However, it seems like those connected to the show saw it coming and it sounds like Britney beat them to it!
“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???
