Pop star and dancer Britney Spears and singer/actress Demi Lovato will be joining Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid for the American version of The X Factor as judges. Both stars have been the buzz for the FOX reality talent competition show which is in its second season.
Prior to the official announcement that Britney Spears had joined The X Factor judging panel, news has and still is swirling around that the star was signing on for a $15 million one-year contract. As for Demi Lovato, she allegedly is on for around $1.5 million to $2.5 million.
Britney Spears and Demi Lovato will be replacing judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul who left the Simon Cowell created show in January.
Meanwhile, Britney Spears says she is excited about the whole experience and joining The X Factor.
But what should we expect – hopefully a little excitement from the two and some real unbiased criticism since both know about the grueling dedication it takes to not only perform, but to entertain people whether singing, dancing or acting.
While people guess the salary of Britney Spears, there’s no guessing the winner’s prize. The winner will receive a $5 million recording contract with Epic Records.
The second season of X-Factor US is set to air in September 2012.
X Factor US is based off the British version which first aired in 2004.
