got.
She is excited about showing the world that she can do this, and do this well.
This is the perfect next stage in her career. Both Britney and Simon are very
excited to work together."
