We're learning more about this terrible tragedy.
Hey! It may not be much, but at least it's better than a flat-out NO!
A flub or two aside, Britney Spears proved this week that she is MORE than capable of holding her own during the now-airing live episodes of X Factor, as she was willing to make a tough cut from her line-up of teens and provide thoughtful commentary on the other acts!
However, reports have already surfaced which claim that with the reality competition already facing budget cuts for next season, the pop princess may not be able to secure a pay increase, and therefore, would not be interested in sticking around!
Don't fret, though!
Ch-ch-check out the clip in full (above)!
We don't know about you, but her facial expressions throughout the series so far are reason enough ALONE for us to want her back, so we sincerely hope that she's enjoyed herself enough to warrant extending her judging duties!
Either way, though, we'll be appreciating every moment our dear Brit Brit is on screen for the remainder of the competition!
Keep on KILLING IT, gurl!
Britney's teens for the WIN!
