“America’s Got Talent’s” newest judge, Howard Stern, brought plenty of shock to the latest press event for the NBC talent reality competition when he was asked about the report Britney Spears has signed on to judge “The X Factor.”

“I think it’s a wonderful decision, Britney still thinks the Earth is flat,” Howard said. “Listen, I think we’re going to tune in to see her, if she can sort of function through the thing.”

The “AGT” judge doesn’t think the pop star will be able to offer up any useful advice to the contestants on the FOX singing competition.

“As far as any real criticism, I think Simon [Cowell] and L.A. Reid will be doing that. I think Britney is going to stand there and eat a lollipop and wear a sexy outfit. I don’t anticipate great opinions out of her,” he continued.

Howard also took a shot at “American Idol,” while slamming Britney.

“I think she’s going to sit there like J.Lo and [say], ‘Oh, you’re wonderful. You’re terrific. Do you think I could get a perfume endorsement out of this? You think I could perform on the show?’ I think that’s what it’s about,” the radio personality said.

Regardless of his issues over the report Britney is joining the FOX show, Howard said he will be watching if it happens.

“I’ll tune in to see what kind of train wreck she is, absolutely,” he added.

“America’s Got Talent” returns to NBC on May 14 at 8/7c.
