The X Factor USA 2012: Britney Spears Fired As X Factor Judge?| December 27, 2012 at 1:01 PM EDT
It seems we have some unhappy people at The X Factor USA 2012 and rumors are saying that Britney Spears fired as X Factor judge after just one season! We all know the show has struggled in it’s two seasons to keep up with The Voice in the ratings and has juggled judges, but are they really getting rid of Britney Spears on The X Factor Season 3? FOX did announce that The X Factor would return for Season 3, but who the judges will be is unknown and now sources are saying Britney Spears fired as The X Factor USA judge!
Us Weekly is reporting that FOX is not happy with Britney Spears and her half-claps and one-line critiques, so she may not be worth the $15 million paycheck she took in during The X Factor USA Season 2. A source told Us Weekly, “They paid all that for her to say ‘amazing’ and offer half-claps.”
While I am a huge fan of Britney, I have not been a fan of her on the show. Half the time she seemed to be uninterested in what was going on and I think all the medication that she is on doesn’t allow her to show compassion for the singers she is mentoring. She is a robot and seemed too stiff for the show. Demi Lovato and Britney were brought on last season to replace Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, who were fired after Season 1. Demi has been a hit for me, even though her and Simon seemed to get a little too intense with their bickering as the season was winding down.
It seems that Britney was all about returning, as she stated back in November that she would return for Season 3. Now it looks like FOX is not interested in her return and paying her all that money for someone not even present on the judges’ panel! Of course, L.A. Reid announced he would not return for The X Factor USA 2013, so that would be two spots to fill on the panel and no word if Demi would return for sure or not.
