Britney Spears is one of the judges on FOX's reality singing competition series "The X Factor."

In a little more than a decade, Britney Spears has sold nearly 100 million records worldwide, making her the fourth best-selling female artist ever in America. Born in Mississippi and raised in Louisiana, Spears became a household name as a teenager when she released her first single " ... Baby One More Time"(1999). Her recently released album, "Femme Fatale," includes the No.1 hit "Hold it Against

Me," and additional hits "Till the World Ends," "I Wanna Go" and "Criminal." "Femme Fatale" is her seventh studio album since her 1999 debut album, " ... Baby One More Time," which broke sales records selling over 27 million copies worldwide and established Britney as a prominent figure in popular music and culture. Spears also recorded high-grossing albums "Oops! ... I Did It Again" (2000), "Britney" (2001), "In The Zone" (2003), "Blackout" (2007) and "Circus" (2008). An artist so beloved that she inspired her own episode of "Glee," Spears began crafting her most recent album, "Femme Fatale," while on the road for "The Circus Starring Britney Spears" tour. The tour grossed more than $130 million to become the fifth highest grossing tour ever by a female. Spears has been nominated for eight Grammy Awards and won for Best Dance Recording in 2005.

Spears appeared in local dance revues and church choirs as a young girl, and at the age of eight auditioned for "The Mickey Mouse Club." Although she was too young to join the series, a producer on the show gave her an introduction to a New York agent. She subsequently spent three summers at the Professional Performing Arts School Center. She also appeared in a number of off-Broadway productions as a child actor, including 1991's "Ruthless."

She returned to the Disney Channel for a spot on "The Mickey Mouse Club," where she was featured for two years between the ages of 11 and 13. Her demo tape eventually landed in the hands of a Jive Records executive who quickly signed her to the label. She toured American venues for a series of concerts sponsored by U.S teen magazines, eventually joining "N sync on tour. It all added up to 1999's wildly infectious "…Baby One More Time " album to make its bow on the charts at No. 1. The set not only spawned a smash hit with the title tune, but also scored with the charming ballad "Sometimes" and the funky "(You Drive Me) Crazy." Before the album finished its impressive worldwide attack of the charts, it garnered Britney 4 MTV Europe Awards, including best pop performer, and 4 Billboard Music Awards, most notably female artist of the year.

The massive demand for new Britney material was satisfied when her 2000 sophomore collection, "Oops!… I Did it Again," was released to a Spears-starved world in May. Once again, the title cut flooded radio airwaves, as did the anthemic "Stronger" and lovely "Don't Let Me Be the Last To Know." She also racked up more awards that year by taking home an American Music Award as favourite new artists, a Billboard Music Award as album artist of the year, and 2 Teen Choice Awards. Britney would later earn Teen Choice Awards in 2001 and 2003. Ever-prolific, the artist returned in 2001 with "Britney," a spirited, assertive collection on which she began to reveal her mettle as a tunesmith, not to mention as a vocalist of increasingly soulful depth. She earned high praise for the wickedly sultry "Slave 4 U," as well as for the forceful "Overprotected" and the gentle "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet A Woman."

The album was quickly followed by Britney's motion picture debut, "Crossroads," which proved that she has the talent and box-office pull to be a multifaceted superstar. Britney's musical intensity and her evolution from a teen renegade into a provocative young woman are undeniable throughout "In The Zone," her fourth Jive Records collection. First and foremost, the project showed her flexing notably strong and mature songwriting muscles. She co-wrote 8 of the project's 13 sterling new compositions, collaborating with such heavy hitters as Red Zone ("Me Against the Music," "The Hook Up"), Cathy Dennis ("Toxic," "Showdown"), R Kelly ("Outrageous") and Ying-Yang Twins on "(I Got That) Boom Boom." The album runs the stylistic gamut from streetwise hip-hop and electro-trance to new-wave-etched rock and well-crafted pop. From top to bottom, Britney effectively expands the parameters of mainstream musical consciously with songs that lure listeners with infectious hooks, and then captivates them with layers of clever lyrics and deft instrumentation.

Perhaps the most significant was the appearance of pop icon Madonna, who lent her voice to the single "Me Against the Music." Collaborating with one of her all-time greatest musical influences was a dream come true for Britney. From this collaboration, Britney picked up a 2004 Billboard Music Award of Hot Dance single of the Year. She also went on to win a 2004 Teen Choice Award of Choice Music Single for "Toxic," 2004 Female Artist of the Year at the MTV Europe Awards and a 2005 Grammy for Best Dance Recording of "Toxic."

The November 2004 release of Spears' greatest hits collection, "Greatest Hits: My Prerogative," featured all of her singles with the exception of "From The Bottom Of My Broken Heart." It also featured three previously unreleased songs: a cover version of Bobby Brown's 1988 hit "My Prerogative," "Do Somethin," and "I've Just Begun (Having My Fun)." The single "My Prerogative" became her fourth Mainstream Top 40 hit of the year, giving her the most songs on Mainstream Top 40 at that point in the decade with a total of 14. Spears also landed 4th place for the artist with the most charted titles in the history of the chart.

The platinum album "Circus" debuted at No. 1 and made Spears the first female ever to have five No. 1 album debuts. Worldwide, the album has sold in excess of three million albums. "Circus" reunites Spears with previous collaborators Max Martin, Danja and Bloodshy & Avant and her latest video for "If You See Amy" recently wrapped shooting in Los Angeles and was directed by Jake Nava (Beyonce, Shakira, P!nk). Spears' single "Circus" reached No. 1 song on the Top 40 radio charts and was her fifth No. 1 song overall.

Spears' arena tour, "The Circus Starring Britney Spears" kicked off in New Orleans in 2009.
