We just love a bit of X Factor goss here at heatworld. So you can imagine our excitement when we heard that it looks like Britney Spears is going to appear as a judge on the next series of The X Factor USA.
The singer is said to have turned down a $10 million offer a month ago, but since the offer was upped to a whopping $15 million, she’s now keen to jump on board and is apparently in the final stages of the big money deal as we speak.
“Both camps were back and forth on the money but now they have finally come to agreement on the fee,” a source told E! Online.
“That was the big sticking point and now, thankfully, it's been sorted. All they need to do now is work out the smaller points. The fact the money is now set, means that there is nothing stopping this from becoming a reality.”
Britney’s fee will be even more than Jennifer Lopez’s impressive American Idol pay packet - $3 million more in fact.
Simon says... well not much actually
Simon hasn’t confirmed or denied this exciting news, but last month on Good Morning New York, he said: “You'll have to wait and see. I can't confirm or deny anything right now. The truth is, we are talking to a number of people.
“We're looking at a very famous singer and one very famous actress. You've got to talk to everybody,” he added cryptically.
So what do you think – will Britney make a good judge?
