Britney Spears and Demi Lovato are joining the judging panel on "The X Factor" this fall, part of Fox's effort to boost its underperforming music competition shows.
The network's executives, in presenting next season's schedule to advertisers on Monday, also promised changes for "American Idol." While "Idol" remains Fox's centerpiece, as it has been for the past decade, it has lost a quarter of its audience this year.
Britney Spears would definitely bring the star power to the panel, not to mention being a proven successful recording artist herself having sold 33 million albums the U.S. and counting. Spears is fascinating on and off the stage, so people would definitely be tuning in to see what she has to say.
