Britney Spears Explains X Factor Walk Off
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.”
