Britney Spears has made her X Factor exit and now, producers are left to figure out — yet again — who the panel will consist of!
However, it seems like those connected to the show saw it coming and it sounds like Britney beat them to it!
Reportedly, producers and Simon Cowell were already talking about a Brit Brit-less panel for the show’s third season and even decided a week ago that she wouldn’t be included!
An insider revealed:
“Britney did her best, and it’s fair to say she was a lot better in the show — and especially during live shows — than many critics had expected or predicted, but the writing was always on the wall.”
Another source said that it was “obvious” that L.A. Reid and Britney wouldn’t be returning and the now-former judges were aware of it!
Now the producers and Simon are left to figure out who will replace the two judges for season three… and they don’t have too much time to decide!
Wonder who’s in the running this time around???
