After months of speculation, Britney Spears has officially signed on to join Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid on the X Factor judges’ panel for the upcoming season.
E! News is reporting that Spears inked the deal for $15 million, which makes her the highest paid female reality TV judge. Jennifer Lopez makes about $12 million American Idol while Christina Aguilera earns around $10 million for The Voice.
Spears fills one of the voids left by Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger when Cowell fired them at the end of last season. So there’s one more seat to be filled. Speculation on who will take that chair has already begun, but let’s hope a deal is signed faster than the Britney one. The most recent names mentioned for the last seat were Demi Lavato and Miley Cyrus.
