L.A. Reid: Britney Spears Would Have Won x factor

L.A. Reid looooves him some Brit Brit!

When questioned about Britney Spear's job skills, the senior X Factor judge enthusiastically declared:

"She's doing great. She gives great commentary when she watches people perform."

Reid claims Brit just gets what the "X factor" is. the mogul describe the quality the judges are looking for, saying:

"I don't know how to put it in words, but there's a feeling you get. There's an energy you get. There's something special about them. I can tell you, ordinary people don't have the X Factor."

When asked how fellow judge Mz Spears would have faired if she was not famous, and competing on the show, L.A. responded:

"If I was a judge she would have won!"

No word on if L.A. thinks his other new judge (and rumored Brit Brit hater), Demi Lovato has the "X factor" too.

    Come on L.A., you know you wouldn't have gotten past her terrible singing voice. If she was a contestant the only way she would have won is if you allowed her to lipsync.

    You can lip-sync on X Factor? That's the only way she performs! He's full of it!

    Demi who?? Who is that person??

    No one cares about this show anyway. Once "The Voice" officially moves its time slot to the Fall, Fix Factor will be history and Simon Cowell can bugger off to Britain or wherever it is he is from.

    They must be getting desperate if "Brit would have won". The poor tired woman should just retire and raise her kids. I wonder if her gays will ever leave her alone.

    I agree with LA and I always point to Britney as the best example of what an artist should be. What he is talking about, is her charisma/stage-presence/presentation, lack of fear on-stage, her professionalism, and finally her psychological make-up, which is most important above all. Many people freak-out…on, or at the edge of fame, and destroy themselves, their career opportunities, or attack their mentors. Many are easily swayed by sharks in the industry who try to lure them away from their inner-circle and try to take advantage of them, hook them on drugs, alcohol, etc., so they can control them. Britney, however, shows-up to do her work, and she works hard, and that alone is very rare for most artists who become arrogant, and would rather party than do their work, the reason why Britney is still a Mega-star and many in the industy self-destruct and fall-away, their careers destroyed. Yes she has had her issues, and almost fell into the traps that I speak of, but her father was there to rescue her, and she listened…thank God.

    PS: Whitney Houston, was one of the greatest singers of all-time, but she allowed the sharks into her life, as did her family, and she is dead because of it–and the same of Amy Winehouse. Britney, is far-less talented the singer, that is obvious, but few are as good as Whitney and Amy, still Britney has the psychological make-up that allowed her to survive the traps of the industry, and that is what LA is really focused on, more than anything else really. Artists can be manufactured and created, but you can't manufacture a survivor, they are born. People like Britney, Madonna, and Lady Gaga, they are very special in that regard. I'd rather sign an artist who has it together, integrity wise, rather than deal with a diva that is their own worst enemy, and mine– and sometimes to discover that, you go for an all-around packaged singer, who is a jack of all trades, and not always the expert, rather than one who is necessarily the best at one thing, but is a jack-ass and is an extremely troubled person to deal with.

    BTW, Britney is actually a more skilled singer than most know. She dumbs-down her vocal so that average people can sing with her, an old industry trick ala Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Elvis, and the Beatles. The point is, if people, anyone can sing your song, and sing along with you, guess what, they tend to bond with them, and their songs. How many of you, or any of us, could dare sing a Whitney Houston song, or Christinia Aguilera, from start to finish, and match them, vocal line, for vocal line, or even try? Not many, not many at all, and that is the point, and the reason why Britney, Madonna and Lady Gaga are so very popular. Again, they allow us to sing with them, as opposed to them trying to out-sing everyone, including their fans.

    She didn't win Star Search. Why would X Factor be any different?



  12. 12

    Wow, I guess I too can win by lip-synching then.

    really britney would have won, yeah fucking right, the judges don't pick the winner, the voters do and if britney went on without being really famous she would never make it past the adition round, the girl can't sing to save her life, she can barely dance anymore, the x factor she once has is gone
