'X Factor' host Mario Lopez jokes with Britney Spears that he should be one of her back-up dancers

X Factor judge Britney Spears and co-host Mario Lopez joked around about Lopez being one of her back-up dancers.

Talking about a possible Spears performance sometime down the line on the show, Lopez mused “If she performs she should do it with that big snake that she did with the MTV video music awards.”

He even offered, "I'll be one of her backup dancers.”

Spears seemed fine with this, telling Extra “And a tiger, and an elephant as well! I think Mario would be a great backup dancer. Maybe he could have like a rip-away and then have a thong underneath. That would be really cool.”

Spears’ co-judge Demi Lovato, revealed which act is leaving her “flustered,” and that’s the all boy group Emblem 3.

“I need, like, icewater and a splash on my face when they get off the stage... I get flustered talking about them and I'm not going to look at them,” she laughed.

In other Spears news, she is in “discussions” with HarperCollins to release her first book.
