Did Britney Spears Walk Off ‘The X-Factor’ Last Night?

Last night during the first ‘X-Factor’ auditions in Austin, TX, newly-minted judge Britney Spears walked off set after a wanna-be contestant butchered her song “Hold It Against Me.” After waiting for her to return, the three remaining judges – Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato and LA Reid – continuing judging the next four contestants by themselves.

But was Britney Spears really upset or was it just a misunderstanding?

TMZ reports rumors from the Austin auditions that Britney Spears got upset when the contestant sang one of her songs and abruptly walked off the set. But other sources say she was taking a little break people and is having the BEST time.

It’s obviously in Britney’s best interest to deny any feud or emotional breakdown during her very first day working on ‘The X-Factor.’ Many wondered if Spears would be up to the task and to have a public meltdown on her first day of work, wouldn’t leave the cast, crew and contestants with a lot of confidence. (Yet, it would make for some compelling television.)

It’s not the first time a potentially volatile judge has walked off the set of ‘The X-Factor.’ Last year, Paula Abdul, upset after a contestant pulled his pants down and exposed the crowd, walked off leaving Reid to ask Cowell, “Will she return?”  She returned for that episode but not for Season 2.
