Britney Spears and the X Factor

The X Factor has offered pop princess Britney Spears $10 million to be a judge on Simon Cowell’s show the X Factor. This was after firing judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger along with host Steve Jones. This has all been done by the Fox Network to create a big splash before the start of the second season of X Factor.

Britney is not happy with $10 million and wants more and reports have it that she might sign if she were offered in the range of $20M. Fox needs to get some big names to do the judging in an effort to compete with the likes of NBC that has shelled out $10M and more to Christina Aguilera to judge the second season of the rival show “The Voice” that premiered after the Super Bowl.

The two shows will be competing against each other in the fall and the X Factor wants Britney who has other ideas of what she wants to do in the fall. It appears that she wants to take up an offer to be a resident performer at a hotel in Las Vegas.

The icon who shot to fame with the hit “Baby One More Time” is actually doing some media training and will find it to her benefit to do something like X Factor that would provide her with a free forum. Right now, according to multiple reports, it appears that the Spears camp is coming close to a deal that would have her sit on the judge’s panel. She definitely has the star power and I am sure fans would love to see her on TV.
