The latest celebrity to vie for a spot amongst the boys on the X Factor judging panel is none other than Britney Spears! Of course, since her untimely mental breakdown, she's bounced back as impressively as one can expect and her last album was totes a hit, right, guys? So, natch, the next step in her killer comeback is sitting in a judge's chair like former BFF X-Stina over on that other singing talent show...

Sources told US Weekly that Britney Spears recently reached out to Simon Cowell's team to throw her name in the mix for possible Nicole Scherzinger/Paula Abdul replacements. A rep for the show didn't have a comment.

What do you think about Britney on the judges panel? Just kooky enough to work? Or would she make Nicole look like an uber-articulate musical genius?
