Britney Spears ‘walks off’ The X Factor
Britney Spears reportedly walked off from the X Factor on her first day.
As far as divas go, Britney Spears is high up there with the Mariahs and the J.Los of the world. So, we weren't surprised when we heard reports that the singer has already been causing a scene in the new series of the the X Factor USA.
According to Hollywood website TMZ, the singer walked off the set at the Austin, Texas auditions, when a contestant belted out a terrible version of her single Hold It Against Me.
Will Britney be able to cope with the pressure of being an X Factor judge?
Thanks for being one of the first people to vote. Results will be available soon. Check for results
- Yes - she's going to be great!
- No - the pressure will get too much.
- Maybe - we have to wait and see.
- What pressure? It's an easy job!
She left her fellow judges, Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell and L.A Reid to listen to the remaining four contestants who were waiting to perform.
However, Britters has taken to Twitter and defended her actions - she tweeted: "#Britneywalksoff???LOL was just taking a little break people. I am having the BEST time!!!"
We guess that even the best of us would have to have a break after sitting through loads of terrible auditions, so we don't blame Britney for needing some time-out.
But, if this is just her first day, we wonder how she'll cope with the rest of the auditions? The judges have to tour almost the whole of the USA - so we're sure that Britney will have to sit through many more awful renditions of her songs...
Still, we can't wait to watch Britney on the show - we have a feeling that she may just be our new favourite talent show judge (sorry Simon!)
