Britney Not Out Of The X Factor Yet

Reports swirled Britney got the boot from next season’s The X Factor, but not so fast… nothing’s decided! An X Factor insider tells the Los Angeles Times it’s too early to make any predictions for next year’s judging panel.

“No one has discussed next year’s judging panel,” says an “X Factor” rep. “Any reports otherwise are complete speculation.”

Cowell expected Britney’s presence to boost the ratings from previous seasons, but that wasn’t the case. If he expected “crazy” Britney to turn up every week, he was sadly mistaken, but was B compelling enough to secure her seat?

X Factor sources tell UsMagazine no one expected her to be outrageous, but they also didn’t want her to “say ‘amazing’ and offer half-claps.”

Demi Lovato’s said to leave after this season and LA Reid confirmed he’s out, but then again it’s ~all too early to tell.~

In an interview with E! Online this month, Simon Cowell said he hadn’t talked to Spears about the show’s 2013 season.

“I don’t know yet, to be honest with you,” he said. “I haven’t had the conversation with her whether she’d want to, what other commitments she’s got.”

In other words, see ya in the recording studio!
