In case you were curious as to whether Britney Spears would be returning for another season of “The X Factor USA”, then you’re in luck! Britney has confirmed that she will be returning for the show’s third season. Next year, she will be resuming her duties on the show, alongside L.A. Reid, Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell. Are you excited?
At an event for the show on Monday night, Britney spoke of her future plans on the show. With regard to whether or not she would be returning, she said, “Yes, I definitely will. It’s a lot of fun. It’s different from anything I’ve ever done before, but it’s a lot of fun. We get to sit back and get to be entertained and it’s just wonderful. It’s really cool.”
Still, she has to continue the push to get her competitors into the Finals this season. With the kickoff of the first set of live shows last week, Britney had to say goodbye to Diamond White after she fared off against Arin Ray.
When talking of mentoring her group of Teens, she said, “They’re like my little children and they’re so young. And it’s just like when you see them do so well, my heart is like out there for them and it’s a really hard decision. It’s a really hard thing to do.”
Her fellow judge Demi Lovato says that she maintains a certain realism with her competitors. She said, “I’m spending all the time that I have with them basically critiquing them and getting them ready for the show. I don’t really have a lot of time to sit and chitchat with them. So any second that I get with them, I’m like, ‘This is what you need to do. Practice your pitch. Do this. Bye, have a good show.’ It’s so rapid, but I do have a little time during interviews and stuff when we do get a little closer and open up. So it’s nice. I do get to spend a little time with them.”
Britney’s protege Beatrice Miller said of her mentor, “Britney is the best, I had all her music growing up so to be able to ask her advice is amazing. She’s so nurturing. I was having a lot of trouble with my voice this morning and she totally understood. She totally respected the fact that I was unwell and said ‘Just do whatever you feel is necessary.’”
