ASimon Cowell is nervous about having Spears on the show, because he fears she won't be able to deliver good advice! Do you agree or disagree?
Simon Cowell Rejected Britney Spears for X Factor?
Though she's reportedly expressed interest, "Simon's worried she
won't be able to deliver good advice, and he's afraid contestants won't
take her seriously," a show insider tells Us Weekly of the British producer, 50, who doesn't want his program's brand associated with the formerly troubled teen idol.
When it comes to filling the vacant spots on the panel, Cowell is
also hoping to sign on someone with a little more experience in the biz.
"He'll probably go more in the direction of Mariah Carey or Janet Jackson," the show source shares.
