Eyewitnesses have said that Britney Spears high-tailed it off the Greensboro X Factor set after a contestant gave a riveting tribute audition with her classic You Drive Me Crazy.
The North Carolina man was partially dressed in drag: hair in a bun, kitty-cat glasses, a bejeweled denim jacket, and some boots. Another accessory for his performance? TEARS!
He told the judges that not only was he recently put on welfare, he almost missed this chance of a lifetime because he doesn’t even have enough money for a phone bill!
But sob-story or not, Britney walked off the set after watching hisCrazy stylings (with Demi Lovato and LA Reid in tow).
Simon Cowell stayed behind and told the contestant, “I don’t think she understood your tribute.”
But clearly she had a change of heart. Because upon the princess’ return, she told the contestant:
“I really respect the tribute. It was really nice.”
See! Look how well she turns things around!
