There is a big chance Britney Spears will be the next judge on the hit TV show The X Factor. According to Deadline Hollywood, the pop star has been offered $ 10 million to join Simon Cowell on the second season. Spears will be replacing first-season judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.
What does the creator of the show think about all this? In an interview on The Billy Bush Show radio program last month, Cowell expressed his interest in the idea and the pop star. He said, “Yes, I’m fascinated by Britney. The fact that she’s one of the most talked about — not just pop stars but people — in the world today, means that you’ve got this star power.” Cowell went on to say that Spears has resilience, and commented that since she’s been able to manage a career and a family, being a judge on The X-Factor would be a “walk in the park.” He added that there is a reason why she’s still “hot” and making records.
If she takes the position, Spears will be joining a list of stars including Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Lopez, according to Deadline Hollywood. The article states that Lopez received $12 million on American idol last season.
