Simon Cowell says Britney Spears ‘couldn’t talk’ On ‘X Factor‘ which is why she was eventually let go. Simon spoke with Ellen about the fired pop star.”There was a time where I think everybody was trying to up themselves in terms of who could find the biggest known star to be on a panel.” Jennifer Lopez went to American Idol and Christin Aguilra was on The Voice.“And so we thought, ‘well, we’ll take Britney. And she was fine, but I think she found it very uncomfortable.”
“She’s not a big talker,” DeGeneres added. “I didn’t realize that,” Cowell said with a chuckle. “I kind of booked someone who couldn’t talk, which is a bit of a problem when you want someone to judge. She was just uncomfortable … I liked her … so we decided to change it this year and I thought, ‘I’ll work with three girls,’ because I like working with girls,” Cowell said…he kept Demi Lovato and added Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio.
