(Newser) – And the new judge on The X Factor is ... Britney! The pop idol will join the talent show on Fox, reports RadarOnline, and will rake in $15 million a year. (The latter is a scoop from E! News.) Spears first had to meet with a real judge who oversees her conservators—the group of people, including her father and maybe soon her future husband, who must sign off on all her legal and financial decisions. "The judge was extremely impressed and Britney is very, very excited to become a part of Simon Cowell's show," says a Radar source.
