Britney Spears-

New York Bound For 'X-Factor'

Britney Spears is set to make a big splash Monday by personally appearing at the FOX Upfronts in New York City for the announcement that she will be joining  "X Factor."

As we reported, as of Friday AM the deal was NOT signed, contrary to various reports.  There were some fairly minor issues that still needed resolving and both sides were hoping to finalize it by end of day Friday or over the weekend.

Britney will not sign the deal because she's under a conservatorship -- Co-conservators Jamie Spears and Jason Trawick will do the honors.

Our sources say ... Britney and FOX both think a personal appearance is essential in creating buzz for the show.

I wish Britney well in everything she undertakes because she's a hard worker and she deserves to be happy. Go Britney!

Bill Cosby should host it and they should change the name to "Britney Says The Darnedest Things!" After every performer Cosby and Britney would have some Jell-o pudding and he would make those faces and do those voices and talk to her about the act they just saw. She would probably always say something that was a darned thing to say but if she couldn't think of something, Bill would have his team prepare cue cards in advance.

I can't believe what idiots daddy Spears thinks America is. If she's so si k she needs to be under a conservatorship, she should not be displayed in public to bring in money. Her tour was obviously a joke. She was nowhere near what she used to be but, of course, the Spears' love the money they can produce. Am so sick of all of them. They will parade this mentally Ill girl until no one watches. American television is dying so fast and America is getting sick of it. This certainly destroyed the credentials to Simon Cowell's show!

She REALLY is looking haggard....smoking, drinking and eating junk will do that. She looks like a very rough 40 year old.
