Britney Spears Explains X Factor Walk Off

Posted by on July 13, 2012 at 6:05 PM EST

Singer Britney Spears is holding fellow US X Factor judge Demi Lovato to blame after accusations that she “stormed off” set while an audition was taking place.

The try-out involved a contestant dressed in drag having a crack at covering Spears’ song (You Drive Me) Crazy, and Britney was one of three judges who walked away.

But the 30-year-old star insisted she hadn’t “stormed off”, but was “following” the lead of 19-year-old Lovato. Spears also pointed out that she had been due to take a break anyway.

It seems all judges found this particular performance difficult to sit through, since the audience’s cheers had given the contestant false hope.

Britney said: “It’s hard to tell some of them no – I usually can’t look when they’re bad.” She added that her preference is for a measured, thoughtful judging style with constructive criticism, and that she had often been “blown away” by the talent on display.

“It’s nice to see so many special, talented people – I’m very impressed.”
