Britney Spears May Join 'The X Factor' for $20 Million

| by Michael Allen

Singer Britney Spears, who is famous for lip-syncing during "live" concerts, is posed to become a new judge on 'The X-Factor.'

If Spears takes the gig, she may earn $20 million a season, which is $3 million more than Jennifer Lopez earns on 'American Idol.' 

According to the website TheWrap.com, Spears' job would include a live performance, but no one knows if that will be lip-synced, as 'The X Factor" allows for contestants.

'The X Factor' has suffered in the ratings and producer Simon Cowell is desperate to make the second season successful. He let go of first season judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, as well as host Steve Jones.
