Britney Spears as we announced last month is to become a judge on the American X Factor show after grabbing herself a $15m deal. Although some in the music industry believe she is not the right person to be a judge on the X Factor with some believing she will not share her time with the contestants, Simon Cowell has battled with Fox bosses to make her his prime signing.
The new judge will appear at the Fox upfronts in New York on Monday where she will be officially unveiled as the new judge on The X Factor show.
Britney Spears signed the contracts last week but at this moment in time it is not clear if Simon Cowell got his way and got Britney to commit to at least two series of the X Factor.
Britney Spears has been campaigning to get Demi Lovato on the show as a fellow judge and according to sources on the show, Simon Cowell has agreed in principle to the young singer and actress to be a fellow judge on the show, although Chaka Khan is also trying to convince producers that they would be a great judge on the music show.
Simon Cowell is hoping with having such a huge name on the show that not only Britney Spears fans will tune in but also a larger audience than the first disappointing series. The X Factor judge wants to beat his old show, American Idol in the ratings but music experts believe this will not be achieved.
