Britney Spears Approached By Simon Cowell To Judge ‘The X Factor (US)’

Britney Simon Britney Spears Approached By Simon Cowell To Judge The X Factor (US)

Has Britney Spears been tapped by Simon Cowell to judge the next season of ‘The X Factor (US)’?

According to Cowell himself the answer is ‘yes’!

Read the full details concerning the former-barefoot-bathroom-walker possibly earning a seat at season two’s judge’s table after the jump and sound-off below.

Cowell briefly chatted with Billy Bush of ‘The Billy Bush Show’ where he was asked directly about Spears’ qualifications for the role. The ‘King of Mean’ responded, “I’m fascinated by [Britney.] The fact that she’s one of the most talked about – not just pop stars – but people in the world today, means that you’ve got this star power.” He later added, “I would think that if she’s managed to sustain a family, a career, which is tough, [‘X Factor’ would be] a walk in the park. She’s still hot, she’s still having hit records and she’s still controversial, there’s a reason for that.”

While there’s no denying Britney Spears arguably has the greatest pop star career of anyone post-2000, how much of that [post-2006] can truly be said was thanks to her? Lets put this into perspective. The 30-year-old has been an active recording artist since 1998. In 2006 she suffered a metal breakdown that she has never fully able to bounce back from. For most of the latter half of her career the ‘Crazy’ singer has had very little involvement in her artistry whatsoever and appears to be very content with not being the “ringleader”.

Furthermore, Spears doesn’t have the musicianship nor personality (as of lately) to offer any constructive criticism to ‘X Factor”s singing hopefuls, let alone to make good TV once her new car smell wears off. As seen with most of her promotional interviews and TV spots during the promotion of ‘Circus’ and ‘Femme Fatale’…the lights are on but there’s no one home.

    most of what was said in this post can also be said of nicole scherzinger & kelly rowland- both of which have been involved with x-factor. the point simon was making is that britney is a star- that is not an opinion, the market has proven that. despite supposed ‘lack of involvement’ or ‘lack of musicanship’ she instantly became an icon before she even turned 20. her years in the game give her the know-how.

    I like the idea of Britney being a judge. She has def earned the right. But I wont be watching.

    It’s all about THE VOICE!!

    Simon is finished. People are tired of these gimmick shows. If you’re still even watchig American idol you’re lame. Yes I said it.

    Brit is a bad choice, nit bc she is an average,vat best now, singer but bc she would bring nothing to the show. She was a mega star, yes n name us still big, but she hasn’t had personality or even really spoke since her melt down. She hasn’t even had a hOld on her music career to help guide others. She is a puppet to her label, so how can shehelp some craft if she doesn’t craft her own career

    This site is dumb Britney has had a lot of input in her artistry she has co-wrote various songs, wrote songs for.other artists and has written songs and for herself e.g. Everytime. And plus it int even she has choregraphed for some of her videos e.g. piece of me and plus being a talent show judge isn’t all about artistry look at judges like Louis Walsh, Simon, Ellen degeneras, Sharon Osbourne…… It’s also about being able to spot talent/potential in a artist and just knowing about the music industry……. do your homework TGJ ….. Your jus hating on brit

    Simon, It doesn’t mean that The Voice is working just because they have Christina Aguilera will automatically mean X-Factor will work with Britney Spears on it. It’s all about flatform and the Voice has the best flatform compare to AI and X. That is actually the main reason why The Voice is working. Although I love to see britney on TV regularly, if i wer her i won’t do it.. Not with X-Factor.

    BTW, Simon is getting Boring and is overrated thats another reason why his show is not working anymore.
