'X Factor' Judge Britney Spears Reportedly Being Fired: Which Pop Star Should Replace Her? (POLL)

'X Factor' Ratings
Good and bad news. Read More »

First it was Paula Abdul, then Nicole Sherzinger, and now it looks like Britney Spears may be the next The X Factor judge to get the axe from its co-creator Simon Cowell.

After wrapping its second season -- and Spears' first -- on Dec. 20, Cowell is ready to fire the blonde pop star from the FOX singing competition series, as reported by Us Weekly.

A show rep tells Celebuzz that "no one has discussed next year's judging panel yet - any reports otherwise are complete speculation."

But if the news is true, who should replace the Princess of Pop: PinkRihanna, Gwen Stefani, Miley Cyrus, and Katy Perry top our list of candidates.

Take our poll below to cast your vote.

According to the magazine, producers of the show wanted to give the "Toxic" songstress a real chance at being a staple on the judge panel, but it isn’t quite working out. And Spears hasn’t been living up to her $15 million contract.

The producers of the show had hoped that the mother of two – Preston, 7, and Jayden, 6 -- would portray her “crazy” self from the panel, but instead she hasn't been providing the emotional responses they  hoped for.

L.A. Reid announced earlier this month that he will also be leaving The X Factor, but Demi Lovato seems to be a keeper for now.

    I want to see Katy Perry and Shania Twain. When Shania was a guest judge on Idol, the crowd loved it. She ties into the country base... Kerry to pop base... Now that's an all star panel.

    The only one of those choices who knows anything about the music business is Gwen Stefani. She's been working in it the longest, has had the realest success in it, and is the most grounded.

    Miley would be good because she's all about the drama..... but she has got to grow her hair first

  • BrandyB

    If you want someone who actually KNOWS about Talent... it'd be PINK. However they have to choose someone who is free enough to be apart of the show and that will accept what they are offering to pay them. Pink might be too busy at this time to take that job.
