Nicole was a disaster from Day One. Especially over Cheryl. On the UK show she was kinda cute, but you could tell how vapid she was on that version. Her biggest soundbite was telling an obviously terrible singer "I think you need to work on your vocals..." Well no [!@#$%^&*], lol.
I just read this spot on post by Archvile6 from PopJustice forums and it sums Britney up well.
[indent=1]But why would she be such a good mentor? A good judge? A good anything for a talent show? She herself hasn't been good at even one thing for 8 years, whether it be dancing, singing, writing, even looking like a popstar. I just am at an absolute loss as to what Britney Spears could bring to the table of a show looking to find new talent. Sure she sells albums (medicore sales, but hey) and sells out her tours - but that's because she has an old, dedicated, and slightly insane fanbase. Not because she's technically worth anything as a popstar anymore. This is purely for ratings and nothing more. There are so many other viable options who could've actually been great candidates for the job, but instead they go for a zombie with an enterprise.
I agree with him that this is a ratings ploy (which we all see), but it's going to be brilliant. X Factor needs some camp and over the top-ness. She's going to be Sinitta and Louis Walsh mixed together, but crazier.
