This past January, Simon Cowell shocked the world when we cleaned house following the debut season of his American version of "The X Factor," letting go of judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, along with host Steve Jones. 

What could Cowell have up his sleeve for season two? How about Britney Spears? 

That's the word circling the "X Factor" camp. Although nothing official has been announced by anyone involved, People magazine cites sources close to the situation as saying "there have been talks" and that Cowell and Spears "are in negotiations."

Spears would certainly make a big splash on a show looking to rebound from a solid but far from blockbuster inaugural season. 

When Cowell was asked about the interest from Spears during a press conference a few weeks ago, he remained coy. 

"Are we flattered that there could be interest? Yes," Cowell said, before adding, "I've learned a big lesson: Keep your mouth shut. Don't give it all away."
