For the upcoming season 2 replacing Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.

Multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning worldwide pop icon Britney Spears and singer, songwriter and actress Demi Lovato will join L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell as judges on THE X FACTOR, the hit singing competition series returning this fall on FOX.

Spears is one of the most successful and celebrated entertainers in pop history. Her musical career boasts nearly 100 million albums sold worldwide and countless awards and accolades, including the 2011 MTV Video Vanguard Award and Billboard’s Best-Selling Female Artist of the Decade (1998-2008). Spears first captivated audiences with her first single “…Baby One More Time,” an international hit that is currently 14x Platinum in the U.S. So far, Spears has earned a total of five No.1 debut albums and 24 Top 40 songs in her career.

Lovato is an accomplished singer and actress with a devoted and engaged young fan base. Her single, “Skyscraper,” off of her most recent album, “Unbroken,” recently went platinum, while the video for her new single, “Give Your Heart a Break,” already has garnered 10 million YouTube views. Her first album, “Don't Forget,” debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart and her second album, “Here We Go Again,” debuted at No. 1. Lovato began acting at the age of 10, and starred in the cable television series, “Sonny With A Chance.” Her film credits include “Camp Rock” and “Princess Protection Program.”

"I'm absolutely delighted Britney and Demi are joining us,” said Simon Cowell. “Britney remains one of the biggest stars in the world, she's talented, fascinating – and I believe she knows exactly how to spot THE X FACTOR. Demi's had an amazing career in music, TV and film for someone her age. She's young, confident, and enthusiastic. I think it’s really important that she speaks to our younger audience. The new panel will be dynamic and will work really well with the changes we are making to the show.”

Spears added, “I couldn't be more excited to join THE X FACTOR judging panel. I'm a huge fan of the show and now I get to be a part of the action. Simon and L.A. better watch out!”

“I'm so thrilled to join this legendary group of judges on THE X FACTOR,” said Lovato. “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.”

Mike Darnell, President of Alternative Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company, noted, “Britney is an unparalleled superstar. Her success in the music industry over the last two decades makes her a perfect fit for THE X FACTOR judging panel. Demi has mass appeal and is beloved by her fans around the world. We are incredibly lucky to have them on board and we know they will bring so much excitement to the judging table for Season Two!”

“Britney Spears has done it all – she is the ultimate pop icon – and I am thrilled that she has agreed to join THE X FACTOR,” said executive producer Cecile Frot-Coutaz. “Nobody embodies THE X FACTOR more than Britney – she has shown the world what it means, how to do it and how to sustain it! Demi, like Britney, was discovered at a young age. Her ambition and drive solidifies her as one of the most popular young artists today. Now they will each get a chance to share their experiences and skills with the acts that they will mentor on THE X FACTOR.”

In its first season on FOX, THE X FACTOR shot to the top of the ratings as the No. 1 unscripted series of the fall and currently ranks as a Top 10 series among Adults 18-49 and the No. 1 new series among Women 18-49.

THE X FACTOR is searching for undiscovered talent 12 years old or over – both solo artists and vocal groups – who are willing to brave the panel for a chance to win a $5 million recording contract with Syco/Sony Music. Interested solo artists and vocal groups should sign up now for audition information at www.thexfactorusa.com.

In a departure from other singing competition series, the first time contestants audition for THE X FACTOR judges, they will do so in front of an audience of thousands – raising the stakes and increasing the pressure to impress not only the judges, but also a potential legion of fans. This will be the ultimate test to prove they have the vocal ability, charisma and stage presence that it takes to win an unprecedented $5 million recording contract with Syco/Sony Music.

Britney Spears Joins 'X Factor' As A Judge
Pop star will earn a reported $15 million for one season.
By Katie Byrne

Move over, Christina! Now that "The Voice" has wrapped, it's time for another Mouseketeer-turned-diva to judge future music stars: Britney Spears has reportedly signed a deal to be a judge on "The X Factor," according to E! News.

News first broke in early March that the pop star was in negotiations to join the panel of Fox's reality singing competition, and last month, it was reported that Spears was being offered $15 million for one season of the show — $3 million more than Jennifer Lopez earns as a judge on "American Idol."

"The contract is signed," a source told E! "There's been a lot of back and forth over the past few weeks as they negotiated the small details, but she's on. It's all completed and Britney is beyond excited."

In an April interview with TMZ, Cowell remained mum about the Spears negotiation rumors but admitted that he would "love" to have her on "X Factor."

"I think it would be a coup," he said. "I think she would be a fascinating person to sit next to, so we'll have to wait and see."

Spears will join returning mentors Cowell and record executive L.A. Reid on the panel.

Several stars — from Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato to Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey — were reportedly discussed as possible replacements for Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul before Spears became the front-runner. There's no word yet on whether one of those rumored contenders (or anyone, for that matter) will join the show as a fourth judge.

"The X Factor" returns to Fox in September, with auditions already under way.

a) it's not just about singing
b) you do realize her predecessor was Paul Abdul, of all people - not exactly big shoes to fill as far as being able to sing
c) just because one can't sing live, doesn't make them a bad source for knowledge and advice, I doubt Simon or L.A. Reid have chops worth showing off either; you need a knowledge of the industry and what it takes to make it, and Britney has that in spades, just like L.A. and Simon do.

Anyway, that said I'm still adamantly against this idea and I think she and her team are making a big mistake, but I can't argue with seeing her all dolled up on TV twice a week. :hearts: She looks fabulous!

Oh Dear God. :sobbing: Exactly how I imagine she'd sound - rehearsed & uncomfortable. I'm not saying she CAN'T do this, but at least not now, not yet. She's so not ready, this is such a money-driven decision. She hasn't done a real candid interview in years, and the ones she does do are 90% of the time robotic and ridden with anxiety. Why are they expecting she'll come off well on a show like this? I really DO NOT get it. They're looking for big exposure to get her 'hot' again but it's so not right, and especially in this type of setting on this type of show. And with Demi Lovato sitting next to her? That'll put even MORE pressure on Britney. She should have been next to someone who's known for being a vocalist and is established and respected in the industry, not some tween Disney star.

I'm just so against this in every way. And I really don't believe it's something Britney truly wants to do, that's the worst part.

All good points I guess my only other concern is that she doesnt seem to be able to be able to do live unrehersed interviews anymore so how is she going to manage all of these live shows. Thats not a knock Im just curious to se what people think.

They did need someone like that, and Demi Lovato was the wrong choice. That's not a knock on her talent, she is a good singer, but the general public won't take the show seriously with an unproven Disney queen sitting next to Britney, who we know is gonna be the softest judge ever. This is gonna be a mess. Hoping for the best, and obviously I'm gonna watch, but the truth is it's gonna kill in the ratings for a few episodes, then die down drastically.

Not to mention it will take a toll on Britney's mental health. She's gonna be on national TV twice a week and people will be eager to pass judgment and tear her down once again. I'm really worried about her.

Yup, she did look "petrified" and when Simon announced her name, she couldn't even manage the fake smile she had on for the rest of the segment. And the "back to you, Simon" made me cringe.

I'm sad. :sad: This is wrong for both of them. Lovato was recently in rehab for cutting and drug problems from the little I know about her.

With "The Voice" ratings in the toilet, bringing Britney on as a judge is the smartest thing FOX could do. In the past 24 hours, Britney and X factor are the most searched phrases online and have the most articles written about. There is a buzz around X factor now unlike any other talent show. :yeah:

Glee, which has been sucking lately in the ratings department (to say the least), is also hoping to use Britney for ratings by doing a second Britney themed episode that will air right after X factor.

Britney always loves to do her bit towards rescuing shows from the brink of disaster. :worship:

People liking you and wanting to buy your music can be tough to come by for some artists. Nobody votes for Christina's contestants on 'The Voice' because she's a tacky b*tch, which makes for hella entertaining TV for sure, but sadly it's a reflection on who she really is.

As the failing contestants on all these talent shows can account to, it's not enough just having a "voice" and getting public exposure - there are tons and tons of talented singers out there who have been on national TV for weeks on end and have come & gone.

Why Britney Spears Is Exactly What The X Factor Needs
Author: Mack Rawden (http://www.cinemablend.com/features/About-Us-296.html#Mack%20Rawden)

On the surface, Britney Spears’ hiring (http://www.cinemablend.com/television/Fox-Confirms-Britney-Spears-Demi-Lovato-X-Factor-Judges-Season-2-UPDATED-With-Photo-42506.html) seems like a predictably desperate move made by a desperate show that’s desperately in need of higher ratings to justify its bloated budget. As such, there are dozens of reasons why I should roll my eyes and be cynical about The X Factor shelling out for the “Lucky” singer and to a lesser extent, Demi Lovato, but actually, I couldn’t be more on board. To understand why though, you have to understand the incredibly bizarre and specific way in which The X Factor found itself drowning in mediocrity during its first season.

Most average shows are average in almost every respect. The writing is okay. The format is okay. The acting is okay. The production values, the editing, the camera work, the hosting, all of it is remarkably pedestrian. Thus, in order to get better quickly, a whole lot of shit has to fundamentally change. Fortunately for The X Factor, nothing about its first season was average at all. It was a strange mix of beauty and putrescence. The edited content and sleekness were A-pluses. The basic format was a proven winner in Europe. Simon Cowell and LA Reid were both the perfect mix of tough and fair. The contestants were actually very talented, far more so than The Voice’s participants, and the crowd was just the right amount of vocal. All of those elements should have combined together to create something wonderful.

But sadly, everything else wasn’t mediocre, it was downright awful. Almost immediately after filming the first episode, Cheryl Cole was fired. To compensate, producers brought in Nicole Scherzinger who famously refused to vote on which contestant to send home. Host Steve Jones tried his damndest to transition between the judges and the contestants, but all too often, he came off as too insensitive and completely out of his element. He often failed to keep the show running on time, and some of the contrived banter between the judges was abysmal and felt scripted.

All of this brilliance and awkwardness combined together to alienate a lot of viewers. Many tried to get on board at various points, but the failures were just too noticeable for them to continue. Others, like myself, saw the areas of promise and hoped against hope something would eventually change.

Britney Spears is that change, or at least, she’s the promise of that change. She’s a big enough personality to draw viewers back in, and with Demi Lovato by her side, all of those negatives could wind up being positives. That’s the best case scenario, but even if Spears winds up being remarkably average, her presence, coupled with the other news faces, should be at least average, producing a net win in overall quality.

The X Factor needed to hit the reset button. In order to do that, it needed someone huge, someone capable of convincing fans to curiously tune in one more time. Britney will do that. Now it’s just up to Simon to fix the other problems.

And I agree, it's personal opinion. Personally, I like Christina as an artist and I watch 'The Voice' mainly cause of her. I even bought several songs off her last flop album. FOR ME though, I stan for people who I actually like for who they are, beyond their musical talent.

Also, the fact that Britney is judging the show won't be a reflection on the singers *in* the competition. If you're truly listening for vocals, Britney's presence should have no effect on your decision to watch the show or not.

Don't just turn a blind eye to the fact that this is wrong, Fe. :sobbing: I'm gonna watch every week and love seeing her all dolled up, but I really think this is a bad move. You have to take into consideration the conservatorship, her mental health, her recent media history, and the fact that her strengths definitely do not lie in giving candid, unscripted responses. If her team is so desperate to make her more popular, they should get Britney to be introspective and see if she really wants it, and then get her to push herself as an entertainer if she real answer is yes. Not throw her onto some sinking reality TV show in a format that not only doesn't cater to her strengths, but will glaringly expose her awkward, anxious social tendencies.

They handle everything so wrong with her...

And no, it doesn't affect the show's singers & contestants. You said you watched for the vocals, and the vocals will be the same with or without Britney, cause she ain't singing. That's the truth.

You do realise that your defensive, over-the-top reaction says more about you than anything else, right? :lol:

Yes, I don't like Britney, but trust me, I don't give enough of a damn to post in a thread just to "shade" her :spit: For the record, when I implied that they didn't make good choices, I was referring to Demi as well. She's far too inexperienced for this :unsure:

Did I say I thought Paula was a credible judge? :confused: Same goes for J. Lo

It's not just about the vocals in a performance. Coaching and judging should touch on vocals too, IMO :)

Since when do X-Factor judges coach the contestants on vocals :weirdo:. Their jobs are mainly picking up the right song and giving some tips on performances on stage. :lol:

It's kinda obvious you come here to shade Brit Brit. Why bother to hide?

And singing isn't part of the performance? ;)



Wow. Just wow. The paranoia is just unbelievable :lol:

Obviously. It says I'm a die-hard Britney fan and I'll stick up for her. Not exactly news to anyone.

You can say it again and again, but the truth is you do. And you did. :lol:

And I don't doubt you implied Demi as well, but the 'can't sing' bit was pretty see-through and we know who you were referring to.

Did I say I thought Paula was a credible judge? :confused: Same goes for J. Lo
It's not about whether you think they're qualified judges, it's about whether you're gonna use that as an excuse not to support the show. In Paula's case, you seem to overlook it, but I don't think you'll do the same in Britney's case. That's my point.

It's not just about the vocals in a performance. Coaching and judging should touch on vocals too, IMO :)
The judging will absolutely touch on their vocals, I can guarantee you that. If not by Britney, then by the other three. If your issue is about the coaching being about vocals, then X-Factor as a show is what you should have a problem with, cause it doesn't work like that.

I'm just trying to call a spade a spade here - you shaded Britney, and your not supporting the show has nothing to do with her singing ability, but the fact that you don't like her and she'll be in direct competition with your fave. Call me paranoid all you want, at least I'm honest.

That's debatable :lol:

Anyway, it comes down to personal opinion. For me, there's no use having some "X factor" if you can't sing :lol:
I dont think it's really debatable, I mean who can match the buzz and interest in the public the way Britney does specially in her teens? There's just smething about her that makes people crazy/get really interested in her

Oh lord, of course they would pick two women that Simon and LA could run over. :rolleyes:

Nicole didn't do the best job but they really shouldn't have given her the old people they were the hardest group to work with. It really wasn't fair to Nicole. Also, same with Paula she had groups but then half her groups were random people put together or groups who were basically a lead singer and a bunch of guys to stand behind them.

It'll be interesting to see what happens... Paula couldn't sing but she had other talents... ie, professional dancer/ choreographer... what are Brittany's other talents again? :scratch:

American Idol is one thing where the judges do nothing after the finalist are chosen but on X-factor they have to do a lot... so when they say Brittney do they really mean Brittney and her team? :confused:

Won't there be a new album ready for her by the end of this year or something? She's probably gonna use a slot on the later live shows to promote her new album and lead single. (Not that she needed to be a judge to do that or anything.)

The fact that Paula Abdul is a choreographer is fine and dandy but the bottom line is, through all her years on Idol she was judging contestants' singing ability, not their ability to hit choreo in any way shape or form.

My point: even if you subscribe to this Britney sucks at everything and Paula doesn't propaganda, it doesn't change the fact that Paula was judging people on something she herself isn't a specialist at, and Britney will be doing the same thing. The fact that Britney isn't especially "talented" at anything (which is completely subjective anyway) doesn't reflect on her ability to see talent and star quality in other people. She's taken her limited ability a long, long way, and there's something to be said for that. This is a girl who went from poor-even-for-Louisiana-slum-standards, growing up in a hostile, literally abusive environment, to being one of the most iconic figures in popular culture. I'm sure lots of aspiring artists would love her input.

She's not doing a new album, or at least, I'd be really surprised if she did. I could see her releasing a single or maybe another compilation with 2-3 new songs for the sake of performing something and getting buzz sales, but not a full album.

I wasn't talking about Paula and Idol but Paula and X-factor although I agree she has no business judging someone's singing ability. I just think on X-factor Paula was able to use some of her actual talents.

I just asked what her other talents were. :lol: I don't follow Brittney, I can only go by her videos and music. It's a known fact that she can't sing that well and neither can Paula. Some feel Brittney is an excellent dancer..... eh, I'm going to say having seen live performances...not really. Now maybe Brit does her own choreography or writes her own lyrics or is the creative force behind her previous image? I don't know I don't follow her which is why I asked what are her other talents? :lol:



I'm pretty confident the answer is yes, here. :lol:



and that is a-ok with me as long as they don't go overboard trying to make us believe she is doing all the work. btw, i think they all have teams of people helping them.

Paula on Idol and Paula on X-Factor both gave feedback regarding vocals, ultimately. Britney's worked with a lot of the best choreographers in the world, just based on that she could provide plenty of good insight with regards to dance.

I just asked what her other talents were. Now maybe Brit does her own choreography or writes her own lyrics or is the creative force behind her previous image? I don't know I don't follow her which is why I asked what are her other talents?
I'm not bothering with trying to convince people of Britney's talent and I'm not gonna get into it over what she is or isn't good at, it's an exercise in futility. She's been in the business almost 15 years; ample time to solidify your own opinion whether you follow her or not. According to you, she can't sing or dance well; my point is that even assuming those things are universally accepted truths, it still wouldn't be a reflection on her ability to do a good job on a show like this. Industry experience does count for something, as Paula could attest to. Take it from someone who follows her closely - she should be much more concerned about expressing herself effectively and managing her social anxieties than having nothing to contribute.

and that is a-ok with me as long as they don't go overboard trying to make us believe she is doing all the work. btw, i think they all have teams of people helping them.
Fox, Simon Cowell and especially Britney's management are shameless. They'll do their best to make it seem like it's all her, no doubt about that.
