An earlier promo of Britney Spears on "The X Factor" seemed to hint that the new judge has some of Simon Cowell's biting criticism in her, but a new clip shows a different side to the pop star.
In July, we watched spliced-together footage of Spears at the judges' table, telling one contestant that they were "very predictable," and another, "you definitely don't have the 'X Factor.'"
Perhaps so no one would confuse "The X Factor" with a re-run of "Mean Girls," a new clip Spears tweeted on Tuesday offers the kinder, gentler side of the 30-year-old singer.
"I'm so excited, I've never done anything like this before," Spears said. "It's really kind of hard to tell some people 'no.' It's a great process to be a part of, to help people create their dreams."
