‘The X Factor’ USA: See Britney Spears, Demi Lovato at judges’ table

Everyone seems happy now.

It’s already been a pretty eventful first few days for Britney Spears and Demi Lovato. Not only are they both filming “The X Factor” at the moment in Austin, but they have already been the subject of headlines. Multiple sources have already indicated that the two have clashed about various contestants, and that Britney was at one point even booed by the audience over being too nice to one of the bad contestants who tried out.

While things seem to be going pretty well in this first official photo released by Fox, Britney was inundated Thursday with rumors that she “walked off” the set after hearing someone completely butcher her hit song “Hold It Against Me.” So did this really happen? It depends on who you ask? While multiple source have claimed that she did take off for a good while during taping, Britney herself claimed on Twitter that she is having a “great time,” and that she just took a brief break from the auditions.

No matter what, it looks as though Simon Cowell is getting exactly what he wanted from the show already — publicity. How often do we talk about a show in the midst of them filming their audition rounds? Our point exactly.

Do you think that Britney is already paying off as a judge for this show?
