Britney Spears signed on to judge The X Factor long before any seats at the American Idol judging table became vacant. But if she hadn’t, we all might be singing a very different tune right now.

According to Zap2it, if Brit Brit hadn’t already inked her deal with The X Factor before the Idol judging spots left by Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez opened up, she “would have loved” to appear on the show.

The pop star also indicated that she thinks the judging shake-up can be a good thing for Idol, as it may be for The X Factor.

“I feel like it brings a whole new energy to the show, definitely,” she said.

Idol’s producers may have missed out on snagging Brit, but they have a ton of other potential judges to choose from!
