'X-Factor'

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.

Oh God, give me a break. This so damn staged it is painfully obvious. Even without seeing it. All four of them are not going to walk off just because of this. Maybe one of them would in a really, really quirky moment. But come on. Get your heads out of your asses, people. This reality crap is far from real.

ummm?!    

Instead of walking off, a simple hand gesture to stop singing, would have been a lot more professional.

Britney needed more time probably to swallow a couple more Valium and anti anxiety medication...

So because it drew publicity the first time, they all decide to do it...and apparently it worked to get more publicity. This show is so gimmicky and tries way too hard, not to mention it's the worst of the singing competitions on network television.

Stupid stunts all to get more people to watch. Sad thing is most people think they actually didn't plan it. People are such suckers.

Enough is enough TMZ! You are OBVIOUSLY being being paid to run these stories that are being handed to you by the X Factor people themselves. I've seen you do this on other stories, but this is particularly blatant.

They would have just left early for their normal break. Everyone's commenting on a contrived story.

Oh please, judges, get over yourselves already!

Its not like any of you are doing important work to help save mankind. You are on a crappy talent show that no one gives a sh!t about.

Who watches this crap anymore?
