Simon Cowell is now breathing a sigh of relief 24 hours after officially announcing Britney Spears will be a new judge on the US XFactor. He says he was sure communications would break down and she would back out at the last minute but then she let the cat out of the bag!
Simon revealed “Right up until today, I wasn’t 100% certain whether it was going to happen or not. When you’re negotiating with people like that and they’re big stars, you don’t just sign a deal overnight, there are a lot of things to sort out. I remember Larry her manager saying Britney wanted to speak to me. She got on the phone and said we have a deal – I’m in and then Larry said we haven’t quite got a deal, like she spoke too soon”.
