Simon Cowell now has another seat to fill on "The X Factor" as Britney Spears has officially quit the show.
In a statement, the 31-year-old singer confirms the widespread reports that she's leaving the Fox singing competition after judging for one season. Her exit follows judge L.A. Reid's departure late last year.
According to a rep for Spears, the move was her choice and the network has been informed.
"I've made the very difficult decision not to return for another season," Spears says in her statement. "I had an incredible time doing the show and I love the other judges and I am so proud of my teens, but it's time for me to get back in the studio."
Cowell brought on Spears and Demi Lovato last spring to replace judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, who were let go from the show after it concluded its first season. It was rumored at the time that Spears commanded a $15 million payday.
So although she hinted to CNN in November that she would "definitely" be back for "X Factor's" already-ordered third season, Spears has decided she'd rather be performing.
"Watching them all do their thing up on that stage every week made me miss performing so much!" Spears said in her statement. "I can't wait to get back out there and do what I love most."
A source close to Spears tells CNN that she might be "getting back out there" in Sin City, as she's "very interested in a Vegas residency, and is in serious talks with one of the major casino groups."

Dude... after watching this chick live on television – her mannerisms, her demeanor, her quirky litte facial gestures,...etc.... there is no doubt in my mind whatsoever that she is a complete psycho. There isn't enough money on the planet that can keep a guy locked in with this nutball.
Trust me when I say this – and you can write it down – she'll fall out of everything soon enough...........
they cause worms....thanks all have a great weekend!!!!!
also confirmed out.

my computer room took care of it..thanks!!!!
It's official...no one cares.
She's looked dead in the eyes for the past 5 years or so. Even when she smiles, she looks dead in the eyes.

good riddance to Britney ! She was useless as a judge and so is Demi so she needs to go too ! Poor Simon. He needs to bring back Paula if he wants someone to spar with. Its embarrassing to see this old guy with these young girls. He should have stayed on IDOL with his original crew.
spears can move that rear of hers thats for sure.
Spears has no following anymore. She's the new Madonna. Plus x factor sucks.
Brit, yo, I need some help putting up my TV antenna on my trailer
they are not needed here in America.
Jennifer Lopez was the hottest and most beautiful judge and she should back to tv as a judge, again. This year my family and I are not watching any reality show anymore, we miss Jennifer Lopez.
face fall award. thanks.
Spears looked like a useless Barbie on the show. Never had anything important to say and was so unbelievably fake. I'm glad she's leaving. I like her music but she is way too shallow to be a judge.
is beautiful and aging well.
her golden globe performance stunk–she didn't take her pills today.
speak of her to all now.
Alvarez..You really seem to be hung up on stink nuggets..poop..turds...stop looking in the mirror and comment with some intelligence if possible.
Angela we have a nice poo poo platter we'd like to give you. Complete with crisp anal cobbings, corn nibblets, nuts, and diarrhea gravy.
He's just upset that he lost an argument with someone in EQ2 and is taking it out here
Alvarez..You really seem to be hung up on stink nuggets..poop..turds...stop looking in the mirror and comment with some intelligenge if possible.
sorry..my fingers can't spell intelligence today I guess.
she's a rare talent that men go crazy for and she should be proud of that she's not a bore.
no attention required.
I am glad she is leaving this show, so should that Kardashian woman leave the show as well. Two annoying and ugly looking , jake boobs, hair color and all is fake . Britney and K Kardashian are useless.
pretty and perfect...
she is not nice.
we all know how old she is that's why everyone laughs at her...baaaaawaaaaaahaaaaaa
aging well, still can dance, ambitious, popular with the men.
looks perfect this evening....as always...
people need to take some beauty tips from britney..she looks so beautiful in this picture...she and kim kardashian are are the bomb.
Why don't women realize that gallons of make-up is your enemy
i only wear too work–makeup is off most of the weekend and when i have s*x...hate makeup all over the pillowcases...
thing over and over again–you date don't you? lol
Gotta make sure i go say hi this week.
You know what who cares i dont lol
brit is white n talented. She is blessed.
I'm cooking up a large bowl of trouser chili. Gonna head over to the neighbors' house and deposit it in their koi pond.
Take a picture! I want to see those fish floating belly up in a turd stew!
Gee wiz. My world is coming to an end...
Thats right max i am still a hottie fn hot to be more precise! brian you may go ahead and cut off all of your appendages just not your joy toy save that for me you hot monster!!! all my love britney.
Your so weird britney and your sure as hell are anything but a hottie:/
Britney, if you really wana hear just how much of a semi-perfect celebrity, model, singer, and dancer you truly are, check out some of the comments that people are saying about you under the article: Spears, Trawick call off engagement. Its got YOU writtin all
over it, lol!!!
would never make a stupid comment like that...she would likely be doing this....
is still a great dancer and her next tour will be a smash....she's back.
last night i noticed alot of kimmie wannabees...ha!
she is still a hottie :)
Bjork would be great on one of these shows. She would need an interpreter that can translate crazy though, & Simon might want a bodyguard between the two of them
Brian thank you for your loyalty and support withovt people like you there wovld be no reason for a performer to do what they do! the thought of you taking a bullet for me or lopping off your foot or head for me brings goosebumps and tears to my eyes! i am humbled to say the very least! god bless you brian sincerely britney.
Hey brian, you should have Britney bite off all 21 of your fingers and toes. I'm sure she would agree to it, won't you Britney:)?
X Factor: the irritable bowel syndrome of music.
It won't be hard to find someone more talented, more attractive, or a better mother to replace the overrated Britney. I hear Casey Anthony is available
America, home of the fat, land of the stupid.
I love how retarded you people are.
Thank you for entertaining me with all these ridiculous posts. Britney's crap, xfactor is pure trash, as are all of you. I cannot wait until China and Russia take your land. Lets go China.. hurry it along please!
this aint trash, awesome free rap album
our land ? last i saw your state was in this land to hag. i ain't been gone to long that i can't see who who. stfu the gut you have calling these ppl names.
I want to find you and then take a large steaming poop on your forehead.
I'd like to poop in holycrapola's mouth, make him swallow it, then take a poop, and make him eat his own poop that's made of my poop which i made him eat.
you're jealous of our 15 trillion $ GDP, richest country on earth. our #1 army rages u huh, poor little euro lol. relax, you can watch me drive away in my 500,000$ car while u watch 'khazakastan has talent' or w/e u have in iraq lmfao
Holycrapola would look much better with my stink nuggets stuffed up his nose while being forced to eat his own poop, which includes Triumph's poop.
Five forty two figured u out. 'fit eh'equals 'fix in texas eh'.
Nice use of stink nuggets Alvarez lol. The two of us should be ale to completely stuff him with dung. And then he will know you just don't f@%k with the USA!
We'll turn holycrapola into a dung piñata.
sweet girl...go brit
She's a millionaire. She should throw in the towel and live off her money and enjoy her children. It's obvious she can't handle fame.
Wooohooo! britney spears was a really mean judge
It will be their loss Britney! As you know, everyone likes to pick on you! That just means you are watched more than anyone else, and cared about so much. Reach for the future, and keep learning from mistakes. That is all any of us can do in order to succeed.
she was on drugs and was manipulated by a turd....now she's off drugs and fine
All I have to say is she lost custody of her children to K-Fed. That tells you who she is.
b-plug in couch
she a big fat scuzzy pig. them woMEN need a learn notta be so fat pigs.
I really appreciate some of the comments people have made on this blog! i am glad to know i still have some caring loyal fans and for that i am truly grateful! who ever thinks that i am to white needs to stfu! i am black on the inside and thats what really counts in the music biz. god bless
What a creepy and weird ass smile you got there brit:/ lol!! Yea, keep up the good work alright:/
Britney I am your biggest fan and I thank you for taking the time to express yourself to the fans on here. I would take a bullet or lose a toe for you
Starting the day right...just dropped a turd in my neighbor's refrigerator.
Nothing says good morning like a fat stink nugget next to the eggs and milk.
stink nugget – nice term! Gonna have to use that one.
Lamont is too black.
what can we say about britney...she does not have the greatest voice but she can dance and has a wonderful life
she doesn't need simon. she's much more powerful then simon...
she has her whole life ahead of her...
and knows how to keep a wonderful man..she is an icon in the industry. gaga sucks.
no comparison in relationship...Jennifer Lopez is annoying beetch that's why mark anthony cheated on her.
what was the guy suppose to do! hope everything goes well in 2013–you are a true champ and
some people are so jelous and green of envy of her.
i am suuuuuuuch a fan of brit and jlo...
your my idol and your number 1 in my book–
say he will not see others and wants to see how it goes with me? boy am i lucky and so is brit.

possible tour together?–no way...Britney is at a higher level then Gaga-Gaga is trash
See you on tour Brit-yay....
get back on stage girl...where you belong!!!!
Kim is a sweet person she's perfect to guide Britney.
that useless woman and her boyfriend are the two more disgusting people on earth.
get a band aid like the rest of us did this week.
women who cry for attention...hate them. not britney she's number 1(photo above)
-SHE NUMBER 1 ALRIGHT. SHE HAS THE POPULARITY, THE PERFECT RELATIONSHIP AND SHE GOT AWAY FROM THE SLEAZE...THAT WAS THE BEST THING SHE EVER DID....
ALWAYS KEEP YOUR HEAD UP BRITNEY AND CONGRATS ON THE GREAT BOYFRIEND.
That is really amazing.
she's not 0% like many woman today...she's still young and she can do it all just like kim kardashian.
she has the best guy and he doesn't even look at other women when they go out...its amazing
Best of Luck Britney (picture above)
Your number 1 in the fans eyes...i wish the best in your relationship, money and everything you wish for and why

In Britney's case she has everything a women could ask for. man, money and incredible dance talent and there is no doubt in my mind she has something brewing in her career for this year.
I wish Justin would have married Britney instead of that nagging beetch jessica biehl.
britney is not a nagging beetch...that has alot to do with it. guys stray if you do not leave them alone...
in Jlo's case she deserved it from marc anthony.
who wants to live with a nag 24 hours a day...not me...can't do....thats probably why he doesn't cheat.
in jlo's case she deserved it.
to a woman is sooooo important and she has it from this guy....she's a great talent, funny and sweet.
good luck on your next project.
can you imagine a guy your only dating saying he will not see others and said we'll see how it goes.
amazing. Britney has the same relationship and the boyfriend is perfect he does not rely on her to
i do not see the issue..she only signed on for 1 season. keep you head up britney and and don't
ever be lazylo.
that's why i love britney's relationship he reamins with 1 woman and he has his own funds..he doens't need her to survive.
i am so lucky myself..even with who i'm dating he said he will remain loyal to me because i deserve it.
brit's boyfriend is the best!!!!! she still has ton of offers and why not the girl can dance..and she is sooo
i am so happy she found a guy who really cares about her
beautiful and she looks amazing...not like some of the young pigs out there who look awful.
she looks perfect as a young woman
on a lazylo...they have the perfect relationships and she will be back to work in no time.
she actually works.
loyal and he has his own money...perfect...she's going to tour and preparing for a new cd.
she's not a lazylo that's for sure
and she has finances...she's doing better then you.
She is having a rough week....no job, no fiance....how will she cope? Hooowwww? Leave Britney alone!! arrrggghhhh oh she will be ok...hair clippers, umbrella....no prob
I pooped my friend's pants.
I prefer to poop in their shoes myself. That way they get to step in it when put them on.
Seems like Britney needs to stay away from having to express anything....verbally. She appears, uneducated, shallow, easily agitated and silly. Oops, that's what she is.
i m not a fan of your show i m a fan of america s got talent was a fan of american idol until steven tyler left and j lopez left not huge fan anymore now i defintely watch The VOICE huge blake shelton and adam levine fan thats one i will always watch
everybody go out and play..
I'd gladly take a steaming dump on her if only she would ask. But first, I'd consume a large meal of Mexican food.
I'd poop on her even if she didn't ask.
You're very generous with your poop.
I firmly believe no one should have to go without a good poop. I'm a poop humanitarian like that.
Oh geeeez she was boring! Good riddens!
Good luck brittney!
She was way better and kinder than Demi..Demi was rude and not that talented..
Great, more digitized music from Spears.... We need more people that actually sing the songs. Gimme Amy Lee – Evanesence !!!!
she's been working on a long time cd project. hopefully it will be out soon.
I wish her the best of luck, but really hope the program gets its act together and hires someone who can really judge talent effectively. She was only hired to bring people to the show who tuned in to see what she was doing. They absolutely did not tune in to see her great job in critiquing talent...which is what the show needs now.
She was some good eye candy tho. Could go get JLO. Or bring back Nicole–now there was some eye candy!
Why is she too white?
Sooo happy she is heading back to what she loooves
Obviously you do! You took the time to read the article and comments MORON
She was pathetic! No idea what she was doing. Just sitting in there telling everybody: I think you are AMAZING!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!.....
she was only signed on for 1 season. who cares
Reblogged this on tygasworld.
My prayers have been answered!
I knew this would happen. She is just too white.
