Britney Spears Reveals Mean Judging Style On ‘X Factor’ Promo

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.

This is quite the promo video, I like the idea of having pop stars as judges, especially when contestants are singing some of these judges songs! I imagine this can make the criticism even tougher, when it’s your own song. I can’t tell if Brittney or Demi are my favorite judge. I think they’ll both add some diverse feedback. I can’t wait to watch this season, this show always gives me and my Dish coworkers a lot to talk about. This is why I’m glad I have the Hopper. I love that this DVR automatically records prime time programming on major networks, with the Prime Time Anytime feature. It’s really convenient not having to set up timers.

Britney is just being honest. She’s not trying to ‘fluff’ anything or sugarcoat.

Anyone who has followed Britney’s career knows that even when she was younger (in old interviews or documentaries) she always has just spoke her mind on what she does or doesn’t like.

She is a smart business woman. She knows that being harsh on these kind of shows will ensure her to continue to the next season. The nice judges never last long.
