For Britney Spears, listening to an X Factor hopeful perform a cover of one of her songs may have been a total drag - literally. The singer has proved that she doesn't have much of a sense of humor.
Spears, 30, looked stunned throughout the performance, as fellow judge L.A. Reid patted her on the back. Judges Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell also couldn't contain their reactions, as they covered their faces with their hands. And neither could the crowd - but they seemed to be instant fans of the audition.
However Britney begged to differ, according to People. When she came back, she said, "I really respect the tribute. It was really nice."
"I had to fight real hard to get here," the tearful singer told the judges, adding that he was recently on welfare and nearly missed his X Factor call because he couldn't afford his phone bill.
