Yup, Britney Spears. On television. Judging others for their musical performances. Is this the shit, or is this the shit? Come on, pick one! There’s no wrong answers here today, folks! From

Simon Cowell has hinted that he wants to reload the judges panel on “X Factor” with two new women and according to reports, he’s close to landing a superstar who might help the second season of his talent contest much more interesting.

While names including Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey have been bandied about as possible replacements for Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul,? the buzz has continued to focus on Britney Spears. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Spears’ fiancé/agent, Jason Trawick, is on the verge of closing a deal as early as next week.

Cowell has played it coy with the Spears rumors over the past several weeks, telling reporters in a conference call that “there’s going to be a lot of twists and turns over the next few weeks and a lot of things we’re going to announce.” A spokesperson for “Factor” could not be reached for comment at press time.

Now, again. How awesome would this be? Well, I’ll tell you. It’d be FRICKING FABULOUS. And if the rumors were true about LeAnn Rimes joining the cast, too? Oh, I would be in snark-the-f-ck out heaven. I would watch this show each and every single night that it’s on, and if you know me personally, you’ll know that’s quite a feat, considering the fact that, like Lindsay Lohan on a coke binge, I can barely sit still for more than five minutes at a time, let alone for an entire television show.

Other judges in “consideration” include Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson.

And finally, if you thought Paula Abdul was a crazy “live” television personality, just wait ’til the world gets a hold on Britney. If she gets this gig, she will have secured her place on television for the rest of her life. I mean, could you just imagine the continuous demand?
