X Factor to TMZ

'Play Nice'

Simon Cowell and Britney Spears want TMZ to know ... despite our stories about Britney having a tough time judging "X Factor"  ... they couldn't be happier. Let's be real -- Britney says she's talking to Harvey in the video, but she's really talkin' to you.

As TMZ first reported, Britney walked off during shooting on Thursday ... leaving four contestants to sing to an empty chair. Yesterday Britney took one short break during taping, but was otherwise much more outgoing than on Day 1.

We starting poking around late yesterday because we heard rumblings that Britney might be having second thoughts, but she and Simon want to make it clear -- Britney is going nowhere.

We gotta ask ...

I think all theese singing competitions has run its coarse. I dont think X Factor rating are going to be any hire this season then they were last season. Does anybody know who won X Factor last year. Lets face it all theese shows are is a plateform for superstar artist to come on tv and play a song from there new CD. I think Britney was a waste of 15mill i bet the show does not get 15mill viewers each week.

Simon is probably the only person that enjoys his moobs with perky nipples.

Anyone taking short "stints" to the bathroom may have a substance abuse problem.

I have a good idea. I challenge all Brit fans to ban TMZ all together. No more watching TMZ T.V. show or visiting TMZ website. Thats alot of people!!!!!!

She was upset because someone "butchered" her song? Has she heard herself sing?
