Britney Spears‘ on-again/off-again flirtation with Simon Cowell and “The X Factor” is officially on-again.

Deadline.com reports that the singer is finally closing in on a deal to join Cowell and crew for season two of the Fox series after over a month of negotiations between the two sides. The report states that over the weekend, major deal points were agreed upon by both sides. In addition, after initially entering talks with a $10 million offer from the show, the pop singer is now looking at somewhere closer to $15 million to fill a judges seat vacated by the firings of Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.

The story also states that Cowell and Fox wanted to get Spears on board before looking to fill the other empty chair.

A deal is expected to be wrapped up and announced soon, according to the site.
