And then there were none. It appears one X Factor audition was just too much for not one, but all of the judges to handle. So they pulled a Britney and walked off the set. During taping in Kansas City, one potential contestant gave judges Britney Spears, Demi Lovato, L.A. Reid and stand-in Louis Walsh a real earful. The guy, who described himself as being "better than Chris Brown," should have beat it instead of wasting the panel's time. According to multiple media sources, the contestant took the stage, turned around and sang with his back to the judges and his eyes closed. Of course, his singing was hardly music to their ears. Even the audience agreed as they greeted the guy with a round of boos. One eyewitness tells People, "It was really awkward. You could tell the judges were done. I don't think they had a choice. They didn't want to waste their time." The judge's opted to bail mid-performance -- and with good reason. Another guest tells the magazine he was one of the worst singers ever. In fact, he didn't even realize the judges were gone and continued to sing. But apparently that wasn't even the most entertaining part. TMZ adds that he was later taken out by police after trying to take a microphone. If his agenda was to get noticed for being talent-less, it was definitely well played. All of the judges eventually returned to the table, although it took Spears longer supposedly to recover from the incident.
