Britney and LA Reid leave X-Factor USA


The X-Factor

As predicted by TMZ, Britney Spears is to leave the ‘X-Factor USA’ judging panel after just one series. But not only that, Epic Records chief LA Reid has now confirmed that he is going too, stepping down after appearing on both series of the show Stateside.

This means that the only remaining original member of the judging panel on the US version of the show is ‘X’ chief Simon Cowell. No word as yet on possible replacements. How you’ll all sleep at night with such uncertainty we do not know.
