'Boring' Britney Spears facing X Factor axe

Britney Spears is reportedly facing the axe from X Factor USA after just one season.

The show is losing viewers and it's believed boss Simon Cowell is placing the blame on new judge Britney Spears.

However, 'faces the axe' does sound particularly morbid, doesn't it? As it's Christmas, we would prefer to say 'faces pastures new'.

So yes, Britney is reported to be 'facing pastures new' after her performance on this series of X Factor USA was deemed 'boring' by some viewers.

It's reported that Simon Cowell wanted 'crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney.'

We can only assume he was expecting her to turn up with a shaved head wielding an umbrella, so can understand the disappointment.

Britney was an expensive investment for the show and it was hoped her name would rake in a few more viewers.

However, it's now believed that she cost $15million (yes, really) to  "say 'amazing' and offer half-claps."

Another show blab confirmed: "Britney will get the boot. Producers wanted her for the long haul, but it isn't working."

L.A Reid has also announced he will be leaving the show, which leaves us wondering just WHO could take on the role?

Which celebs do you reckon would be good judges?
