The latest name being whispered about as a possible replacement for axed judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger on The X-Factor is by far the biggest yet — Britney Spears. What’s more, it is being reported that it is Britney who is chasing after the open spot.
A source close to the singer says that Britney reached out to the show with hopes of appearing on the new season, though producers have yet to confirm this rumor.
Other singers said to be in the running include Janet Jackson and Blake Eyed Peas singer Fergie.
Britney just recently finished her Femme Fatale Tour which is reported to have grossed $68.7 million worldwide.
If this truly is the case and Britney wants a spot on the show’s panel this badly, we have no doubt Simon Cowell is a very, very happy man.
