Britney’s team of reps have been hard at work for the past few months, but it looks like all the blood, sweat and tears are about to be paid off. The pop princess has finally signed her contract to join Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid as a judge on “The X Factor”!
E! News exclusively confirmed that Spears inked her deal this week and she’ll get a whopping $15 million for one season. The 30-year-old pop culture icon reportedly agreed to the deal weeks ago and spent the last few days fine combing the contract.
An insider tells E! that both Britney Spears and Simon are very excited to work together. “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.”
Britney Spears’s “X Factor” gig will mark her return to network TV since her brief “Britney & Kevin: Chaotic” reality series. The “I Wanna Go” singer’s new judge title also makes her the highest paid judge on television.
Now we can’t wait for Fox to announce the fourth judge and host – possibly hosts – at the upfronts on Monday! Will it be Miley Cyrus? Demi Lovato?
