When it was announced that Britney Spears would join the judging panel on The X Factor, gossip bloggers began brainstorming predictable headlines about how much of a disaster Brit Brit is on the set. Us Weekly reports that Simon Cowell wonders about adding the pop tart to his roster.
No one was sure if Britney was coming back when she walked out, missing four auditions in Austin. But Britney's biggest problem is that she “always said nice things, even telling one mediocre singer he could be ‘bigger than Justin Bieber.’ Simon was shocked!”
A source cautions "I don't know how she's going to handle the live shows!" but that Simon "doesn't regret hiring Britney."
Britney will be paid $15 million to essentially just smile. She just doesn't care enough about the contestants to give useful critiques. Britney is ratings gold. If she is a train wreck on the show and you know she will be, that's exactly why people will be tuning in!
