It's easy to see why Simon Cowell was eager to add Britney Spears to his panel of X Factor judges.

The "Toxic" singer, 30, officially announced her participation in the show during the FOX Upfront event in New York City Monday. Spears slipped into a nude Stop Staring mini-dress (by designer Alicia Estrada) and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes to join Cowell, 52, L.A. Reid, 55, and new judge Demi Lovato, 19, on stage.

"I am so excited about this whole experience. It's going to be so much fun and so different from anything I've ever done," Spears told the crowd. "I'm ready to find the true star."

Spears -- engaged to Jason Trawick, 40, since December -- changed into another sexy number backstage, opting for a purple Alexander Wang mini-dress. "I couldn't be more excited to join The X Factor judging panel. I'm a huge fan of the show and now I get to be a part of the action," she told Us Weekly in a statement Monday. "Simon and L.A. better watch out!"
