Looks like viewers of this year's X Factor will be treated to some diva-like entertainment from the show's judging panel.
The Hollywood Reporter got word from behind-the-scenes at the Greensboro, N.C. auditions that L.A Reid, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato up and left the set when a contestant failed to sing a pretty version of Britney's 1999 hit "Crazy."
"This contestant was so horrifyingly bad, they literally couldn't stand it another second," the spy told THR. "L.A. Reid stood up and said he had enough and left, taking the girls with him. They all looked pretty pissed."
Shockingly, American Idol meanie Simon Cowell was left at the table dumbfounded. It's often been said that Simon is a softie compared to L.A., and those present during this season's latest rounds of auditions can sign off on this sentiment.
"L.A. gets very protective [of Britney]," said the source, leading to speculation he may be courting her to his record label, Epic Records.
The record label honcho told RadarOnline.com last month that Britney has good taste amidst a crowd of wannabe stars whose talents are "suspect."
Sounds pretty entertaining if you ask us.
