The “X Factor” competitor Paige Thomas was really worried when performing one of Britney Spears’ songs “Everytime” on the performance episode on Wednesday night. In case you’ve missed the show, we have it recapped here.
“Everytime” is said to be a breakup song about Britney’s ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake and Paige took the risk to perform it on the show in front of the original singer. Paige said in a recent interview, “I’ve been a fan of [Britney’s] for so long, so when I found out that she was one of the judges it was one of the main reasons I auditioned. Every time she’s played Arizona I have seen her, she’s amazing. And when I heard that song, I was like yes, I have been dying to do a Britney Spears song.”

She went on to say, “I was worried about that. Like I said, I am a Britney fan and after initially hearing the song I felt cool, let’s do it. But when we started working on it I thought this is going to hurt me or help me. To me that song is not about breaking up, I see it more about my dark past meeting the future positive me.”
She added, “Shedding one persona and moving into a new light. But right before I went on stage I told my vocal coach I was so nervous. I couldn’t believe I was doing it, am I crazy? But life is about taking risks and if you don’t you never know what you can do.”
