The 30-year-old singer has signed a contract to be a judge on the talent show alongside Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid after months of negotiations.
A source close to Spears reveals, “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. It’s all completed and Britney is beyond excited.”
Britney’s new judging position opened up after Simon fired former judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger earlier this year.
Spears is said to be very excited to be working with Simon.
The source adds, “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.
“She is excited about showing the world that she can do this, and do this well. This is the perfect next stage in her career. Both Britney and Simon are very excited to work together.”
