After months and months (and months) of speculation, reports are emerging that Britney Spears’ appointment on The X Factor USA has been confirmed.
E! Online says that the star has finally signed the dotted line on a contract worth $15 million.
Says a show source:
“She’s ready for this. She can’t wait to sit down next to Simon at the judges’ table and give this everything she’s got. She is excited about showing the world that she can do this, and do this well. This is the perfect next stage in her career. Both Britney and Simon are very excited to work together.”
No official press statement has arrived from the show yet, though E! seems to think that will follow very soon.
Demi Lovato is thought to be the frontrunner to join Spears, Simon Cowell and LA Reid on the panel, whilst Miley Cyrus is allegedly in talks to host.
Let’s hope this one doesn’t massively backfire on her. If she thinks she’s under a lot of media scrutiny now…
