The 'Me Against the Music' hitmaker is embarrassed after she tells a male singer, 'You have a really nice soothing sound and I wish you could wake me up in the morning.'
Britney Spears gets the highlight in a new promo of "The X Factor (US)" season 2. Showing the "Womanizer" songstress giving nice as well as harsh comments to the contestants, the video also captures her in an awkward moment when she unwittingly flirts with a male singer.
"You have a really nice soothing sound and I wish you could wake me up in the morning," she praises the contestant. She quickly adds, "Singing!," but is nonetheless left blushing with her flirty statement. Her fellow judge Demi Lovato breaks into laughs, while Simon Cowell quips, "Awkward."
During a TCA press conference in July, Simon called Britney a "quite mean" judge, but Demi quickly defended her, "She's tough, she's not mean. She's a sweetheart who is very honest." Describing her own judging style, the mother of two once claimed, "I feel like my judging style is very subtle. I try to use constructive criticism."
Britney and Demi are tapped to join Simon and L.A. Reid in the judging panel of "X Factor (US)" season 2 that will premiere Wednesday, September 12 at 8/7c on FOX. Nick Jonas and Justin Bieber were recently announced to help mentor Demi's and L.A.'s team respectively in the judges' house round.
