Britney Spears has been announced as the new judge of the US X Factor which is coming close to its second season.

Yesterday, she attended FOX Upfronts wearing a bodycon tan dress where she made the announcements next to fellow judges producer LA Reid, Simon Cowell and also new judge Demi Lovato.

After weeks of speculation Spears said: “It’s going to be so much fun and so different than anything I’ve ever done. I’m ready to find a true star.” Fellow judge Demi Lovato who at 19 becomes the youngest judge of any music competition in the US said: “I’m totally stoked to be here. It’s just an honour to be standing next to you guys: LA, Britney and Simon.”

Simon Cowell said: “Well we delivered. Rumours are one thing, delivering is something else. This has taken a year to get where we got to today and I’m thrilled.” LA Reid continued: ‘This is the Rolls Royce of television.”

It has been reported that Britney is receiving $15million for her judging contract which lasts for a year as well as a further $1million so that she can perform on the show.

Auditions for the competition start very soon and the show will be televised on US television in September.
