What began with a bang is ending with a low-energy half-clap.
Looks like Britney Spears' stint on The X Factor is ending almost as quickly as it started, with reports indicating she will not be asked back for Season 3.
"Britney will get the boot," an insider says of Spears, who joined along with Demi Lovato this fall. "Producers wanted her for the long haul, but it isn't working."
One reason? Spears' massive $15 million contract, which one source sums up as such: "They paid all that for her to say 'amazing' and offer half-claps."
