Britney Spears’ time on The X Factor might be up, if rumours coming out of the US are true.
The popstar served as a judge on the most recent season of the US show, joining the series back in May alongside Demi Lovato.
Britney was reportedly paid a huge $15 million for the role, but insiders have told Us Weekly that the producers were not impressed with her performance.
They are now considering axing Britney and looking for some new talent.

Fellow judge LA Reid has already announced he won’t be returning to the show in 2013, while Demi Lovato’s fate is currently unknown.
The show has been plagued with judging problems in the past. Previous judges include Cheryl Cole (who didn’t even make it through auditions), Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul.
37-year-old country singer Tate Stevens won The X Factor this year.
