All’s quiet on “The X Factor” front, and when we last heard from the off-season drama, Britney Spears was on the verge of joining the series as a new judge. That was several weeks ago.
So what’s been happening? Celebuzz reports that Spears is still very much in contention and could also be joined by “Hannah Montana” herself, Miley Cyrus.
The site reports that Cyrus is on Simon Cowell’s shortlist, which also includes heaveyweights such as Fergie, Avril Lavigne and Demi Lovato.
As for Spears, the singer’s deal to fill one of the two vacant seats at the judge’s table remains “close” and reportedly could move forward now that a Los Angeles judge decided to make her fiancé, Jason Trawick, a co-conservator of her estate and thereby allow him to sign off on decisions related to her career.
