I’m not one for caring at all about reality television, nor do I plan on writing much about it. But someone needs to give Britney a more accurate itinerary.
The “American Idol” spinoff “The X Factor” was holding auditions at Sprint Center over the weekend – the subject of a really good front-page story by The Star’s Tim Finn – and while BritBrit said she couldn’t wait to see all the talent here, she and the other judges apparently couldn’t wait to get the hell out of Dodge, either.
People magazine reports that Spears and her fellow judges – producer L.A. Reid, pop star (?) Demi Lovato and someone named Louis Walsh – peaced out while one contestant was in mid-performance.
Spears, Demi Lovato, L.A. Reid and Louis Walsh, who was subbing for an ill Simon Cowell, chose to leave in the middle of the audition rather than remain in front of a contestant who refused to look at them.
“I don’t think they had a choice,” says the guest. “They didn’t want to waste their time.”
The male contestant didn’t even notice the departure and continued to sing long after the judges left the building.
Radar Online breathlessly reported that Spears “conferred” with her fiance, Jason Trawick, right before leaving. They even have a photo gallery of the conferring!
The judges later returned. Presumably, Britney told everyone she was back. So that happened.
