Was The X-Factor a one-and-done deal for Britney Spears? America's Pop Princess, who earned $15 million as a judge/mentor during Season Two of the Fox show, is reportedly on the outs for Season Three, according to Us Weekly.
"They paid all that for her to say 'amazing' and offer half-claps," a source tells the mag, with a second source adding, "[Simon Cowell] wanted crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney."
It's also reported that Demi Lovato will get the boot next season as well, though she actually did add some personality to the show through her bickering with Simon.
In addition, L.A. Reid, who also judged alongside Simon in Season One and mentored Season Two winner Tate Stevens, recently announced his plans to forgo returning to the show next year due to previous work commitments. (He does have a company to run, people!) Could Simon be re-filling three judges chairs next season?
Hey, while they're at it, the show should probably work on getting some new hosts to replace Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez, too. A for Effort, but it clearly just didn't quite work. Come on...
Do you think Britney and Demi will get cut? Who would you like to see replace them?
