It's Tuesday! Time for another round of "5 Must-Hear Pop Songs of the Week"!
In case you haven't already heard (and really, my grandma already heard so you should be ashamed of yourself), Britney Spears and Demi Lovato are officially joining L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell on the judge's panel of next season's "X Factor"! What? That's in-sahne! I know! To celebrate the news, I've selected one song from each of the judges (well, and one "X Factor U.K." judge to round it all out) to celebrate their repertoire.
Seacrest out! (WAIT. Wrong show, wrong show...)
1.) Britney Spears, "Hot As Ice"
After weeks of negotiations, Britney's "X Factor" deal finally became a reality in late April -- as well as a reality show first: When all was said and done, Queen B made an icy hot $16 million on the deal, making her the highest-paid television judge in history, y'all (which is still a bargain, if you ask me).
In honor of the multimillion dollar deal, what better way to celebrate Brit Brit's legendary reign than with a spin of her 2007 Blackout brag attack, "Hot As Ice"? Produced by the unstoppable Danja, the springy number sees the Princess-turned-Queen of Pop merrily skipping on top of a space-age hip-pop beat while playfully massaging her ego. "New and improved, I'm saying thank you very much/ Living legend, you can look but don't touch," Brit Brit croons on one of the sassiest numbers in her back catalog. Though the song was released during one of the darkest periods in Queen B's career, it's still a standout. As you can see, fortunately, she's cold as fire... 14 years and counting! Viva La Holy Spearit!
