Britney Spears is the latest name to be linked to The X Factor USA, reportedly believing it to be the perfect opportunity to prove she's still the same girl she was in 1999.

The 'Hold It Against Me' singer went through a very public meltdown in 2007 and has been working hard to get her career back on track ever since.

Uhhh Britney, there's a giant knife behind you...

And with two seats vacated on the talent show's judging panel, she's keen to get in on the action.

''She's a huge fan of The X Factor and thinks it's the perfect time for her to be a judge," a source told The Sun. "She wants to show her fans she is back to her best and where better to do that than on national TV every week?

''She knows all about the ups and downs of pop fame. And with her schedule relatively clear she has the time to dedicate to a different project.''

Show boss Simon Cowell has confirmed he is after two new female judges to replace Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, who were axed along with host Steve Jones last month.

The insider continued: ''Britney has had a tough few years but this would put her back at the very top. She would be great for the show and it could be great for her. In terms of excitement and intrigue Britney would top them all.''

What do you reckon? We can't see this actually coming true, but we are curious to know what Britney would be like...
