'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.

Its a bunch of phony crapola to generate any type of cheap publicity for the show, if they think the talent was so bad simply put a microphone on Britnnay Spears and tell her to sing live, then when they walk of the set after hearing that then its for real!!!

First off, what kind of idiots watch shows like these? Secondly, I would hope Brit the Twit now realizes what she puts the rest of us through.

Ridiculous. Unprofessional. As for the dude auditioning, way to set the bar low. Mating cats sound better than Chris Brown, so you could have burped and performed better. These singing competitions are getting old. I love how people vote for this ****, but don't show for political elections. Idiots.

"but Britney need a little extra time..." Once again, TMZ shows their overwhelming knowledge of grammar and the language arts.

TMZzzz, stop burning her at the cross. Even in this article you try to add all the judges walked off but Brit 'needed more time'. GIVE IT A REST. BRITNEY, don't give them what you want. I know what it's like to live under a microscope. TMZ WANTS her to EFF up for a story. WHEN there is NONE.
