Britney Spears is leaving 'The X Factor'

By Stephanie Marcell,

After only one season as a celebrity judge, Britney Spears will be leaving the hit reality-competition show The X Factor.

According to Us Weekly, the pop superstar will be leaving the show to continue her career as a pop singer. A close source confirmed that Spears was leaving the show to record her eighth album and go on tour.

Rumors had been circulating about Spears’ performance as a judge on the series was not as expected. In fact, last month stories broke that X Factor producers were thinking of letting go of Spears as a judge.

MTV reports that FOX Entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly told the press that he was pleased with Spears’ performance as a judge on X Factor.

Reilly stated Tuesday, "It was fraught with unknowns, and I think Britney did a very good job. People are fascinated with her and always will be. Last year the ratings were a little bit higher, but I think it was a better show this year. I think she tucked in really nicely on the bench."
