"THE X FACTOR" CONTINUES WITH AUDITIONS
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- You can try to win Britney Spears' favor on "The X Factor," but maybe you shouldn't creep her out in the process. Cashier Patrick Ford brought a bouquet of roses for Spears and auditioned with her song "Circus." Simon Cowell said Ford had sounded like he had an argument with Spears, got drunk and decided to scream the song at her. Spears just said no. Cowell seemed frustrated with another contestant who went to great lengths to describe his concert -- then blew the judges away with "New York State of Mind." The judges loved a 13-year-old who belted out Nina Simone's "Feeling Good," but not the dancer Cowell called "Jersey Shore meets The Kardashians."
