After a successful stint in the Pussycat Dolls, Melody Thornton is striking out solo.

It’s a path, it seems, has the talented singer keen to make a lasting impression.

Sporting a see-through, flesh-coloured dress (which bared her breasts), Thornton turned many a head.

The terms Britney Spears and “dance” are an oxymoron these days, yet that hasn’t stopped the one-time stage-slayer from capitalising on the talent she left lodged in 2003.

Spears, whose inability to do a basic 8-count these days is well-documented, supposedly “danced up a storm” as she shot the commercial for the new Twister Dance game yesterday.

Speaking of her partnership with Twister, the 30 year old said:

“As soon as I saw the new Twister Dance game, I knew I wanted to be involved. I think kids will love rocking the spots and dancing to the music as much as my boys and I do. It’s a lot of fun!”

Kudos to Britney for continually stacking her “coin”.

That said, as ardent appreciators of what she “had”, we just hope her post-album downtime helps restore what made her a legitimate superstar, rather than the one certain pockets of the media insist she still is. Thinking about it, that rumoured X Factor USA judging slot may be just what the Career Dr ordered. After all, what better way to realise and correct the levels you’ve plummeted to, than watching people with actual talent for hours on end?

As if that’s not enough, Rowland is also readying the follow-up to her acclaimed third solo project ‘Here I Am’.  Caught up with by MTV News on the set of R&B heartthrob Trey Songz’ ‘Heart Attack’ video, Rowland teased her 4th solo project.

Amidst much tabloid speculation, ‘Toxic’ tinwoman Britney Spears is reportedly set to close a deal with Simon Cowell that will see her occupy a seat on next season’s X Factor USA to the tune of a cool $15 million.

Replacing fellow pop starlets Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul, the deal, which insiders expect to be announced in the coming days, will make Spears the second highest paid reality talent show judge ever – bested only by Jennifer Lopez‘s hefty $20 million payout for this year’s ‘American Idol’.

While some argue the move screams of desperation on behalf of Cowell, the addition of Spears will undoubtedly spark interest in the show which saw unfavorable ratings in its first American season.  But, what about Britney?
