Judging a singing competition was in Britney’s future, whether it was The X Factor or a competing show, including American Idol!
“I would have loved that,” Brit tells Zap2it.com.
And just like American Idol scouting two new judges for the show (they lost Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler this week), The X Factor needed to fill two of its seats, and they sure did.
“I feel like it brings a whole new energy to the show, definitely,” Brit says about her and Demi joining The X Factor. “Nicole [Scherzinger] and Paula [Abdul] were really great, but to have such a dramatic change, I’ll bet this even made Simon and L.A. nervous.
“That was what they had been used to, then these two new girls come in. I don’t know how it’ll be perceived, but it’s been fun for us. I’ve been having a blast.”
Brit was a pro as a kid on Star Search, but she admits she’d be a little anxious auditioning on The X Factor. “I would be extremely nervous, probably, if I’d really never done anything before and it was my first time to perform in front of 4,000 people,” she reflects of watching auditions in such cities as San Francisco and Providence (R.I.). “I’m sure it’s pretty nerve-racking.”
Even though she’s performed in front of hundreds of thousands of people, Brit still has a shy side, and thinks she’ll do a great job.
“I hope I’m ready. I don’t really know what to expect at this point, so I’m just taking it one day at a time.”
