Britney Spears on 'X Factor'?: Fans react

Britney Spears

Britney Spears hasn't yet signed on the dotted line of what's reportedly a $10-million offer to be a judge on Simon Cowell's "The X Factor" next season, but fans of the show (and of Brit-Brit) are already making their opinions known online. And if there's one overriding sentiment being expressed by the masses, it's excitement (for various reasons), though tempered with caution.

After all, Britney Spears hasn't had the smoothest ride in recent years.

Protective fan Nick Harris tweeted, "Dear @britneyspears please don't do the X factor.... Leave those shows for nobodies like christina, please and thank you!"

A Britney fan from Manila tweeted, "If @britneyspears on X Factor USA will pursue, Im gonna watch every single episode! Hello? She's been out of the television for like decades."

Non-fan Mark Sundstrom wrote, "The idea of Britney Spears judging/coaching a supposed SINGING contest... is beyond hilarious. When has she ever really SAAANG? Star Search?"

Miami Herald blogger Lesley Abravanel echoed that sentiment when she wrote, "If X Factor hires Britney Spears as judge, does that mean that part of that elusive factor now includes killer lip syncing skills?"

Washington, D.C., resident Nicole Cahill wrote, "i like watching hot messes on tv for all of the cringeworthy moments-and because of that, I will be watching x factor with ms britney spears."

And self-proclaimed Canadian cultural studies geek Michelle Gonsalves cautioned, "#badideas, kids. She's horrible under pressure."
