Britney Spears: 'X Factor' Judging Deal in the Works?

Britney Spears is nearing a deal to be a judge on next season of The X Factor, THR reports.

The 30-year-old pop princess was reportedly approached by Simon Cowell, who created the show and serves as a judge alongside L.A. Reid as well.

THR reports that Britney‘s fiance, Jason Trawick, is negotiating the contract and that it could be signed as early as next week.

The X Factor underwent a shakeup after last season – host Steve Jones and judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul are all being replaced.

WOULD YOU BE MORE LIKELY to watch The X Factor if Britney Spears were a judge?

@[~Fug Face Man!ston~]: Yes! I want that Brit. She has radically changed :(

@Greg: YES Cheryl would be AWESOME !

Hello , is she awake? @ 03/09/2012 at 12:35 pm

If jlo can do it Britney can too. But she has to stop taking sedatives and other downers.

@brian: Never mind can’t tven singing. She’s brain dead. An fugly.

I’m glad Brit will be on the show. also, glad that anyone ANYONE ELSE will be on the show, just NOT LEANN THE GRINCH FACE RIMES. WILL STOP WATCHING IF HER FUGLY PUSS SHOWS UP ON THE SHOW

News flash: Britney Spears is one of the most famous and successful female stars in the WORLD! She actually has a really good voice, very unique, pure and full of soul. She chooses to lip sync because her voice is not very strong live while dancing. To be honest, I’d rather hear that over another singer’s obnoxious loud droning voice. So what if she doesn’t sing live? She still consistently makes better songs than any other female singer out there. She has the X-factor, which is what Simon is looking for, so she is the perfect choice for a judge.

I can’t take it! And, I would never watch that show.

she know about the bussnisses, and that x factor need, she is a pop legend, yes she is not good singer, her dance cam be better yes, she can help to all these wanna be becouse she knows …

now that i got only one thing why i might watch x factor!!

Good gig! Good for her. Girl is gonna make bank!

Honestly, I don’t think it quite matters whether or not a person is qualified to be a judge. As long as they have the potential to up the ratings, then they’re in the running for the position. @Comical:

And how does one ‘express’ themselves ‘properly?’

@Lynn:

@Sherri:

Yes you’re right. I’ve actually made the following statement to others before and on more than one occasion..”it’s a tv show first and a singing competition second”.

The X Factor isn’t really focused soley on the singing(as Chris Rene made it to the top 3 last year). It is focused on finding someone with that “it” or “x” factor. Britney obvioulsy has it, seeing as she’s a pop superstar. Would she be a good judge? I don’t know. But she does know a thing ortwo about success based on having the x factor.

yay! i’d actually watch if she was on!
finally a legitimately successful music artist with longevity and staying power.
not saying that judges like xtina and paula abdul haven’t enjoyed thier success, but britney is the only judge out of all others that has left their mark on the music industry.
hope this happens

How funny !!! Hahaha Britney on talent show?

OMG, I WOULD NOT MISS ONE EPISODE IF BRITNEY WAS ON THERE, SHE IS THE POP PRINCESS AND SHE IS AMAZING!!!

@brian: NO ONE COMPARES TO BRITNEY!, SHE HAS SHOWN THE WORLD HER TALENT, WHAT SHE HAS IS RARE AND SIMON KNOWS IT, SHE DRAWS PEOPLE TO HER, PEOPLE LOVE HER, SHE IS SO TALANTED, SAW HER IN CONCERT, NO BODY DOES IT BETTER.

@brian: @Talent: WHATS SO FUNNY, BET YOU NEVER BEEN TO A CONCERT OF HERS, SHE HAS THE CROUD UNDER A SPELL THE ENTIRE TIME, SHE IS AMAZING!

@brian: @Dana: I HAVE BEEN TO HER CONCERTS, WITH ALL THE ENERGY SHE PUTS OUT DOING A SHOW, SHE COULD JUST STAND THERE AND SING BUT WITH A SHOW OF HER KIND YOU HAVE TO DO WHAT IT TAKES TO GET IT DONE, SHE IS NOT JUST A SINGER SHE PUTS ON A SHOW!

Turns out that this is NOT true. She is NOT going to be the judge, AND her wedding has even been cancelled. Wake up people. Wake up Jared and print the real news.

Love Britney!! Can’t wait to hear her comments and to see her face in the television!! Love Britney Forever!!

I hope britney gets it….if only to piss off christina haguilera on that re-re show the voice – when the x-factor starts beating it in the ratings!!! xtina looks more n more like cyndi lauper these days……..the 80s cyndi lol…….whitney was true singer who hit those notes not screaming xtina or mariah…..britney can sing but prefers to do shows with back-up……her prerogative and makes for a great show…..and when she sings ballads…….shes good.

thank u………
