Simon Cowell Wants Britney Spears Off X-Factor?


Britney Spears may be getting her pink slip from Simon Cowell.

Rumor has it, the music mogul wants to fire the singer as the newest X-Factor judge. It seems Britney failed to live up to expectation and brought nothing original to the judging panel. Nearly 15 years of music industry experience behind her and, well, Britney seems to think everyone’s “amazing”, her words not mine. According to sources, Cowell feels Spears didn’t bring in the ratings and was quite boring. In fact, he and producers feel she didn’t earn the $15 million she was paid upfront. Ouch!

Although L.A. Reid recently announced the second season of X-
Factor U.S. will be his last
Simon will possibly have to fill three seats in the up and coming third season. That’s right, it looks like new comer Demi Lovato will be getting the boot as well. Since the show began that’ll be a total of five judges including Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger to get the ax. And we can’t forget the British host who also got axed, Steve Jones. He’s since been replaced by Mario Lopez and Khloe Kardashian.

Too bad for Britney, I really hoped she could have been a great judge for more than just a season. As for Demi, are we really that surprised? How did she get the job in the first place?
