Britney Spears

Walks Off '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.

Good grief, toughen up lady! She is living up to what everyone thought she would do, and to think this is what $15 million gets, please let me do her job!

I am not sure why people have to resort to calling Ms. Spears names like ' skank'. She seriously has not done anything harmful or cruel to anyone even during her mental health issues. She may have just needed a break. No one knows why she walked off, so please stop criticizing. Jeez, that poor girl cannot do anything without people always demeaning her.

She had to go look up some words a contestant used about his voice,,Pitch,Harmony,Notes,Breathing,,etc. Things someone who can actually sing would be already familiar with.

Sounds like she's still quite a fragile nutter. I live in London and don't care for American Idol or the XFactor we have over here.

It's all mediocrity judging mediocrity.

Publicity stunt! But if it was real, I'll say, Aw well! Simon knew she was damage goods, and wasn't stable. At the end of the day, it's his money, so keep on pissing it away!
