Over the weekend we learned that Britney Spears is RUMORED to make an appearance in NYC today to formally announce that she will judge the upcoming second season of The X Factor. Since we first got wind of the reports that Simon Cowell was courting Britney as a new X Factor judge, there has been speculation and many preemptive reports about her joining the show. At this point, the deal is STILL not officially signed (well, not that we know for sure) so all eyes are on Britney surfacing in NYC to see if the latest reports are true. A Britney fan posted on Twitter last night that Britney did manage to sneak into the city …
but thus far, there is no photographic proof (that I can find) of our dear Britney in NYC. HMMM. UPDATE: Video has surfaced of our dear Britney in NYC! Check it out below.
Ummm just saw Britney spears in person. Everything you would expect. Pink Tshirt sweatpants ugg boots and sunglasses at night
If this sighting is true and Britney really is in NYC right now, then it’s almost a certainty that she will be announced as a new judge on The X Factor. Altho we STILL don’t know for sure, I have a good feeling about this. Stay tuned … we are currently under Brit Watch.
UPDATE: TMZ managed to procure video of Britney making her way thru the Mandrian Oriental Hotel in NYC head of today’s (ALMOST ASSURED BUT STILL) rumored X Factor announcement:
Britney Spears is getting all gussied up for the big announcement today — that she … will join “X Factor” as new judge. Negotiations went right down to the wire between Britney and “X Factor” honchos. Her fiance, Jason Trawick, who you also see in the video, along with daddy Jamie Spears (not in video) signed the deal since they are Britney’s conservators. Britney didn’t talk as she walked around her hotel — the swanky Mandarin Oriental … FOX will make the announcement at the Upfronts today.
