I Want Britney on 'X Factor' ... BAD!

4/17/2012 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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 ...

Well its a lot better than Paula Abdul. Still not sure why Britney wants to do this other than to keep money rolling in for her agents and managers.

Simon,I met you at the Elton John Fund raiser,and I was happy to be seated next to you,I will say you have the ability to arrange a contract with Mrs Spears,I just think you can do a Deal that is Mutual and it will be so fun to watch the Competition go for the "Neil"sons..Ratings.God Bless,and you are and have been a true Success. You are creating jobs and helping along with these new shows bring talent to the grand stage that never had the opportunity to Shine..Love Always.Neil G.Leeds

For ALL you haters... Britney has one of the MOST SUCCESSFUL careers in the business and is the PERFECT judge! She has been on a talent show herself, she knows what it is like and what the contestants are feeling and she knows how the business works!
For the people saying she can't sing or doesn't have any talent! OPEN YOUR EYES, how do you think she got to where she is today!? It most certainly is not from being just 'pretty'!
As for people calling her dumb... Do you know her? Have you had a conversation with her? NO, so don't judge her! She obviously is very nervous and anxious in front of a camera nowadays, and since WHEN does making comments saying "That is awesome" make someone unintelligent? Grow up please!
She could blow you all out of the water...
As Britney said herself...
"Love me hate me, say what you want about me
But all of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Amy"!!!

all about the money    

To be honest I wasn't really that impressed with X-Factor last season to begin with. If Brittany is going to be a judge its just another reason to not bother watching this season.

Why is it when I read BRIT UK post up above there all I could see was that LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE video from years back?
