On April 11, a source close to the negotiations told Us the "Till the World Ends" singer will get $16 million for doing the show. "No paperwork has actually been signed yet," the source explained at the time. "But they finally came to terms. It was a long negotiation . . . Britney was a natural fit."

An insider now tells E! News, "She can't wait to sit down next to Simon at the judges' table and give this everything she's got. She is excited about showing the world that she can do this, and do this well."
