Now, it doesn’t appear she’s going to challenge Simon Cowell for the classic putdown crown.
But she did have the gumption to tell several singers they were flat-out bad.
And she did turn down one poor guy, Don Philip, who once did a duet with her.
Of course, she also voted to send Quatrele Da’an Smith to boot camp (X Factor’s version of Hollywood Week). And since he’s a male cake decorator who showed up in a wedding dress and pretty much butchered Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” … well, that stumble cost Britney some judge credibility points in my book.
In truth, we’ll have to wait until the live shows to get a real feel for how good and what type of judge pop princess Britney is going to be.
But, in the meantime, X Factor fans were clearly impressed by what they saw and heard.
I just sorted through about 100 tweets, and couldn’t find a bad word about Ms. Spears.
