Music mogul Simon Cowell is refusing to confirm or deny rumors he’s chasing Britney Spears for The X Factor, telling fans they’ll have to “wait and see” if the pop star becomes a judge on the show.
The Toxic singer is reportedly in contract talks to replace either Paula Abdul or Nicole Scherzinger, but Cowell is refusing to let viewers know just how close she is to signing up – or if the rumors are true.

He says, “You’ll have to wait and see… I can’t confirm or deny anything right now. The truth is, we are talking to a number of people. It changes on a daily basis, to be honest with you.”

But Cowell has revealed that two new names have been added to the mix since the beginning of the week – a singer and a “very famous actress”.
