The singer is nearing a deal to join the Fox singing competition, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Deadline added that Spears has been offered $10 million for the job. (The negotiations on Spears' end are being handled by her agent and fiancé Jason Trawick.)
Earlier this year, the show cleaned house, axing host Steve Jones and judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul. Last month, remaining judges L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell confirmed that the two open spots would be filled by two women. Janet Jackson was rumored to be one of them, but she quickly shot that notion down.
Emails to reps for Fox and Spears were not immediately returned.
Do you think Spears would make a good judge?
