Brit's 'X Factor'!
Britney Spears will be a judge on the reality competition!
After a number of rumors surrounding who would be the new X Factor season 2 judges, it was finally announced that Demi Lovato and Britney Spears were the chosen ones — but is creator Simon Cowell happy with his decision?

In the new FOX promo for the show — that happened to air during the season 11 finale of Simon’s other show American Idol – the “Skyscraper” and “Slave 4 U” singers are featured with fellow judges Simon and L.A. Reid on set and smiling. However, the teaser ends with Simon saying to camera while laughing,

“What was I thinking?”

Are you asking the same question?

What do you think about the new X Factor judges? Did Simon make the right choice, or are there more qualified musicians that would have been better suited for the judges’ table? State your case in the comments!

Britney seems excited at least, telling People at the show’s upfronts,

“It’s going to be so much fun and so different from anything I’ve ever done.”
