Britney Spears arrived in New York City today (May 14, 2012) for a press conference at which she will be unveiled as the latest X Factor Usa judge. Following intense negotiations that have lasted several months, Britney has finally signed on to join Simon Cowell and La Reid on the show and caught the star arriving in Manhattan for the big announcement on Monday.
Her fiance Jason Trawick - who also appears in the video of Britney arriving at the Mandarin Oriental - completed the deal with X Factor honchos last week. The superstar singer didn't speak as she walked around the swanky hotel, but did nod affirmatively when asked if she was excited to work with Demi Lovato, who has also joined the judging panel. Strangely, American Idol judge Randy Jackson also appears in the brief video, and says the addition of Britney and Demi to the X Factor panel are "hot". The latest additions to Simon Cowell's line-up are expected to be announced by Fox at the press conference on Monday.
Since the departure of Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul, numerous candidates have been linked with the vacant X Factor roles, including Janet Jackson, Fergie, Mariah Carey and MILEY CYRUS.
