3 Stars, Including Britney Spears, Who Are Reality Show Judges

Posted by Katie F. on March 9th, 2012


Britney Spears could become the next judge on The X Factor as soon as next week. Sources are reporting that her fiancé and agent Jason Trawick is currently negotiating her contract and that it could be signed within the next week. So what is Trawick negotiating about? Money. This is reportedly what he and the show have been trying to come to an agreement on “for some time.” Britney was offered $10 million to work on the show, but she wants $16 million for the gig. When asked last month about  who the next big judge on the show would be, fellow judges Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid wouldn’t say much, but they did admit that they were flattered by Spears’ interest in the show. They refused to say anything else though in case it would “give it all away.” There must have been more going on at the time than they hinted at. Now it seems money is the only thing standing in the way of them closing the deal. Hopefully the two sides can agree on the dollar amount and sign the contract.

Britney Spears is very close to becoming a judge on hit reality show The X Factor, but she’s not the first star to do the job. Here are some other celebrities that also judge contestants on a reality show.

Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera works as one of the judges of singing competition The Voice, along with Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, and Blake Shelton. She signed a contract with the show in March 2011 before the show debuted. Aguilera stated at the time that she was very excited to be part of a project that “celebrates music” and helps “shape new artists’ careers.”

Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum is the executive producer of and a judge for fashion design competition Project Runway. She isn’t hosting Project Runway All-Stars, but rumors of her leaving the regular show were shot down last summer. She’ll continue to judge the contestants on the regular seasons as she has from the start in 2004.
