Britney Spears has finally been confirmed as a judge for X Factor USA’s second season after months of speculation and juggling act of names thrown around.
The “Baby One More Time” singer was a strong contender as her mass appeal could help with the distressing ratings and is apparently the supposed redeemer for the show that gave the ax to former judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger along with host Steve Jones who weren’t able to revive sagging numbers.
“America’s Got Talent” new judge, shock jock Howard Stern, is not holding his tongue (not that he ever) about the train wreck he think Spears will be.
“I think we’re going to tune in to see her, to see if she can function through the thing,” Stern explained. “As far as any real criticism, I think Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid will do that…I think Britney will sit there and eat a lollipop and wear a sexy outfit…I’ll tune in to see what kind of train wreck she is, absolutely.”
