‘The X Factor’ USA spoilers: Britney Spears, will.i.am brave heat for taping

It’s pretty interesting to see that will.i.am is going to be a guest adviser on “The X Factor” later this season given that he is a coach on the British version of “The Voice,” and we wonder about if that played into Simon Cowell’s decision at all to let him join Britney Spears in taping the judges’ houses stage of the competition with her this week. Regardless of if it did or not. will.i.am is a great choice for just about any panel: he’s funny, charismatic, and he has a rich knowledge of music both as a performer and producer.

And now, on to the actual story: we have a feeling that the Black Eyed Peas singer and Britney are sweating bullets at the moment given where they are shooting scenes at the moment. According to a report from TMZ, California has been going through a heat wave as of late that has seen temperatures reach as high as triple digits, and Britney and will.i.am have had to do some taping outdoors (as this has always been some sort of strange tradition with this show at this stage). While it would be easy to sit here and tell Britney or anyone else filming outdoors to tough it out, this is actually a much harder process than you would think. The producers have to make it look as though it is not 100 degrees outside, which is hard to do given all of the sweat that is probably coming out of this. In addition to that, these filming days are long … think longer than any normal person would ever work in a single day.

Do you think dealing with this sort of heat would make the show rethink where it wants to film some of these scenes? We want to hear your thoughts below! If you want to see more news related to the Don Philip incident with Britney that aired on the show this past week, be sure and read the story over at the link here.
