Britney Spears wants to join the judges' panel on "X Factor," a source close to the pop star, 30, tells Us Weekly.
With a keen interest in joining Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid at the judges' table for the FOX smash, the recently engaged "Till the World Ends" singer has reached out; a show rep didn't return calls to Us.
The show recently fired judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger plus host Steve Jones. Another pop icon now in talks to be a judge? Janet Jackson, multiple sources confirmed to Us last week. In addition, Black Eyed Peas' Fergie is also in the running for the show, the source added on Wednesday.
