Last year when Fox announced that Britney Spears was going to be a judge on The X Factor, we were really curious what she would bring to the show. But then we realized that she really is quite boring and doesn’t have a lot to say, so we kind of knew she wouldn’t bring much to the Fox singing competition.
Well seems like the last person to know that was Simon Cowell and now according to Us Weekly, he is planning to X her from the show like he has done to Cheryl Cole, Nicole Scherzinger, Paula Abdul and Steve Jones.
One source told the mag, “They paid all that for her to say ‘amazing’ and offer half-claps.” She reportedly got $15 million for the gig and instead of helping ratings, the show lost a chunk of their viewers from the first season. But I wouldn’t blame her for that, I would blame the show because it hasn’t changed its format since American Idol launched. At least The Voice changes it up, so you never what will happen throughout the season.
Another source said, “He (Cowell) wanted crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney.” Even when she was “Crazy Britney”, it was a different type of crazy. She has always been boring in interviews and that never changed.
So now Cowell has two slots to fill at the judging table and many of us are wishing the show would just be replaced too. Because let’s be real, the show might do OK for Fox in the ratings but it hasn’t done well with producing any buzz or singers.
Would anyone miss the show if it was gone? And how many of you knew it was still on?
