Rumor has it Britney Spears is in talks to join the judging panel on The X Factor.
Simon Cowell told reporters on a conference call Wednesday:
"Are we flattered that there could be interest? Yes. I've learned a big lesson: keep your mouth shut. Don't give it all away."
Panelist L.A. Reid also commented on the matter:
"The only thing you can count on is that we will likely have two girls."
Janet Jackson and Fergie are other names floating around to nab a coveted seat on the upcoming season of the hit show (both Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul were given the boot after season 1).
"There is a load of speculation. Some true and some not true. It's true to say there are a lot more people who have entered the frame this year and we really waited to see who was going to contact us before we actually contacted people. We are in that place right now, which is a good place to be. We will meet a number of people over the next few weeks."
We vote Team Britney.
