And although some might expect Brit-Brit to bring her Southern charm and sweet-as-pie demeanor to The X Factor set, it seems the pop princess may be taking a hint from Simon Cowell's signature 'tude.
"Very predictable, bad to the bone, you do not have the X Factor," are just a few of the choice phrases Brit utters in the 15-second promo.
The recently engaged singer has had an eventful run on The X Factor thus far. Brit had a teary reunion with a former labelmate in San Francisco and even stormed off-set with fellow judges Demi Lovato and L.A. Reid at the Kansas City auditions.
Couple this X Factor craziness with Brit-Brit's bite, and we're bound to see some fabulous drama on the boob tube when season two premieres Sept. 12.
Considering Ms. Spears is as qualified as they come, it's refreshing to see the songstress being honest with the contestants (even if there's a bit of underlying snark).
Don't worry Brit-Brit, we won't hold it against you, but America on the other hand? Well, that's up to you, folks.
Are you excited about Britney's brutally honest opinion? Or do you miss the always-sweet Spears?
