After months of speculation and hype, Britney Spears has finally confirmed rumours by signing up to judge the US ‘X Factor’.
The ‘Toxic’ hitmaker has reportedly penned a $15 million deal to be a judge on the talent show, alongside Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid after months of negotiations. A source close to the 30-year-old singer told E!: ”The contract is signed. 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 blonde beauty’s appointment comes after Simon fired former panellists Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, as well as host Steve Jones, earlier this year following the end of the show’s inaugural season.
Britney is said to be ”excited” about working with the music mogul, who has previously declared he would ”100 per cent” sign her up for the show given the chance.
It sounds as if we are in for another entertaining season of the hit show – let’s just hope there are no shaved heads involved!
