    And the Britney vs Christina fan wars will live on

  • Alan

    I’m excited as hell… CAN’T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    she can not sing so why she gonna be on The X Factor!

  • MoHasanie

    I’m actually a little interested even though I hate music competitions. I’ll watch the premiere just to see how it is, but I’ll probably just stop watching after two or three episodes.

    I think she is the only star out there who has a significant CHANCE to raise the ratings for the show. People are absolutely fascinated by her, and that is the main reason why this could potentially work. She could be terrible, and might do absolutely nothing for viewership, but I cannot think of another artist who has the potential to make a big difference.

    Ugh @ the “if she cant sing, how can she judge” comments. They must have good voices yes to be on the show but the show is called THE X FACTOR. Britney Spears exemplifies the X Factor whether you like it or not.

    She may not sing but i believe she can tell when a person is not singing right i guess Just like J-lo, she can`t sing much but she knows how to!!!! lol
    I wonder who is the fourth judge or this time is just 3!!???

  • Tony ^_^

    And with that, I’ll watch The X-Factor this Fall! :D Hehe…

    Britney spears is a perfect example of the x or it factor. She has survived the business through all her HIGHS and her horrible LOWS in Life. She is still relevant has number 1 albums as well as number 1 singles and buzz worthy videos. She admits she does not have the strongest voice in the business and yes she does lipsync sometimes when her performances require a lot of dance routines but overall Britney Spears is the xfactor so get over it. If you don’t like her don’t watch! If you do like her then watch! I for one will check out xfactor as a new viewer due to this news alone. She had a positive impact on her appeearances on HIMYM and Glee raising its season 2 episode 2 viewers a whopping 2 plus million viewers compared to the season 2 ep 1 premiere which is pretty good. Every little viewer counts!!!

    And with this Fox will kill the competition.

  • Kaylie

    I am so excited!!!!! I would have wanted Beyonce to become a judge as well.

    It was reported a while back that they wanted to wrap up the deal with Britney Spears before getting into negotiations with a fourth judge. The names mentioned in a link from the E! article are Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato or Avril Lavigne.

    Britney is what the X Factor is all about, you can’t last in the industry for 15 years if you don’t have IT.

  • A

    LOL @ the pressed comments.

    Britney is an example of an ‘X FACTOR’. X factor if you didn’t know, is NOT about live vocals; but overall performance. Britney is known for her stage presence. She is good for the show.

    And it will bring in the biggest ratings cause the haters will tune in more than her fans. Thats for sure.

  • A

    I didn’t watch The X-Factor last season but I will watch it now.

  • A

    lol. I’m not the same person as the first A (we posted at the same time). I’m the 2nd one at 2:57 PM.

    She does not sing live, but it does not mean she can not sing. Simon & Reid L.A not sing either!

    Listen to it and see if she can not sing:
