Britney Spears: Fired from the X Factor USA?
We’re getting reports that superstar crooner Britney Spears is to be fired from the judging panel of The X Factor USA.
The second season of the hit reality singing contest finished last week, when Tate Stevens took the title, and Ms Spears was a judge throughout, apparently on a $15m contract. But it’s been reported that she will be replaced in time for the show’s next outing.
While producers initially wanted her “for the long haul”, an insider has told US Weekly that her being on the panel just “isn’t working” and so “Britney will get the boot.”
A second source added: “They paid all that money for her to offer half-claps and say ‘amazing’.”
Yet another source is reported to have said that the show’s boss, notoriously hard to please Brit Simon Cowell, “got boring Britney, when he wanted crazy Britney.”
And one online commentator said: “We are crying out for Britney to bring something to the panel other than cringing, kooky facial tics.”
If she does go, she won’t be the only one. Fellow judge L.A. Reid has already said he won’t be returning next time round.
However, these are still just rumors, which Mr Cowell has yet to confirm or deny. We’ll be watching this space pretty closely, though!
