Hey there, I'm Karli Bulnes. Britney Spears is reportedly in talks to join The X Factor. Hear why she thinks singing competition shows are fun in today's PopSugar Rush. Britney Spears graced the UK X Factor stage back in 2008, and she may be returning to the show as a judge on the US version! Word is her fiancé Jason Trawick is negotiating a $10 million contract for Brit to fill one of the seats left vacant by Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger. Based on Brit's past comments, rumors she's joining the show's second season aren't too hard to believe. In an interview last year with Entertainment Tonight, reporter Mark Steines asked Britney if she'd ever consider being a part of a singing competition show like The X Factor and she was totally game! "Would you ever want to do something like that and be a part of a show that launches young talent?/Of course. I think it would be fun. To help someone else achieve their dream is one of the most beautiful things." Britney has actually already played the role of mentor on The X Factor, offering advice to the contestants during that 2008 appearance: "Good luck and keep doing it!" The show's live auditions are set to be shot this month, though Simon Cowell says he's in no rush to name the new judges.
