That's right, according to a source, Joan may be more on the mend than we might think:
HELL YES! This is EXACTLY how we knew she'd do!
Although Kansas City was only Britney Spears' second stop as a member of the judges panel on X Factor, the pop star is clearly getting more and more comfortable with every audition, and is telling it how it is to potential contestants…with NO sugar-coating necessary!
"She's got a really good instinct, and when she loves something, she looks like she wants to dance on the desk. When she doesn't like someone, she is incredibly tough. She's really massively grown in confidence. She loves interesting and fun auditions and is prepared to stick her neck out and support someone no matter if some of the other judges disagree."
But that doesn't mean girl is cruel for the sake of being cruel!
When forced to have to tell a hopeful that their journey had come to an end, she simply said:
"You have to be great to be on this show, so [I vote] no."
Gurl was MADE for this kind of role, and we cannot wait to see her mentor potentials with the same kind of enthusiasm and heart that she's clearly putting into the audition rounds!
You've got this, Brit Brit! Weeeerk!
