'X Factor': Britney Spears receives $10 million offer to join show
Deadline is reporting that Britney Spears has received a $10 million offer to join the singing competition. This would be a huge get for the show which struggled during its first season and, as a result, fired Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.
If Spears does sign on the dotted line, it wouldn't be that much of a surprise given previous comments from EP Simon Cowell.
During a recent interview, Cowell says, "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. I would think that if she's managed to sustain a family, a career, which is tough, ['The X Factor' would be] a walk in the park."
No one from Spears, the show or FOX have commented on the matter.
In related judging news, X17online is reporting that LeAnn Rimes met with show producers on Wednesday (March 7) about the vacancies. The outlet quotes a source who says it was a "great meeting."
So Zappers, will Britney and LeAnn make you want to tune in?
