Britney Spears Possible Judge On ‘The X Factor’?
The name of pop singer Britney Spears has now been thrown into the ring. Spears is rumored to be a possible candidate for one of the empty positions as judge on The X Factor since the departure of both Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.
Per the Herald Sun, Britney is interested in the job, shared a friend of the singer. "She's a huge fan of The X Factor and thinks it's the perfect time for her to be a judge. She wants to show her fans she is back to her best and where better to do that than on national TV every week? She knows all about the ups and downs of pop fame. And with her schedule relatively clear she has the time to dedicate to a different project."
Discussing the media rumors and possibilities, Simon Cowell was evasive, but did drop a few hints during a recent interview. "Are we flattered that there could be interest? Yes”, he shared in regards to Britney Spears. Adding, that "there's a load of speculation, some true, some not true," when it comes to who will fill the void.
He "can't confirm or deny any of these rumors at the moment,” but “it's true to say that there a lot of more people have entered the frame this year. We were waiting to see who was going to contact us before we actually contacted people... We will meet a number of people over the next few weeks, mainly to explain to them that this is a big commitment when you do a show like this because of the mentoring aspect."
Fans will have to wait and see if Britney Spears' name is on the list since The X Factor’s Cowell and L.A. Reid won’t be revealing who the judges will be for a couple of weeks. "That will happen over the next few weeks," Simon said of the two females reportedly scheduled to take the reins of the two open slots. "I always wanted a boy and a girl to host the show, and I definitely think that's going to happen now," he also added.
Official word from Spears or her camp have yet to be reported.
