Britney Spears

Wobbly Start in 'X Factor'

Return

6/8/2012 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0608_britney_spears_infBritney Spears just showed up in Kansas City, Missouri for her second round of "X Factor" judging ... and so far, not a SINGLE meltdown -- though there was a rocky entrance.

Brit stumbled in her high heels as she exited her limo, but quickly recovered ... to begin her first judging gig since San Antonio two weeks ago -- when Britney mysteriously walked off set and disappeared for several acts.

We're told Britney's bringing her A-game today -- showing up on time in a sexy white dress and signing autographs for adoring fans.

That's not to say things are going perfectly -- Simon Cowell is a no-show today due to a bad case of bronchitis. UK "X Factor" judge Louis Walsh is filling in.

L.A. Reid and Demi Lovato were also there.

We're told Britney was especially tough with Simon absent -- and the shocking audition of the day went to an Elvis wannabe who told, "Your look was a little much, and everything was messed up. But I found you interestingly entertaining."

'So is the fourth judge.' Demi is a bigger star and a much better judge than Nicole was. Funny TMZ didn't have a problem remembering Nicole's name. Guess it shows where their minds are!

I'm no fan of Demi as a judge (or Demi as a singer) but that's no reason to dis her. For some reason Simon Cowell thought she would make a good judge. I don't know what that reason could be but still, I think we should give her chance before dismissing her. Britney looks better here than she did before. Maybe she'll gain confidence and do a decent job.

"...Britney mysteriously walked off set and disappeared for several acts." Umm maybe it's possible that celebrities need to use the restroom from time to time like the rest of us?

Why do women wear high heels? How can you walk in those shoes? I wear Nike running shoes all of the time, and I get a work out even when I'm not at the gym.
