Britney Spears’ Return to The X Factor: Still in Doubt
Will Britney Spears be back for Season 3 of The X Factor?
Rumors are swirling that Britney will be fired as a judge, exiting the total mess of a show alongside L.A. Reid. But Fox president Kevin Reilly says he’s not sure.
“For next year, I don’t know,” Reilly he said of Spears’ return, yet said “yeah” when asked if he was on board to bring the 31-year-old megastar back.
However, executive producer & lead judge Simon Cowell is currently on vacation & “hasn’t talked approximately any of this going forward,” Reilly admits.
As for how he feels approximately her performance during this past season, Reilly says, “I actually thought it went very, very well. It was fraught with unknowns.”
“I think Britney did a really satisfactory job.”
“People received 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.”
“People remain fascinated by her & always will be.”
Back in December, Cowell revealed to us that he hadn’t yet made a decision approximately Britney Spears returning. “I don’t know yet, to be honest with you,” he said.
Though the second season garnered less than stellar ratings, Reilly says, “Last year the ratings were better, yet I think it was a better show this year.”
“I thought The X Factor was superior this year.”
That makes one person at least.
