Britney claims to give ‘subtle’ criticism, but she goes H.A.M. on a singer in this new video, asking him, ‘Who let you on stage?’

Is Britney Spears officially dethroning Simon Cowell as the meanest judge on The X Factor panel? Fox just released another new behind-the-scenes look at the show’s upcoming second season, and it features a moment of brutal honesty between Britney and one of the contestants. “I want to know who let you on stage,” she asks, drawing a ‘surprised Muppet’ face from Simon.

The new promo also gives us an idea of what Demi Lovato will be like as a judge — and she seems a whole lot nicer than Brit. “Wow, I got the chills several times while you were singing,” she tells one singer.
