Rumor has it that the "Scream & Shout" singer will not be back to reprise her role as judge according to an Us Weekly source.
"They paid [$15 million] for her to say 'amazing' and offer half-claps," the insider said.
The addition to Ms. Spears for the sophomore season was to spark interest after a lackluster first season. The recently concluded talent show trailed behind the first year when Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger were part of the panel.
As of now, the only judge that has been confirmed not coming back for a third round is L.A. Reid when he personally announced his departure.
