Britney Spears quits X Factor USA

Britney Spears has quit the US version of The X Factor

Britney Spears has left the American version of The X Factor, it has been confirmed.

Spears said she had made the "difficult decision" to leave Fox TV's The X Factor after one season.

In a statement issued on Friday, the pop singer said she had an incredible time working on the US singing contest but that it was time to get back into the studio to record.

It was previously widely reported that Spears and The X Factor were parting ways after a season in which the show's ratings fell and Spears received lacklustre reviews as a panellist.

Fellow panellist Antonio Reid previously announced he was leaving, giving creator and executive producer Simon Cowell two spots to fill.

Demi Lovato is expected to rejoin Cowell on the show.

You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
