X Factor USA 2013: Britney Spears to be axed from show for being “boring”
It’s been all change on X Factor USA since this year’s series ended, and there could be another alteration to the judging panel ahead of next year’s series as it’s been reported today that Britney Spears may be axed for being too “boring”.
US Weekly report that the singer’s £10million contract has turned out to be “terrible value” with show sources revealing that Simon Cowell had hoped for “crazy Britney” but got “boring Britney” instead.
One insider said, “Britney will get the boot. Producers wanted her for the long haul but it isn’t working.”
However, when quizzed about whether Britney would or would not return to the show next year, Simon was cagey, saying, “I don’t know yet. I haven’t had the conversation with her whether she’d want to, what other commitments she’s got.”
The Daily Star adds, “The December 20 second season finale was watched by only 9.6million viewers, down 18% from the first season.”
Judge LA Reid has of course announced that he won’t be back on X Factor USA next year, and there are rumours that Demi Lovato may soon quit too.
She recently took to Twitter to say, “I’m really really really gonna miss working with @LA_Reid.
“So many laughs and inside jokes. Truly blessed to know you LA. Love you so much.”
She also added, “Also I’m going to miss sitting next to the STUNNING, gorgeous and down-to-earth sweetheart @britneyspears…Britney…I’m gonna miss you.”
Here’s a look back at this year’s final…
