It doesn’t get more official than this. Reports of Britney Spears and Demi Lovato joining the judges’ panel on The X Factor have been confirmed by a twitpic, uploaded on Britney’s Twitter with the hashtag’s #britneyxfactor and #SimonBritneyDemiLA. The pop stars, posing alongside their co-judges Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid, are in New York for Fox’s Upfront Presentation, during which the network’s upcoming season is announced.


“I couldn’t be more excited to join The X Factor judging panel,” Spears said in a statement. “I’m a huge fan of the show and now I get to be a part of the action. Simon and L.A. better watch out!”

Demi echoes her enthusiasm: “I’m so thrilled to join this legendary group of judges on [the show],” she says. “To be able to spend each week with Simon, L.A. and Britney watching the best that America has to offer is truly a dream come true.”

Reports that Cowell was hoping to nab Spears for the show have been circling ever since the firings of former judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul. After being offered $10 million for the gig, Britney reportedly demanded $16 million instead. She ultimately walked away with a payday of $15 million for one season of work. (Way to haggle her down, X Factor.)

Will you be helping boost the show’s ratings in its second season now that Britney and Demi are on board? Let us know on FacebookTwitter, or in the comments below.

    Demi as a judge? wtf couldn’t we get someone better who has been in the business longer and doesn’t use scandal to stay there.
    demi is a pathetic famewhore that manipulates and uses people to get ahead. her career needs to end. she has to many issues to survive in the industry. i am suprised that hollywood hasn’t chewed her up and spit her out completely yet. she is ridiculous and needs to get a real job to know what hardship is. she is a spoiled ungrateful brat.
