Britney Spears is one of the stars consistently mentioned whenever gossip about "The X Factor" begins to spread, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, Spears could be close to sealing a deal to judge.
Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid have said that they're likely going to add two women to the "X Factor's" judging panel, now that Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul are off the show.
Spears, along with Katy Perry, LeAnn Rimes and Janet Jackson, has been part of the circling rumors about who could potentially fill the empty spots since "The X Factor's" shake-up in January.
Now, a "well-placed source" has reportedly told the Hollywood Reporter that Spears' fiance, Jason Trawick, is negotiating a contract for the 30-year-old pop star to sign on with Cowell and Reid. According to Deadline, there's a reported $10 million offer on the table, and THR notes that the rumored negotiations could be worked out by next week.
A rep for the Fox show declined to confirm the reports or comment.
Even if Spears does join the reality competition, there's still another vacant seat on the judges' panel, and it doesn't look like it would go to Janet Jackson - she said last month that while she was "flattered" to be considered, she couldn't commit.
That is a really good tip particularly to those new to the blogosphere.
Simple but very precise information
Thank you for sharing this one.
A must read article!
Thank you for another fantastic post. Where else may just anyone get that type of information in such an ideal manner of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I am at the look for such information.
some of you are incredible, just by thinking that if you make money means that you are good???? Ms. Spears is a terrible singer, an ok dancer and a crazy person but still makes money cause there are so many stupid people out there willing to buy her music and going to her shows. She doesn't make money cause she's good, she makes money cause her fans are idiots!
Britney is the peeeerfect replacement for Abdul!!!! LeeAnn would be an excellent counterpart/harsher. Do it, Simon!
Britney has rejected the X Factor deal:
Couldn't they get the guy from Milli Vanilli?
Britney Spears? Judging talent? HAAAAAAAA! You're joking, right? HAAAAAAAA OMG, that's a good one!
Too bad they can't get Madonna – she'd be fabulous and could hold her own with Simon.
Who,s Britney Spears?
If she even knew what key pepole were singing in, I agree, that simple...........
Just the thought makes me want to vomit. If she becomes one of the judges, I will not watch. She has zero talent and it would take a heck of a nerve to put her in a position of judging others who are more talented than she is.
If they select this washed-up junkie nutcase, I'm done watching the X-Factor! They'd have to be desperate to hire her! But, no matter whom they select, Simon Cowell will still be the only one on the panel who tells the truth, and who can make an intelligent comment. (Except for that dreadful, warbling "Drew" person he was supporting last season–YUK!)
Britney is as dumb as you get!
Well, there is Mitt Romney,,,,so let's call a tie for as dumb as you can get.
Spears??? Please! If you want a major female singer on the show as a judge then offer it to Lady Gaga. Yeah she dresses strange, but at least she can sing without sounding like a cat that's being run through a meat grinder.
I agree, Britney stinks. But Lady Gaga is in way too much demand and waaaay too expensive to get as a judge on a talent show. I'd vote for Janet Jackson, but she's very sweet and might be too kind.
Britney, go make new babies one more time...Oops, she'll do it again..why do I feel this toxic?
Britney? Don't make me laugh...well, a talentless idiot judging other talentless idiots to be! LOL
Of the four mentioned, I think Janet Jackson would make the best judge by leaps and bounds. She's been in the entertainment industry for years and years, she has the most pure talent (with which there are also multi-talents), her name is legendary, and people would tune in by the millions because there are generations of people who grew up watching her, and listening to her music.
toss in Li Lo and i'd be down
Shouldn't having talent yourself be considered a prerequisite for judging talent shows?:
She's an idiot.....and Cowell is not..................IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. THIS IS SPEARS CAMP SPINNING FOR PUBLICITY.
Don't you need to have talent to judge talent?
I don't think I will watch X-Factor when it returns. I'm not going to say anything more. They got rid of the wrong folks. Loved Paula and tolerated Nicole.
I liked Paula too and am glad Nicole is gone. Too bad they can't get Madonna to replace Paula.
Well I didn't like Xfactor anyway, and Britney Speers will end my watching it.
She's still too famous yet. Give it about 10 more years, she'll be perfect.
That's all this show needs, to jump the shark in the second season.
The Voice rules!!!
Yeah like shes goint to say no.She stopped being relevant a decade ago. She'd do that show for $100. $10 mil is a gift.
Britney sings like a chipmunk herself and she is going to judge talent? ROFL
Yes I know she is laughing all the way to the bank, but talent she doesn't have.
Stamina is important on this show so I suspect that rules out Tony Bennett (who's 84 or 85). Personally, I'd go with Adele and Bono. If not Bono, then Little Stevie Van Zandt.
URGENT – Please read more about VERIZON. Things they don't want the public to know! I was tormented by racial comments that were ignored, then racially discriminated against and wrongfully terminated for making complaints about the racial injustice.
Please visit my Blog Page to see what Verizon did to my family. What they have done to my family, and continue to do is horrific. Today they still will not accept responsibility. So I will not stop this FIGHT for JUSTICE! It has been 8 years and I refuse to give up!
You can read my stories about what VERIZON did to my family by GOOGLING:
• “Verizon Raped My Family – Cover Letter”
• “Verizon Raped My Family – Press Release”
• “Verizon Raped My Family – Requesting Criminal Punishment”
From there you can access the other letters through the recent post.
I am a man who has stood up against racism, discrimination, bullying, harassment, hostile environment, belittlement, threats, and retaliation, all while working for Verizon Communications, as they conspired to terminate me.
I am a man who is trying to hold his family together while in the process of trying to fight for my rights to be heard. I am a man who has brought up his family on morals, discipline, character, hard work, dedication and conviction to believe that good things happen to good people. I am a man who could not be more proud of my family for all their trust and faith in my conviction. I am man who is a proud servant in my community and deserves to be heard, as I am begging for JUSTICE!
I have learned that: “If you have no Money, A lot of Power, unlimited amount of Connection and resources, you have no chance at receiving justice within our country!
Even though I know this to be true, that justice of only for the few, I refuse to allow Verizon to beat me! I will fight them until I die. I will never give up, I will let the world know of the abuse I suffered and the lack of justice I have received.

Hooray for Verison!
Who is Britney Spears?
This band rocks! I gave the lead guitarist a hummer backstage at a recent show. I would do anything for these guys!! That's how I got my name... Kneel and Bob!! Anyway, gotta run. One of my buddies Ben just stopped by....Ben Dover! Late u fairies!
reveal yourself you imposter
The Skaflaws – from Santa cruz
Dump the broad.
Nothing compares to American Idol, this show is a family show, with kind hearted judges. This season I am enjoying American Idol every second. The contestants are unique , the girls have beautiful voices.
I love this show so much, I would do anything for the contestants...especially the dudes! I will polish up the rods of any gay boy! Bring it on...let me give them a lil treat. I am gonna bend these dudes over a table and pack dat fudge!!
she will be great for the show, having two egomaniacs ( Kim and SImon) in the same show will make it more interesting, since they both would be fighting like cats and dogs and neither one will have anything constructive to say to the contestants.
she has no common sense since she married this annoying Britt . Katy Perry is good for nothing.
Britney is going to show the contestants her private parts since she is good on doing so.
By the way , all British people move back to England. Period.
I think that she will be a terrible judge.What does she know about talent she doesn't have any.
She going to teach the contestants how to lip sync?? Missing Paula terribly!!
YOU ALL NEED TO LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE AND GO STRAIGHT TO HELL YOU AINT MAKING NO MONEY SO STOP HATING
You all can go straight to that fiery place down under...I be rockin ALL CAPS cuz it seems like I am yellin really loud at you punks! Just cuz I am a butt pirate and luv to pump all dem gayboyz in da rump, doesn't mean I can't pop off! I wanna pack sum fudge!!
Thanks for sharing, Evel.
I'm sick to death of some of you Americans slagging off the Brits – and that means (because we all know that you know no other vernacular than your own hick) insulting us. If telling the truth to a young aspiring singer makes them do better in life, then what is wrong with that exactly? It is not bullying – a word you love to use whenever anyone tells it as it is. It is called being honest – remember that concept? No, maybe not, in many respects you are such a plastic ra ra society, cheering on every bloody little thing and doing nobody any good at all; everyone great at everything; a standing ovation for all. Only an idiotic, uneducated, unaware imbecile could think that what Simon Cowell says or Piers Morgan for that matter on America's got talent, is intended to bring harm these contestants. Honesty simply males these kids strive to be better. I suppose you would love four Nicole Sherzinger's tearing up and telling everyone how they transcended space and time with their off key warbling? These shows have the word reality in it for a reason. Brits for the most part are far more discerning than your culture when it comes to interacting with people in any respect; we tend to say it to your face rather than going all around the houses being overly politically correct because you're too scared to offend anybody. Stop cheapening the word 'bullying' and save it for your foreign policy and domestic squabbles that we all see on America's Most Wanted. Try telling the truth for once, in your daily lives too; you might get a better education about what aspiration is all about. The saying 'Only in America' exists for a reason; for the most part you are a laughing stock to the rest of the world and I blame home-schooling, the blind leading the frikkin' blind from the atrocious examples of what I've seen. A large part of your society is brainwashed in the same way that Middle Eastern's are – except you go under the guise of civility – nothing civil about living false lives and giving false praise. Idiots. But that's all right, I guess, God has a reason for all American's being on reality shows, regardless of where they place; everything simply DIVINE. Get real – and by the way, Britney, unless she has matured any since the debacle of her last reality show, would absolutely suck at this. Follow the example of your homeboy L.A. Reid who most definitely could be British and start telling the truth.
Blah blah blah. Blather blather blather. You're just a wa nker anyway.
You're not a Palin, you're just a twit.
Jezus h christ, I actually agree with palintwit. Someone take my temperature.
Hmmm... now THAT'S better; all you have to do now is apply that kind of frankness and honesty on the other side of your computer personas – even if you do feel too inferior to present a rational comeback.
They are mean because they know they are ugly in and out. Their diet is the worse. Go back to England you ignorant.
That's bloody right! I am an intelligent, well-spoken bloke and I will continue to belittle you with my verbose statements! In Britain, we laugh at your bad television and pity your mind numbing entertainment. Your kids are fat due to Happy Meals, with little parental oversight. This leads to future generations of unhealthy, unprepared young adults. Suk it you freaks!!
Ugly Brits go home, now'
So sorry, I dozed off reading your novel. Could you repeat that, please?
Okay, I'm going to sit back and laugh at your comment. First of all, shows like The X Factor, American Idol, America's Got Talent and so on, originated in the UK. They are just offshoots of Britain's Got Talent and so forth. Secondly, I lived in the UK and you all have just as many KFC's, MC Donald's, Pizza Hut's, Dominos and more as the US. And guess what? Brits just like yourself spend thousands of quids on Big Macs as Americans do. Point blank. Next, you may have some intelligent folks where you are at, but there are idiots in every nationality, race, ethnic group , religion and gender. Stupidity sees no boundaries, just like intelligence doesn't see boundaries. And quite frankly, you SWalker are a friggin idiot, who needs a few lessons in seeing the world. Yes, many countries do not like the way our government does things, but if you are so independent, then tell Cameron to quit playing kissing cousins with Obama and grow a pair. I bet your government won't do that and will follow whatever we do with a smile on their face. But just because there are a few half brained dimwits who live in my country, quit lumping the rest of us under that category. Because some of us have brains in our heads and have no qualms to tell you to pound sand.
She's a Fraud and can't sing at all. She is an uneducated tramp that has scammed everyone.
She has a decent voice, she just tends to lip synch like a lot of other singers. She DID sing her songs though, you can't say someone "can't sing" just because they don't feel comfortable singing live. Millions of people still enjoyed her songs.
She would probably be a horrible judge on X factor though, don't know what the producers are thinking ...
I hope they allow her to pre-record and lipsinc her coments
Makes sense an irrelivent show hires an irrelivent artist(use loosley)! Personally i would have done lindsay lohan she has spent so much time in court lately she would probably make a good judge!
Why her?? shes gone through alot of troubles and she has bad tastes of music by the way. so i prefer janet jackson
There is not other show who can compete with American Idol. Regarding X Factor, and the Voice they are very mediocre shows.
thats so true...... i would prefer the american idol then the others
How about you go play in traffic?
You iz big talker! How about I stuff that fat mouth of yours with my big ol jig-a-boo meat stik!!
Are you serious? She flashed her bev to the whole world and now she will be paid to be a judge on some useless show? (scratches both heads)
X-Factor, hmmmmm. I would think they need judges,one who knows the industry. Someone who can make sound decisions, not unbelievable decisions and one who doesnt cry. POP stars? Oh well. Whatever.
he is not a good person, he is meand-spirited man. You can be a good judge without being a bully.
Meh, never watched any of them.
Having Simon Cowell in this show is enough reason for me not to watch this show. In my opinion he is a big ugly bully man.
I am enjoying every second of the new American Idol judges, I never liked before when Simon Cowel and Paula Adbul ( the crazy woman) were there, now I love Jennifer Lopez and the rest of the judges. They are great together.
Are those recent winners of AI doing anything great right now? Didn't think so.
I iz a flamin fairy that luvs to get pounded in da cornholio. I will pack your fudge and then schlob your knob!! I be luvin dat salty spooo!
It seems no one has been to a Britney Spears concert lately. She sings live for about 70% of her perfomance, and X factor is not just about singing is about dancing and other talents.
DEAR GOD, NO!!!! Spears has NO business judging ANYONE. The girl can't sing to begin with and likely has nothing of value to add to the judging panel. I can't possibly see her mentoring some poor group of hopefuls. The thought of that is just frightening. If she signs on for this I definitely won't be watching X Factor anymore.
britney is definitely worth more than jlo and xtina combined. she's sold more than 100M records. IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT THE SINGING. IT'S ABOUT STAR POWER, LONGEVITY IN THE INDUSTRY AND BEING RELEVANT. britney is all that. congrats britney no matter how people try to bring u down still to rise like the phoenix. u go girl!
Britney Spears, will need to take her medication every time she is on the show, otherwise, she will be back to her Pink wig, no underwear and acting crazy in public.
Madonna, she is too old and unattractive and her egos are bigger than Simon Cowel.
Janet Jackson, give me a break, that women is so plastic, she can hardly smile, to ugly.
spears can't and never could sing. she can dance but she cannot sing.
Yeah!!! Cowell is genius!!
Good grief! For 10,000,000.00 I"LL judge the damn show!
First, you need to learn how to articulate yourself. Your Charlie Brown comment is lame and your posturing is pathetic!! It makes me wanna pound your coochie with my big ol dong!!
Do they realize that she relly cannot sing. She linsyncs at all of her concerts. I have a friend who works the concerts. Just another pretty face and a sham.
I think she'd be really sweet! I would like to see her do it. I've always liked miss Brit.
The big question is... does she know how to sing? Hahahaha!
No she can't. I hear she licks a mean d!ck, though.
I am a flamin fairy! I love to polish da knobs of gayboyz!! Any of you fruits wanna hook up and pound each other silly? I got a 3 incher just waitin to tap your plump rump!!
The other girls were kicked out because they could not deliver on a Producer level and looked shallow with LA Reid and Simon's comments.
Here's a thought list –
*Janet – Good w/ lots of experience
* Madonna – Good w/ lots of experience
* Katy Perry – Still has to prove her longevity – premature
* LeAnn Rimes – Understand the country angle, but I'd go with someone more seasoned
* Lady Gaga – Possibility, but she's probably too creative to take the job
* Mary J Blige – She'd kill it with vocal training, but may lack in choreography
* Blondie – too old?
* Gwen Stephanie – Has the experience and credentials
* Linda Perry – Great history as a producer, sound engineer, singer, song writer
* Fergie – Could handle the hip hop aspect. Questionable on voice training
What are your thoughts on the 2 females for X Factor?
Britney – Not sure about the voice training. Too much studio work in her music.
I wll prefer to watch a better looking person, Janet Jackson looks soo old with fake boobs and so much plastic surgery to her body that will be distracting to the show.
Fergie questionable on voice training? Are you kidding me? That woman has an INCREDIBLE voice.
how about amy winehouse
If that dumb blonde becomes a judge I will NOT watch the show! Stopped watching Idol when 'alleged singer' JLo became a judge.
These Kardashian sisters will do anything for fame. They can not act, can not sing, nor do anything useful, but I bet they will be willing to be on the X factor just for the exposure. Kim could marry Simon for few months, two bigger egos and greedy people are perfect.
Isn't Simon gay?
no no brittany you will lose ratings cant stand j low she is so fake why dont she stay home and take care of her kids
Are you dumb? Lopez is on american idol, this thread is about x factor. I do appreciate both sets of their cans, though.
I would suck the life out of both of their a**'s
If you are going to do that you might as well go ahead a try filching them both as well.
wxyz factor- i am tired of white folk robbing blacks blind using every word with cameras and surveillance illegal court battles to claim yout names and copyright- wxyz -belongs to doris jean mosley – check mmy spot in new york
White folk? I'm so tired of white people all being made out to be racist. Black people are so much more racist. Black people always have to bring race into everything.......STOP
wow, you're an IDIOT... i've never posted on one of these threads before but made an exception just to tell you how pathetic you are.
You iz one crazy jig-a-boo cooon!! I bet u got a copyright on every letter in da alphabet, huh? I told dem fools dat "Q Factor" was gonna be a big hit!! Back off fooolz!!! Doris iz the next big thang!
I got a big secret! I iz a lez-bo!! I will grab my monster-sized jiggy strap-on dil-do and ram your plump rump!! -Doris
Nobody else wants the job, do u blame them? Had to settle for brit, nothing else. These shows need to go.just saying
American Idol is way much better than any other show. Jennifer, Randy and Steven are the best, they give constructive critic to the contestants. Jennifer is so beautiful and kind.
Great, a blonde younger version of Paula.
Don't like any of these as judges. Stopped watching Idol due to JLo. Judges can make or break the show.
In the past when Simon Cowel was a judge at American Idol, I hated the show and hated Simon, he is a bully...now that he is gone, I love watching American Idol. The Judges are great, especially Jennifer Lopez, she is great and a beautiful lady. We, do not need a bully person such as Simon Cowel denigrating our young people.
Simon had to be the tough guy. He was real, unlike some of the other judges. They do too much sugarcoating. Their standards for performance were so low that... quite honestly, look at the winners in the past few years...
Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood are doing pretty well... but who was one of the judges at those times? Simon Cowell. Notice how those two are still successful and making it big while the rest have just sputtered.
So was Paula Abdul a judge for those seasons. So, what's your point?
Paula was filler. She doesn't really count. People wanted to do well for Simon so they stepped up their game.
I agree with Had Enough – AI sucks and its mostly due to J LO – she is absolutely useless. How can someone who is a terrible singer judge other singers ??? :(
You've fallen an hit your head. J-Lo was smokin hot on Thurs nite show. If your capable of actual listening and understanding.....she does have useful advice for the contestants.
Simon is not cute or pleasant, however, he usually is just there to tell people the truth...once and if those stars to be become professional show peeps, they'll get worse critique then Simon could do on steroids...look at how adel got trashed...or britney, or Madonna...anyone, really. Part of the job. Nobody wants showbiz vanilla...I mean, there's always opera for playing nice
Yep. Me too. Randy & Steven are OK but J Lo and her huge ego are a deal killer for me. No more American Idol.
If Britney joins X Factor, I'm done w/that show too. She can't sing and is only famous because she strips down on her videos & shimmies her a$$ around.
I understand Britney and more so, Janet Jackson; they have some years under their belt giving them the capacity to judge. BUT Katy Perry is entirely too new to have that much experice where she can judge others on how to be a star, she's got a ways to go.
LeAnn Rimes? Dont we want the winner's or contestant's to be successful in the long run? My opinion.
i agree that both Britney and Janet are perfect choices for X judges but not for the experience reasons you give but because they are both "Has-Beens" and nobody listens to them anymore so they fit the bill just like Paula and Nicole ... but Katy is still popular and on the charts so it would not be a good career move for her.
She might be a decent judge. I don't know if she can handle Simon Cowell or the other judges at all, though.
after she exposed her private parts to the media, she is yesterday's news. She is as crazy and big ego as Simon Cowell, if she gets the job , I hope she does not arrives to work drunk or and drugs.
Considering the show comprises of hasbeens or stuck up brits as judges, she fits perfectly.
So ... let me get this straight: X Factor fired a dopey, ditzy, giggly, sickeningly sweet judge who would never offer real critique to a contestant in fear of hurting their feelings named Paula Abdul, in favor of hiring Britney Spears? The only difference between these women is their hair color.
Isn't that just changing out a brunette for a blonde?
she can't even lip sing properly.
Not that I watch tv, but I hope to go on YouTube and see exactly this! Wasted britney giving advice to people who do have voice and are in shape on how to sing and stay fit. That's gonna be oh so funny.
They should also invite lindsey and provide open bar for both! Now, that's the show worth suffering through commercials:)))
He was Begging For this one to.
What stupid move that would be!!! Why do they want that sleeze? Might as well get Lindsey, then, too. LOL That will be the end of THAT show.
She's actually a terrible singer – its known that her vocals are very weak- its all produced in the audio studio – and she got her start with Disney but, it was Christina Aguilera that was the good singer....she was just an excellent Marketing muse for the record labels. when she preforms its all pre-recorded from the studio and she just needs to mi-mic the song on stage.
She would be a terrible judge -- Please find a women singer that actually writes and sings her own songs! We need a real talent as a judge! Dolly Parton, Celine Dion, to name a few...any suggestions...a popular women singer that's awesome and could lend her opinion and guidance-
Britney and then one of these guys would make a great show.
It`s lip sync!
