All four "X-Factor" judges just pulled a Britney and high-tailed it off set, TMZ has learned, after witnessing the worst audition in the history of auditioning.

Sources at the taping in Kansas City tell TMZ ... Britney, Demi, L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell's stand-in, Louis Walsh, couldn't stomach one more second of a certain wannabe superstar's "singing" and were so disgusted by it ... they walked out mid-audition.

We're told it all went down because the guy auditioning walked on stage, claimed to be "better than Chris Brown," and then turned his back to the judges to sing with his eyes closed. After a few bars of melodic torture, the audience started booing and the judges peaced out.

The judges all eventually returned, we're told, but Britney need a little extra time to get over what just went down.

Our sources say the wannabe singer was later escorted out by police after he allegedly tried to swipe a microphone. That's no way to win favor with the judges.

Really. I'm getting tired of all these PR stunts that you continue to print. Does Simon really believe all this made up drama is going to send the ratings through the roof?

All these singing shows have the bad(william hung) type singers so for the judges to be so outraged is a fraud. Especially that Louis guy who seems to like the bad ones on the British version of the show.

Even if it was that bad, these aholes should have more class than that. Why did Britney walk off? She cant' sing without an auto-tune and hours of editing anyway. Classless B and C list celebs..

Scripted walk off of course, nobody sings that bad, unless you count pop stars who auto tune in studio and lip sync in concert....

Man, I would have given anything to have been there.

I hope the rest of the auditions are like this. Let these ****s earn their stripes the way real musicians do.
