After months of speculation, it’s official! A new judge has been chosen for X-Factor and it’s Britney Spears.

The 31-year-old pop diva replaces Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul to become the solo female judge on the second season of Fox’s talent show juggernaut. “The contract is signed. There’s been a lot of back and forth over the past few weeks as they negotiated the small details, but she’s on,” a source told E! News. “It’s all completed and Britney is beyond excited.”

Getting Britney Spears to serve as a judge next to Simon Cowell and Antonio L.A. Reid wasn’t cheap. The “Circus” singer will reportedly earn $15 million to dish out advice to showbiz hopefuls. ”She’s ready for this,” the source said. “She can’t wait to sit down next to Simon at the judges’ table and give this everything she’s got. She is excited about showing the world that she can do this, and do this well. This is the perfect next stage in her career. Both Britney and Simon are very excited to work together.”

With Britney now on X-Factor, Christina Aguilera on The Voice, Kelly Clarkson on Duets, and Jennifer Lopez on American Idol, which pop diva judge is your favorite?
