Britney Spears Very Close To Signing Deal For X Factor Judge Spot

Just as J-Lo revitalized her career with a judge spot on American Idol, it looks like Britney is about to give her career a little (or big) boost with a plum gig on The X Factor.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Britney Spears’s fiancé Jason Trawick has been brokering the deal, although sources say X Factor head honcho Simon Cowell actually approached her first.

In any case, while we’ve not always been on board with Britney’s hubby and baby daddy choices (cough cough FEDEX cough cough), the fact that Trawick is actively furthering Britney’s career is a good sign to us.

THR says the move is a smart one: “Spears brings legitimacy as a successful recording artist, something critics of X Factor say was missing in last year’s competition, as well as a level of unpredictability and drama that also was largely absent from the Fox show when Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul were judges.”

We’d have to agree—Britney’s talented, and hasn’t really gotten into the producing game, or even started to recruit young stars in her mold, so perhaps now is her time to play mom to some budding pop stars.

Plus, we’re sure girlfriend will have some hilarious things to say about all those god-awful tone-deaf rejects.

      Dear Lord, why are you doing this to me Britney? Now I am forced to watch X-Factor.

      I’m not ready for this commitment.

      A drug-controlled no-talent lip-synching popstar is going to judge other people? Sounds like something the mindless gay drones will love.

      I don’t get it. To me, it seems like it’s beneath a star of that caliber. What’s next, Nutri-System commercials?

      I’m not really sure how Britney is talented and she’s pretty tone-deaf herself but I wish her the best.

      Poor girl’s career must be that bad right now. Let’s remember how many people talked poorly when Paula Abdul was joining American Idol years ago.

      She just had a huge 2011. Revitalizing is the wrong word I methinks.
