Britney Spears stepped back into the spotlight this week with her first appearance as an X Factor judge.

And she was clearly ready for action, making a joke at Simon Cowell”s expense at the first opportunity.
“Just arrived for @TheXFactorUSA auditions – hope everyone is ready! Still waiting on @SimonCowell of course…,” she tweeted upon her arrival at the studios.
Joining Britney on the judging panel was fellow newcomer Demi Lovato.
The 19-year-old quickly got into the swing of things, reportedly dubbing Simon “Grandpa” within the first five minutes.
And she gave also gave record producer L.A Reid a run for his money.
“Day 1 @TheXFactorUSA and I have already been cut to shreds by @ddlovato. Let the games begin!” he wrote on his Twitter page.
