Britney Spears Zings Yet Another Singer In New ‘X Factor’ Promo

If Britney Spears said you sucked, would you hold it against her? Yesterday we saw the pop diva telling hopeful singers that they’re “bad to the bone” and “definitely don’t have that X factor” in a commercial for The X Factor. Now another new promo for the series’ upcoming second season has the songstress dishing out this zinger: “I wanna know who let you on stage?” At least she counters the nasty with some nice by telling a young auditioning male, “You’re really hot.”

We also see Simon Cowell ribbing Britney’s fellow newbie Demi Lovato by telling a wide-eyed fame-seeker that the “Give Your Heart A Break” singer “is single at the moment.” With so much guilty-pleasure cattiness from the judges being teased, it’s just another reminder that hardly anyone actually watches these shows for the actual contestants.
