Britney Spears is allegedly going to be axed from ‘The X Factor’ after disappointing Simon Cowell with her “low energy” and providing “boring” feedback to contestants.
The ‘Hold It Against Me’ singer – who was on the judges panel on the second series alongside Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato and L.A. Reid – is unlikely to have her contract renewed and has only lasted for one season.
However, it’s been a lucrative season for the singer. US Weekly magazine reported that the 31-year-old mother-of-two – was on a one year $15 million contract.
The insider said: “Britney will get the boot. Producers wanted her for the long haul, but it isn’t working. They paid all that for her to say ‘amazing’ and offer half-claps.”
The source said Simon Cowell was especially let down by Britney’s attitude on the panel, saying: “He wanted crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney.”
