Britney gets real in this brand-new interview! Watch & vote: Which show will you catch live, ‘The X Factor’ or ‘The Voice?’

It’s the pop-music showdown we’ve been waiting for since the ’90s: Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera will go head-to-head this week, as The X Factor and The Voice stage their highly anticipated season premieres — and it sounds like Britney’s ready to rumble. “Ecstatic!” she told Access Hollywood of her pre-game mindset. “I’m elated. I find they’re both really interesting shows.”

“In all honesty, I do feel like they’re two totally different shows,” Britney added. “So you can’t really compare the two.”

But Simon Cowell — who was seated next to the blue-haired Britney — was slightly less coy, saying he hopes NBC’s plan to air a third night of The Voice’s premiere against The X Factor‘s first night Sept. 12 “backfires on them.”

He was even less coy to TMZ last week, calling NBC “cynical, cold-hearted and unprofessional.”

When asked if she has spoken with Christina about her experience as a judge, Britney politely responded, “No, I haven’t.”
