Britney Spears

Walks Off 'X Factor'

5/25/2012 3:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

I was there! She walked off when this strip club waitress forgot the lyrics to her song and totally messed up the entire audition. Britney left. The filming continued for an hour or so longer and she never returned! This was not a break! All the judges had just taken a break! She was the first to leave that time and all the other judges had to wait for ten or fifteen minutes for her to return. She sits through a few auditions saying very little then walks out again and never returns.
At the end they announced each judge and people clapped for each except they booed Britney for never returning.

I think she is too immature to handle this show! I'd hope she reached a place in her life to make a stronger comeback.
