Simon Cowell has finally admitted ... he's GUNNING HARD to get Britney Spears as a judge on the next season of "X Factor."

Cowell just called in to "TMZ Live" ... and told us, "I would love to have her on the show ... I think she would be a fascinating person to sit next to."

Simon said he couldn't reveal too much about the negotiations ... but did seem optimistic and hinted that he would have an answer from Britney's camp within the week.

Stay tuned ...

Big mistake simon, how can you have someone "a singer" that hasn't got the confidence to sing live herself, judging people who do!

"fascinating" is not exactly the word that comes to mind when I think Britney Spears...what could she possibly add to the show? She was on psychiatric drugs and isnt even allowed to handle her own money? WTH is Simon thinking?

Simon hahaha you are sad. Still not watching your super dumb show. And so do NOT miss you on Idol, best thing you ever did was leave for US. Paula should be one ticked off chick. How embarassing for her. Hope you get that Paula, you were played by someone you made a fool out of yourself over by drooling all over him.
