It's already nearing that time!!
After last year's X Factor pink-slip spree was compared to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, buzzing bees are already flying around in speculation of history repeating itself.
As we're sure you've picked up by now, WE personally find them to be the best judges to ever grace competition TV.
But that's just us… and we're not Simon Cowell.
So what does the big guy in charge have to say??
ON BRITNEY'S FATE, WHETHER OR NOT SHE WILL/CAN RETURN
"Who knows. I don’t know. We’ll see."
ON DEMI'S FATE NOW THAT SHE'S LOST HER LAST COMPETITOR (JUST LIKE PAULA ABDUL DID… WHO WAS SUBSEQUENTLY FIRED)
"(Laughs) I don’t think that had anything to do with her leaving. No. But it’s that time of year. You’re always going to get asked that question. (Raises his eyebrows) And I’m not going to answer it."
ON A BRITNEY/DEMI FINALE PERFORMANCE
"I don't think it’s going to happen. I could always ask but I don’t think it's going to happen."
But don't they realize what a finale performance could do for ratings!?!
ANYWAYS… on to the fates of the princesses…
Let's just say that IF we were to lose Britney or Demi, we would have to take some time to ourselves and cocoon up in order to heal.
They have brought such life to the show, we just don't know what we'd do with ourselves. C'mon Simon… ya gotta keep 'em! Ya just gotta!!
