Britney X-Factor Promo Watch: Uh Oh, She’s Nice Again

After the early reports of set walk-offs and general zombiness, Vulture was heartened by the first promo for X-Factor , which showed Britney Spears saying harsh things to real, untalented people (and calling them "sweetie"). She seemed happy to be there; she seemed to enjoy the put-downs. Mean Britney was a look that we could get behind. Unfortunately, Britney’s second promo is less Mean Britney, more "Someone Told Me to Say This Thing About Waking Up in the Morning" Britney, and the effect is … not as promising. So we would like to use this opportunity to offer some unsolicited advice to childhood hero and pop legend Britney Spears, which is: Go back to the mean place. Live in the mean place. Picture Christina Aguilera’s head on the body of every single contestant you encounter, and then tell her what you thought of Bionic .

Empty pizza boxes and Pepsi cans litter the floor of Miami's Fillmore Theater as weary contestants struggle to keep their eyes open and voices on pitch. It's Day 3 of The X Factor 's second-season boot camp — and it's also a reboot camp for the Fox reality competition, which struggled to find its voice after being imported from the U.K. last September. A new panel of judges enters the theater and takes their seats: acerbic Brit and X Factor creator Simon Cowell , global pop superstar Britney Spears , former Disney star Demi Lovato and record exec L.A. Reid . Even with new table mates, Cowell is still the same old Simon. "Arguably one of the worst things I've ever heard," he tells a group of dejected boys after their performance. "Shambles. It was a joke." Read More...
