REALLY sounds like Brit might land this job!
"'The fact that she's still one of the most talked-about - not just popstars, but people in the world today - means that you've got this star power."
"This girl's got resilience and the fact that she's survived this and she's still hot, she's still having hit records and she's still controversial…there's a reason for that."
And here's Simon on whether or not he thinks Britney could handle the judging gig:
"I would think that if she's managed to sustain in her family life a career which is tough, this is a walk in the park."
Nothing's confirmed yet, but it definitely sounds like Brit Brit might be the gurl for the job!
Fingers crossed!!!!! We'd LOVE to see this happen!!!!!!!!
