Spears previously turned down a $10 million offer from Simon Cowell‘s music competition show but it appears $13 million to judge and an additional $2 million to perform was enough to change her mind. The deal hasn’t been officially signed yet as Spears is under a conservatorship with her father, Jamie.
To put this proposed deal in perspective, Paula Abdul received only $2.5 million during her one season as judge on the show.
I think folks will tune in to the first couple of episodes but is Spears relevant enough in 2012 to create a huge increase in ratings? Only time will tell.
