Give me a break. The X Factor needs to quietly into that good night. Is anyone still watching? If you are, will you still be watching if the Kardashians over take the show? L.A. Reid has already thrown in the towel once this season draws to a close, and rumors abound that Britney Spears will be getting fired for causing viewers to fall asleep while she's talking. It's clearly run its course.
Of course, Simon Cowell isn't willing to face facts. Instead, he's trying to salvage the American version of the talent show with an influx of new judges. Unfortunately for Simon, he's dipping into a pool of celebrities who won't likely take the bait. Oh wait, he wants Kim Kardashian. She'll do it…and she know a lot about music, right?
Sit back and relax. Let's delve into the X Factor's latest drama and then segue into some additional Kim K. drama. Is she preggers? Has she pressured brother Rob to go under the knife? These, my friends, are burning questions!
Bye, bye, bye…BYE-BYE! Oh, wait. That's not a Britney Spears' hit, that's a song made famous by her teenage love Justin Timberlake and his former boy band 'N SYNC. Regardless of who sang the song, it seems fitting as rumors are flying about Brit-Brit's comeback ending before it's time. Sigh.
After multiple weddings, head shaving, umbrella attacks, and conservatorships, an iconic Britney seemed to (sadly) crumble under incredible personal and professional pressures right before our very eyes, only to be revived by Simon Cowell as a judge on The X Factor. While she still seemed extremely fragile, I think everyone was rooting for her. Sadly, it seems that Britney didn't rise to her new calling. Sources are now saying that the former international pop star is on the chopping block. You know what? Maybe that's a good thing. She's talented, she's got precious children, and she's richer than all of us put together…perhaps she needs to take some time for herself to decompress and while getting away from the public eye. There is no shame in that, Britney!
Also in attendance last night was LeAnn Rimes. She took some time off from singing about lusting after another woman's husband long enough to ruin what would've been a perfect performance by Carly RoseSoneclar. LeAnn used to have an amazing voice, but this was a trainwreck!

The X Factor just cannot seem to get it together. The latest dilemma to plague the show which has suffered from poor ratings and fan reaction as of late is that judge LA Reid is leaving and will not return for a third season.
LA is returning to his full-time gig at Sony. "I have the utmost respect for Simon Cowell," told The Hollywood Reporter. "He is the very best, and I have had the opportunity to learn so much from him. Working with him on X Factor has been a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I'm honored to have sat on the panel with such incredible talent."
Apparently LA, who has been a part of the show since season one and has survived cast restructurings, would prefer to return to his roots.
At the party, Britney shared that she was upset over the elimination of Diamond White. “It’s a little disappointing. I gave her a big hug." Despite getting the boot from the show, Britney doesn't doubt for a minute that it will hurt Diamond Whites' future in the field. "She’s going to go far. I think she knows, she has a good personality and she has a good self-esteem thing going on, so that’s good.”
What is going on with Britney's poses? It's like she's completely forgotten how to smile (and stand up straight) as she flashes these bizarre faces. It gives me the sads that she may never return to the pre-meltdown Britney.
TELL US – ARE YOU WATCHING THE X FACTOR? WHO HAS YOUR VOTE FOR THE WIN?
Beatrice Miller, one of my favorite contestants, seems to be one of the few on The X Factor with any freaking sense, and she isn't afraid to speak her mind. (unrelated but interesting sidenote: she's the voice of Molly in Toy Story 3) Did I mention that she's only 13 years old? Love this girl! Beatrice had a lot to say after this week's disastrous "divas" show.
I haven't been watching at all this season. I thought Britney would be enough to pull me in, but there just aren't enough hours in the day! So, fill us in! How is this season shaping up?
Others on the purple carpet: Drew Chadwick, Keaton Stromberg, and Wesley Stromberg of Emblem3, Vino Alan, Arin Ray, Jason Brock, Beatrice Miller, Carly Rose Sonenclar, CeCe Frey, Jernelle Joseph, Lyric Da Queen,and Julien Joseph of Lyric 145 and more!

Ouch. Things are not looking good for this season'sX Factor and all signs are pointing to Khloe Kardashian as the reason. It's no secret that pretty much everyone in the world is so sick of this overexposed family, but I would have thought this hosting gig would perhaps legitimize Khloe since it's not actually a mind numbing E! reality show that follows around her family as they get married do nothing…vapidly.
It seems that many X Factor viewers have expressed their disdain for Khloe getting the gig, and ratings have been Plummeting (yes, it's so bad I needed a capital P) since she joined the show. I know what you're thinking…she's only been on the two live episodes thus far. That's what makes it even worse!
Simon Cowell is being blamed for bamboozling Fox into thinking that Khole would be a fan favorite who would boost ratings. Little did he know that instead she would bring a boycott.
