You watched “The X Factor” this season, right? With Britney Spears? And her non-answers and her deer-in-the-headlights-glare? Yeah, it was super great is what I’m saying.
Anyways, despite bringing on mega-star Britney Spears, the show got lower ratings than it did in it’s premiere year when that judges panel was filled with stars like Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherz-what’s-her-name.
So clearly, hiring A-list judges doesn’t matter. That being said, Fox President Kevin Reilly would LOVE to have Britney return to the show next year.
“I actually thought it went very, very well. It was fraught with unknowns. I think Britney did a really good job. She came on, people remain fascinated by her and always will be,” say the Fox head honcho.
That being said, he has no idea if Britney is returning to the show next year because Simon Cowell is “on vacation.”
“For next year, I don’t know,” says Reilly.
He continued to gush over Britney, saying, “People got to know her a little bit, maybe some people were waiting for more drastic displays of some nature that never came…She tucked in really nicely on that bench.”
Some sources are alleging that Simon doesn’t want her back because when he signed Britney he wanted “crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney.”
Stay tuned, obviously we’ll know exactly what’s happening as it happens because we LOVE singing competition show drama.
