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

By: Rachel Levy / December 27, 2012

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.
