Britney Spears is expected to join the judging panel of "The X Factor," per various trade reports that came out last night (although the Hollywood Reporter claims to have had this first).
This sure seems like a huge get for a show that has made far more news for its judging mistakes than for getting the superstar it has promised. Nevertheless, this still isn't official, and there is another judge appointment that's expected, too, assuming this one does indeed happen. (Madonna? Simon has said he'd very much like her, too.)
