Britney Spears

Walks Off 'X Factor'

0524-britney-spears-x-factor
Britney Spears walked off the set of "X Factor" moments ago ... and according to several people in the audience, she was upset after a contestant butchered her song, "Hold It Against Me."

Britney did not come back immediately ... and four contestants auditioned in front of the remaining judges ... and an empty seat.

Someone connected with the show tells us Britney was not upset over the song -- and that she "Just took a short break."

The show is currently on a break -- so we don't know if or when she will return to her seat.

Probably just a publicity stunt but if not the skank really doesn't have the talent to be burning bridges at this point in her pretty much has been career.

This is a publicity stunt. How much did the producers pay that singer to "butcher" the song?

Here we go, the first of the "DRAMA" concocted by the show (act 1 - Brit, get up and walk out so the press gets wind and runs wild in the news). What's next, Demi hears a 10 year old sing a version of her song and breaks down in tears because it was "SO BEAUTIFUL"? Meh.

She also would have butchered her own song if she had to sing it and not lip sync.

She needed a break in the middle of someone's act? That's professional. SMH it is already starting.

She worries about someone butchering her song when she can't even sing live at her own concerts?

If she needs a break from sitting on her ass and grading people's performance, then she better just give the money back now and let someone who's willing to do the job step in.
