L.A. Reid is gone and now rumors are circulating that Britney Spears is either being booted off the judging panel or choosing to say bye-bye to her $15 million contract. So, that would only leave Simon’s hairy chest and Demi Lovato saying “You’re cute” here and “That’s so cute” there. This simply looks like the same pattern we’ve seen before (American Idol, cough cough). Simon is switching out his judges in hopes for better ratings next season. Our prediction: it won’t work.
