Britney Spears to get the boot on 'X Factor,' report states

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Britney Spears may not be around to see another season of The X Factor. A report has surfaced stating that the “Oops! I Did It Again” singer did nothing for the singing competition’s ratings and will be axed from the judging panel.

A source reveals to Us Weekly, “Britney will get the boot. Producers wanted her for the long haul, but it isn't working."

News of Spears’ potential firing comes just weeks after show alum L.A. Reid announced he would be stepping down from the judging panel and regain his role as CEO of Epic Records.

According to the source, producers feel they didn’t get $15 million worth of work out of Spears- the exact amount her contract. "They paid all that for her to say 'amazing' and offer half-claps.” In addition to her lack of enthusiasm, another source that show co-creator Simon Cowell “wanted crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney."

X Factor ended its second season Dec. 20. Cowell has not named who he will replace Reid with when the show kicks off again in 2013.
