Britney Spears to perform in UK

Pop singer Britney Spears is heading to London this week to perform live on "The X Factor" TV show.

She also is giving two concerts in London in June. A Spears' representative announced those concerts Wednesday and said they will be her only European stops on a world tour.

Spears is expected to sing "Womanizer" on television this Saturday. The popular single was recorded for a soon-to-be-releasd album.

Famous singers often coach "X Factor" contestants during the show, but the representative says Spears will only be performing - not coaching.

The British singing contest is similar to "American Idol" in the U.S.

Spears is now on a comeback from a two-year downward spiral that included a divorce, a custody battle and public meltdowns.
