Season 2 ‘X Factor’ auditions have begun, and has Britney Spears already had enough?

Fox’s ‘The X Factor’ Season 2 auditions have begun in Austin, Texas complete with the two new judges: Britney Spears and Demi Lovato. Britney and Demi join returning judges Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid. Britney Spears reportedly received the loudest cheers from the audience when taping began, and when it came time to critique the singer hopefuls, Britney was reportedly encouraging and positive.

Brit Brit gave the most “yes” votes of any of the judges and to one teenage male singer she said, “You could be bigger than the next Justin Bieber,” which of course, excited the crowed watching. The quote comes from leaked audio TMZ got their hands on from the auditions.

During a separate audition, early reports said that Britney may have gotten aggravated when a singer did a poor job of her song, “Hold It Against Me,” prompting her to exit the room abruptly. However, E! Online assures us that Britney just needed a little filming break. Phew! Cause storming out doesn’t seem like this new Britney that we like so much.

Season 2 doesn’t premiere until September.Let us know down in the comments if you think Britney will be a good ‘X Factor’ judge!

 

Britney Spears is officially “Judge Britney”!

Rumors have been flying about Britney Spears closing her deal to star on Season 2 of the US version of ‘The X Factor’. We can finally report that her position as judge on the reality competition show is final.

News first broke in early March that the pop star was in negotiations to join the judge’s panel, and just as speculation died down, Deadline reported that Spears’ team was finalizing a deal. It was rumored that Spears was being offered $10 million for a season of the show, and the latest is that it’s actually closer to $15 million.

Simon Cowell supposedly reached out to Spears personally to gauge her interest in joining the show, and has been praising her publicly, saying he is “fascinated” by her. Simon thinks being a judge on the show will be easy for the pop star.

Cowell was quoted saying, “I would think that if she’s managed to sustain a family, a career, which is tough, [X Factor would be] a walk in the park.”

It’s no doubt that X Factor has landed itself a stellar judge for Season 2, and we personally can’t wait to see the pop princess dominate reality TV. Tell us if you’re excited to see Brit Brit on the show, and leave a comment. :) xo.
