L.A. Reid

Britney Spears Would Have

WON 'X Factor'

If "X Factor" existed before Britney Spears was famous ... and she competed on the show ... Brit would easily have won the grand prize -- this according to "X Factor" judge L.A. Reid.

Mr. Reid was at the airport in New York this afternoon, and we asked how Britney would have fared if she was on "X Factor" as a young teen -- and Reid replied, "If I was a judge ... she would have won."

But if Reid WASN'T a judge ... we gotta ask ...

Britney wouldn't win on a singing talent show. Her voice isn't good and never has been. I was 12 when she came out, went through the whole late 1990s teen pop craze, and have never understood the popularity of her. If she were seeking a singing career before video television, she would have been a failure.

Is this a joke? She can not sing and everyone including she knows this. How could she sing a singing contest?

Gotta agree with all the comments. Britney really isn't a singer, she is a dancer. Coming up who was her competition? Christina Aguilera! She would've wiped the stage with Britney in a singing contest.

Britney would have won X Factor? Impossible. How would she double her voice? How would she bring in the auto tune? If she stood there and blinks, she'd had a better chance.

So I was right. X Factor DOES allow autotune to be used as an accompanying instrument.

I don't care about TMZ poll. Harvey, used to be an attorney, more like an ambulance chaser, could'nt hack it, so started TMZ, have you seen him and their staff, first of all Harvey looks like a guy who should be saying paper, or plastic in a grocery store. Secondly his staff are all high school drop out with camera, this is what happened to journalism nowadays. So I have no respect about what knucklehead Harvey and his ignorant staff have to say period.

Britney is not a talented singer. If she there were no such thing as auto-tune, she would not be where she is. Talent is so rare these days when it comes to singing.

On these types shows it's not about talent. It's about popularity only. Then too, it's the producers that determine who wins, not the judges, not the audience.
