Britney Spears Unlikely To Return To ‘The X Factor’

Britney Spears will most likely not be returning for another season of “The X Factor.”

Last night it was announced that L.A. Reid would be leaving the show after this season wraps up, but now it’s looking like Britney might be following right behind him.

As it turns out, hiring Britney and Demi Lovato as judges for the show didn’t really do much for its ratings!

Now that it is obvious that Britney wasn’t the huge draw Simon Cowell thought she would be, her salary will need to be cut.

“Britney, who was signed on a one-year deal, is the first person who will be expected to have her salary chopped. She is on a $15 million contract, which is absurd given that there’s been no huge surge in the ratings,” a show insider reveals.

“Problem is, when Britney signed that contract she expected to make more if an extension for a third season was agreed. That won’t be the case now, and it is highly unlikely Britney will accept a pay decrease.”

There has yet to be an official announcement made regarding L.A.’s replacement or if Spears will return next season.

Will you watch The X Factor without Britney Spears? Who should replace her if she leaves?

They need to send Demi packing too – the show would be more respectable if you had music producers as judges not some air head from Disney channel and a washed up Brittney! You need someone like R. Kelly, Prince or Clive Davis somebody that knows what they are talking about.

Spears added nothing to the program except to its budget. Demi, on the other hand was a surprise. She was much more articulate and I would like to see her come back

Britney was the only reason I watched the X-factor, so if she leaves, so am I.
