LeAnn Rimes defends 'X Factor' performance

LeAnn Rimes swung by "The X Factor" Wednesday night to duet with a young contestant, but the reaction hasn't been kind.

Britney Spears: Another season of 'X Factor' in store?

Considering that Simon Cowell already radically shuffled the hired talent on "The X Factor," it wouldn't be a great sign if he had to do it again.

Thankfully, he doesn't have to worry about new judge Britney Spears disappearing on him. The 30-year-old pop star, who signed on for a reported single season of the Fox reality competition for $15 million, has found herself pretty taken with her new job.

As she relayed to press at Monday's "X Factor" finalists party, she'll "definitely" be back for another season.

"It's a lot of fun. It's different from anything I've ever done before, but it's a lot of fun," Spears continued. "We get to sit back and get to be entertained, and it's just wonderful. It's really cool."

While their hosting abilities were fine and dandy, it was Kardashian who really grabbed attention, especially from judge Simon Cowell.

Dressed in a fitted black pencil skirt and a fairly sheer purple blouse with a plunging neckline, Kardashian looked great - and chilly.
