Who isanyway? TheWrap has learned that Britney Spears has turned down a $10 million offer to judge the next season of “The X Factor.”
Try her for $20 million. Will Fox is going to pony up? That’s the big question.
Based on a reliable source in Spears camp, the $10 million offer on the pop star to judge the next fall’s seasons of “The X Factor” is already a part of history. Oh yeah? The singer rejected that offer three weeks ago and instead she was considering about an offer to become a resident performer at a Las Vegas hotel in the fall, a la.
Now that NBC’s hit show “The Voice” will be competing with “X-Factor” in the fall, Fox badly needs a big name to announce on the judge’s panel of Simon Cowell’s show. And they call this a a game of chicken. You think so?
Spears’ camp wants $20 million. I think that is ludicrous and I’m pretty sure Fox won’t pay that. But the truth is it’s becoming an arms race for singing talent being paid to sit behind tables and… talk.
How about this –is paid $10 million by NBC to come back and judge the new season of “The Voice.” NBC is giving handsome paychecks, if not as much, to the other judges as well.
What Fox has given out for the “X Factor” judges is very far in comparison. According to a reliable source of information from inside,was paid $2.5 million for the last season, and she was announced at the 11th hour. However, she was fired along with judge and host Steve Jones.
