After weeks of speculation, reliable sources are confirming that Britney Spears will join the judging panel on The X Factor, set to air this fall. With Nicole Scherzinger (formally of the Pussycat Dolls) and Paula Abdul cut from the roster, creator Simon Cowell has picked Spears, as well as up-and-coming singer Demi Lovato to take their seats in the season to come, along with returning judge L.A. Reid.
