Britney Spears has been OFFICIALLY confirmed as an X Factor USA judge, according to a source close to the star. 

For all you dedicated Sugarscapers out there, this won’t exactly been breaking news – as we’ve been reporting that Britney was just inches away from signing an X Factor deal for a while now.

Still, apparently it’s actually all confirmed and everything now, which is majorly exciting, no? 

According to E! News, a source close to Britney has revealed that the singer will be joining Simon Cowell and L.A Reid on the famous judging panel.

“The contract is signed. There’s been a lot of back and forth over the past few weeks as they negotiated the small details, but she’s on,” the source told E! News.

“It’s all completed and Britney is beyond excited. She’s ready for this – she can’t wait to sit down next to Simon at the judges table and give this everything she’s got.”

Hmmm, better be careful sitting next to Simon, Britters – we all know what happened with a certain Ms. Minogue. *cough*

Brit is rumoured to being paid £9.4 million (that’s 15 million dollars!) for her role on the talent show – which is silly really, because we would have done it for free.

Disney star Demi Lovato is hotly tipped for the one spare seat still left at the judging table – after she told MTV News that the job would be a “dream come true.”
