Done Deal: Britney Spears to be fired from X Factor!

Looks like Britney Spears’ won’t be coming back for season 2 of X Factor!

According to US Weekly, the singer “will get the boot. Producers wanted her for the long haul, but it isn’t working.”

So what went wrong? Well, for one thing, they don’t feel she’s earning her $15 million contract. “They paid all that for her to say ‘amazing’ and offer half-claps.”

Adds a third source of show co-creator Simon Cowell, who is leading the charge to axe the performer: “He wanted crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney.”

Spears’ firing would be the latest in a long line of departures over the show’s short lifespan. In the space of just two seasons, the series has lost or let go of Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger, Cheryl Cole and — most recently — L.A. Reid, who announced his decision to leave earlier this month.

Spears is likely next on the chopping block, but Cowell, 53, hasn’t always had it out for her. During a conference call in October, he told reporters that she had been “a lot better than everybody thought…She’s very engaged…She has been, I think, a very, very good judge.”

Alas, their professional relationship seems to have soured some, as has the singer’s personal relationship with fiance Jason Trawick. Sources tell Us that the mom to Preston, 7, and Jayden, 6, has been increasingly butting heads with her beau.

“They are pulling away from each other,” a pal explains to Us. “Unless things change, they will split for good.”

$15 million for one season’s work? That’s ridiculous. I knew from the beginning Britney was a horrible idea, and I’m not even being paid for my opinion. How could they not see this coming?

Here is my beef. I support Britney in this. It was her first season. I think she got better toward the end. Also there are things in her personal life that are taking a toll.
Simon Cowell on the other hand just can’t seem to find judges to satisfy is needs. Yet we are suppose to believe Simon can spot talent? I don’t think so. Man if you can’t even find a judge for your show. How can you find new talent?

I think it’s more about ratings… they probably thought Brit was gonna pull over a tons more. I tried watching a few times (during the tryouts portion) and I just couldn’t get into it.

Ugh…. Boy they’re seriously getting this wrong if they fire Britney. She was an awesome mentor for those kids wasn’t she? Isn’t that what the show was for? To mold amateurs to the next level?

Hire Paula Abdul back if you want babbling incoherence. If anyone needs to be fired from that show it’s Demi Lovato for being such a rude, disrespectful little ass. Throw L.A. Reid into that list too for that matter. I don’t know how he got so far in the music biz without having a working knowledge of the word ‘Harmony’.
