Brand new X Factor judge Britney Spears showed up for her first day of work as the show taped its first round of auditions in Austin, Texas earlier today. The pop star wore a tight little pink dress with a shear midriff that could prove to be quite the distraction for all the aspiring heterosexual males and lesbians trying out for the show! My guess is that we will see a leery, but approving, side-eye from Simon Cowell during the premiere.
And speaking of Simon Cowell, it appears as though the drama has already started! Here’s Britney’s tweet upon arrival at the Erwin Center in Austin:
Just arrived for @TheXFactorUSA auditions – hope everyone is ready! Still waiting on @SimonCowell of course….
While Britney was waiting she took time to sign autographs for some of the many screaming fans waiting outside the arena:
Simon did eventually arrive, and he was wearing his infamous work uniform consisting of a white t-shirt and jeans:
Britney’s fellow judging newbie Demi Lovato arrived in a bright yellow and black dress with black jacket:
And LA Reid showed up in a suit. ***yawn***
UPDATE - LA Reid just tweeted, “Day 1 @TheXFactorUSA and I have already been cut to shreds by @ddlovato. Let the games begin!” Sounds like fun!
(With Instagram filters taking over the world its going to be harder and harder to tell the actual colors of things.)
X Factor will be taping in Austin, Texas for two days before moving on.
UPDATE - Here’s a photo from inside the auditions with Simon Cowell, Britney Spears, Demi Lovato, and LA Reid (in that order) sitting at the judges’ table!
