While we wait to know who our X-Factor judges are going to be, we’ve gotten our fix Stateside. When it was reported back in March that The X Factor USA were considering paying Britney Spears a massive $20 million (£12.8 million) to be a judge, we all asked ourselves if this just could be Britney’s big comeback? And now that it’s been confirmed that Britney Spears will join the judging panel – alongside former Disney-star Demi Lovato – replacing Simon’s veteran right-hand (wo)man Paula Abdul and former Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger – and now we really, really have to resist singing ‘It’s Britney b****' and then going into a whole rendition of ‘Gimme More’ in the middle of Grazia HQ…
Britney is clearly excited about her new role, telling Simon and LA to ‘watch out’ and admitting that she is a ‘huge fan of the show and now I get to be a part of the action.’ Simon Cowell seems to be fairly chuffed with his choices too, saying that Demi Lovato was so important to get on board because she speaks to younger audiences. After Demi’s post-Disney rehab stint, we also think it’s going to be a bit of a comeback for her too. The 19-year-old has said that she is ‘so thrilled to join this legendary group of judges. To be able to spend each week with Simon, L.A. and Britney watching the best that America has to offer is truly a dream come true.’
The X Factor USA is due to return to later this year and we can’t wait. Mostly, because we want to see just what Britney will be wearing each week.
