Britney Spears Gives L.A. Reid The Gift Of Song - AND CAKE - For His Birthday On The X Factor!

| Filed under: Britney SpearsDemi LovatoX FactorReality TV

She may be considered a harsh judge this season on The X Factor, but on last night's episode, Britney Spears reminded the world that she's also an extremely thoughtful friend…and a supremely talented singer!

During the Kansas City round of auditions earlier this summer, the pop sensation and Demi Lovato decided to surprise co-judge L.A. Reid backstage in celebration of his birthday, but it was our gurl Brit Brit who ultimately presented him with the delicious-looking CAKE…and a very pretty a capella version of "Happy Birthday!"

Watch it all go down (above)!

What an absolute SWEETHEART!

And the birthday boy L.A. just looks so excited!

But then again, who isn't excited to be treated with cake in the middle of a busy workday?! Ha!

Here's hoping we'll get to hear more live vocal stylingz from Miss Spears as the competition continues!

We don't get to enough!

    Omg her fucking voice sucks!! the irony that she's judging other peoples singing ability is hilarious and so typical of what shit TV is these days.

  2. 2

    She is terrible. What a talentless how.

  3. 3

    God, i love her.
    This just proves she can still sing, she just chooses not too.
    I hope she shows the world this voice again someday.
    It wasn't perfect, but it shows she is still a great singer.

    Her voice is just done. No wonder she uses autotune. She cracked at least twice. -.- i miss 1997 BS :(

    She sounded absolutely terrible. Had she auditioned with that song, she would not have made it through, nor would her terrible song have even aired. Just a mess. An abosulte hot damn mess.

  6. 6

    She shouldn't have done that or they should not have aired that. Loses all credibility judging a vocal talent contest.

    that was amazing. i love how everyone is hating

  8. 8

    Wow, you haters are delusional!
    I doubt any of you can sing any better, not to mention, you have no right to speak since your all hiding behind a fucking computer screen.

    This voice is still much better then half of the voices out there.

  9. Staci says – reply to this


    Talented singer? Really?

  10. 10

    WOW! people seriously need to get there ears check if you think that wasn't good.
    Some of you are clearly just hating for no reason and know that you can't do any better.

    My god, get a life people.

  11. 11

    I don't know what to make of that. It just seems like everything she does is so stiff and forced. I agree with Re: Katie – - I miss the old Britney too.

    Re: pollopicuRe: CAKMJLRe: KatieRe: MosesRe: Cha_Cha_the famousRe: Staci – DELUSIONAL BITCHES!!!!! How many albums have sold? How many number 1 singles and top 10 hits do you have? how many number 1 albums do you have? We do know she can sing better then any of you BITCHES!

  15. 15

    My voice would be shaking a bit too if I was carrying a cake in high heels while singing. But I thought it was cute and her voice reminiscent of her singing "back in the day." I assume at one point full-out dancing took precedence ver singing live. I'd like to see her strip down with an acoustic album, sing her heart out about ife experiences. Maybe she's heading that way.

  16. 16

    I think she sounds great! I love how you trolls sit behind ur keyboard and talk shit!

    To everyone saying Britany can sing better then all of us. It is than us. You lose creditability by being a dumbass. I also do not think whether or not we sing is needed when the arguement is, how can she judge people so harshly and most often rudely, when she doesn't have a great voice. She's all look, still looks great, he album recieved great praise, but all the reviews stated it was because they used her voice miniamally and without varying scale like a soft instrument rather than a focal point. Just an extra synth. Also, she has been rude to LGBT super fans who auditioned, giving those judgy, 'this is so weird' looks. She is a dumb, hicky republican who can respect her fanbase. Take some notes from Gaga, bitch.

  18. 18

    Re: Don't Hate! – I have none, but I'm also not making a damn FOOL of myself on national tv TRYING to sing. You're going to tell me you didn't hear her voice crack at least TWICE? Britney never had a voice, it was always studio manipulated. Her success has always been image not talent. You are so dumb not to see that.

  19. LoriC says – reply to this


    Here's hoping to her NEVER EVER "singing" again! It amazes me that she is judging people that can REALLY sing.

  20. sm87 says – reply to this


    You guys are all ridiculous - she has an amazing voice - it's a shame she doesn't bring it out more often. It's purely a confidence thing, understandably. Hopefully this X-factor stint gives her some boost in confidence to get back to her old ways… So far it seems to be working. I doubt four years ago she would have agreed to sing live - good for her. This makes me excited!!! Ps she looks incredible, and those of you who disagree about that and her voice clearly are just talking for the sake of talking

  21. b says – reply to this


    rihannas voice cracks all the time and noone seems to care. brtiney doesnt have the best voice but she does have that x factor which makes her one of the best selling artist out there.

  22. 22

    Re: sm87 – She does not have an amazing voice - she has a nice voice. What made Britney great was her stage presence, her performance ability, her charisma, and her ability to connect with people - unfortunately, all that has been dulled by her mood stabilizing drugs.

  23. Britney4Life says – reply to this


    She sounds great. Is she Celine Dion? No. She was never meant to be. Did her voice crack? Yes. But she still sounded great and let’s be honest - what celeb hasn't had their voice crack? Gaga has, Madonna, even the "great" Christina. This is a step in the right direction for Britney, and I for one am thrilled. Calling other people dumbasses because they have a different opinion is ridiculous. And as far as Brit's comments about her gay fan go - she supports gays and gay marriage. That segment was creepy and he I would have scowled at him too.

  24. 24

    Re: jushayw – Because she isn't there to be a vocal coach. She is there to offer them guidance into the world of music. Something she has spent the last 14 years doing. Britney knows a great voice, and what it takes to make it in the industry. She isn't the biggest selling artist of the 21st decade for nothing. She has every right to be on this show. This show isn't just about the voice, its about the X FACTOR, which britney has, seeing has your sitting here talking about her non stop. Britney has never pretended to be the greatest singer. She is known for her performance skills. Also, she is great to her fans, its different story when those fans are crazy freaks. It had nothing to do with him being gay whatsoever, so calm you hormones. Also, gaga's nothing but a gimmick.

    As one of britney's biggest LGBT superfans, i'm proud of what she has done on this show, and i'm proud to see what its doing for her. So shut your mouth if you have nothing nice to say. Its not like she gives a shit, cause at the end of the day, she is going home to her mansion, with her family, with her money, and livin' life happy, well your pressed ass is sitting at a computer screen talking shit about a person you do not know.

  25. 25

    It was a nice gesture. Best vocal, no. She will still continue to put out hit after hit and sell records. Very accomplished. I actually liked the uniqueness of her voice. And also, she is singing Happy Birthday for crying out loud.

  26. 26

    Ok, I like Britney and I am a singer…and she didn't sound good. Her voice sounded weak, unsupported. She was trying to put some slides in the song….that didn't work and yes went flat. I think if she has just sung the song plain and simple it would have sounded much better. Still, it just means her voice was tired, hadn't been warmed up and she was carrying and walking at the same time. She's getting better as the show goes on too.

  27. sm87 says – reply to this


    Re: rosebud99 – I agree for sure - she does not have the best voice (excuse my choice of words) but I meant her voice is rather good, moreso than even I thought considering her intense lip-synching and autotune stuff. Hopefully that will soon pass.

  28. 28

    this is why mother monster rules the world, because britney is a piece of crap

  29. 29

    she's so freaking adorable and i like it, it wasn't perfect but most live vocals by anyone aren't. plus her voice hasn't been well taken care of and sadly singing is a gift that you have to nurture. take stevie nicks for example an amazing singer that now sounds really bad.
    oh and britney knows good music she's worked with some of the best producers and artist in the world, she has tons of experience in music world there is no doubt.
    Also I think the show cuts different reactions that didn't happen at that specific time to make it more interesting or to start drama because I've noticed some bad and misleading editing.

  30. 30

    Re: CAKMJL – please don't pit them against each other, it's not a contest between certain pop stars. and lady gaga adores britney.
    don't start no shit, there won't be no shit.

  31. Katie says – reply to this


    Re: Dont Hate! – I'm not hating at all, Im a huge britney fan. But you hare delusional if you think her voice is as good as it was pre-debut/ late 1990s. She had great seconds in the video.. but her voice is shot.

  32. 32

    This is why these stupid shows are famous, because of all you suckers.

  33. 33

    Re: Katie – I guess we will have to agree to disagree then! Because i think her voice still has that uniqueness to it that is Britney! I think she sounds just as good if not better then Rihanna,Katy or kesha!

  34. oblio says – reply to this


    I am amazed that any of you thought that was good. It was terrible, I am no hater, I like Britney. Those of you who think that proves she can sing are hanging on to your delusions. It was absolutely TERRIBLE!

  35. Lpgogo says – reply to this


    I don't get why they didn't sing it together. Seemed weird that Demi brought it up and then Britney just kind of "stole the show" so to speak….it was a good effort.

  36. Overit says – reply to this


    Can I just say that I LOVE when posters snidely comment on poor grammar, than proceed to litter their own posts with poor grammar and typos? Ha! Thanks jushayw!

  37. 37

    Well her voice still sucks. Nothing says I should be judging a singing contest like butchering happy birthday. America is so stupid for getting behind so much low rent crap. It's sad.

  38. 38

    Re: Dont Hate! – Uniqueness? How bout if you just admit you know nothing about music and your opinion is worthless. If Britney went on the voice no one would turn their chair. I can guarantee it.

  39. Joahna says – reply to this


    Who gives a fck if you think she can sing or not?! She obviously can. I think america has made it clear she aint no whitney or mariah…She's on THE X FACTOR NOT THE VOICE OR AMERICAN IDOL….The X Factor is about the PACKAGE why do you think The X Factor has made SUPERSTARS!!! The Voice hasn't! Britney Spears is a superstar wether you like it or not. Britney Spears is one of the worlds biggest superstars!!! Thats why she's there. YES she can sing!!! No she doesnt have the biggest range! But thats what happens when people try to compare her to others! Shes Britney! Nobody else…

  40. AntXfit says – reply to this


    Terrible singer… and terrible judge. seems like she only know few words.

  41. 41

    Re: fabulousdivabuns – Bitch my opinion has just as much worth as yours! Maybe its you that dont know shit about music. And you also cant guarantee nothing. And the only thing that is sad around here is people like you! TROLLS!!!

  42. 42

    She does have a good, solid alto voice. She was never a soprano or high vocalist to belt out the tunes like Martina McBride or Kelly Clarkson. However, she does still sing and sings well. Altos just have a different tone, tune, and pitch level. Overall, it was good. She's amazingly beautiful..body and face.

  43. 43

    Re: Dont Hate! – 180 million copies sold, 9 albums, 6 #1 albums, countless #1 hits lol…sold out worldwide concert tours…the list goes on…

  44. 44

    Re: jushayw – dumbass? Really? You misspelled two words in first two sentences…once if which is her name BRITNEY…I quit reading after you couldn't spell credibility LOL

  45. 45

    Re: Rybellion – honestly…like people are so fucking clueless it isnt even funny. it sounds great obviously she wasnt warmed up or anything she just sang happy birthday like people are so ignorant. she sounded great for just randomly walking out and singing happy birthday. everyone who continues to bash her probably sing happy birthday the same exact way. like they all just need to stfu.

  46. 46

    Re: Joahna – I could not agree more…thank you for posting that! people like you actually make sense with what you are saying. haters are always gonna hate because they are jealous and could not even come close to comparing to Britney Spears.

  47. John says – reply to this


    Re: jushayw – someone needs to send you the "i love all my gay boys" video britney did in 2009… so just keep on hating.

    Its not dillusional, she has a great voice. To say she has the most amazing voice in the world is a stretch, to say she has the best "pop" voice is fact. The tone of her voice and her vibrato is just amazing. Pure "pop" genuis. That is why she is BRITNEY FREAKING SPEARS!!!

  48. 48

    Wow you guys are never EVER satisfied!!!! just STFU!!!!!! She decides to finally show that she can STILL SING and you bitch say it's forced, that it sounds bad? wtf? YOU GUYS WERE ALL SAYING THAT SHE DOESN'T SING AT ALL! and to go from not at all to THIS and still bad? wow, this is how Britney always sounded, this is how we all hear her tone on her records. It must be so easy to have nothing to do but talk crap about Britney all day.

    I don't see your picture posted, sweetheart. Imagine that, someone condemning everyone else for their opinions when they're the most opinionated on here.

    Well, that was the epitome of awkward. She has the personality of a french fry. Not only can she NOT sing, she gave no credit to Demi, whose idea it was to get the cake in the first place. Bleh. Too bad I can't unhear that.

  57. Emily says – reply to this


    I actually hated this so much. In the beginning of the episode it showed DEMI telling Brit that it was LA Ried's birthday, and then all of a sudden Britney is like "I'll sing!" and then it shows this and Demi is just in the background and LA thinks it's all Britney's doing. it was Demi's idea for the cake, she knew it was LA's b-day, and she could have totally rocked "Happy Birthday" better than that has been (not that I don't respect bspears old music)

  58. MeHoo says – reply to this


    Britney spears is looking as old and haggard as the has-been crazy ho that she is! I couldn't believe how crappy she looked on the show! If she looks that old with all that makeup and the good lighting, I'd hate to see her in the light of day without makeup. Hey, brit, a neck-tuck wouldn't be a bad idea, you're getting the turkey-gobbler look! And may as well have a face-lift while you're at it!

  59. Bev says – reply to this


    She looks fat, and never could sing. Her voice is weird when she sings, like in Oops I Did It Again, like a cartoon character. Ewww! Cant believe Simon wanted her to do X Factor. He must not be as brilliant as he thinks. People who cant sing and have a real limited range (and don't have the decency to wear underwear) shouldn't judge other singers. She will shoot down the ones she is jealous of. Her staged BS sucks, and since everyone is saying shes the mean one now, she is going to really play that up! Her being on there ruins the whole show for me now, and i wont watch it because of that phony bologna!

  60. 60

    Re: BevRe: MeHooRe: EmilyRe: yo yo – Pressed much?? Jealousy is bad for the soul. Its one thing not to like her music but to then bash her just shows what kind of people you are. Let me guess you guys call yourselves CHRISTIANS i bet!

  61. gabriel cades says – reply to this


    the thing with haters is that they're probably jealous because they'd believe they have better singing voices but cannot accept someone like britney made it on top. inside they're dying to take her spot or to even experience a tiny glimpse of her success. they believe britney's success is undeserved.

  62. 62

    i feel like she was lipsyncing
