Is it the battle of the reality show judges? Time will tell, but for now, new "America's Got Talent" judge Howard Stern is slamming Britney Spears, who reportedly just signed a deal to become a judge on "The X Factor." Stern remarked that he'll tune into Simon Cowell's show to see "what kind of trainwreck she is," and said Spears will likely sit at the judges' table eating a lollipop and wearing a sexy outfit. He also compared Spears to J.Lo on "American Idol," describing J.Lo's commentary on "Idol" as less than stellar. Reps for Spears and J.Lo were unavailable for comment, according to E! News.

"Glee" follow-up: Amber Riley (Mercedes Jones) is clearing up a rumor. She tweeted earlier this week that she just "closed a chapter" in her life, leading many to wonder whether she's leaving the Fox show. Now, she's explaining that's not the case. She tweeted: "My tweet apparently has been misconstrued. I was not confirming I was leaving the show. Just stating that I would miss being in the classroom everyday with the cast and that would be changing. Thanks for the support guys :)"

In other "Glee"-related news, Cory Monteith, Finn Hudson on the show, is turning 30 today. Yes, 30. Pretty good for someone who plays a high school senior.

Stay tuned for ... Next week's "Dancing With the Stars" elimination on Tuesday night, and "American Idol" elimination on Thursday night.
