Everybody can sing that song. No surprise. LOL. Try to sing TOXIC live once ? def fail hard

She has an amazing voice, and she definetly has the X factor, it’s Britney *****!

She might not be the best singer in the world, but she has a voice. That was actually quite a nice singing voice. Why doesn’t she sing live more often?

Angelic VOICE Really Feminine N Her Voice :) She is an angel

OMG! Britney is singing LIVE a HAPPY BIRTHAY SONG! LMFAO! Please you people are incredible! My gosh. Yes she sang a song that everyone can sing and she sang it off-key. Even my child can sing it better.

WOW! Loving Demi’s look!

I only watch x factor for her! shes awesome!

I wonder, if you have a singer as a judge, why dont you send the singer to sing a Happy Birthday song. Duh!

WTF?! That was horrible! But what else is new, do we actually have any talented singers left in this day and age?

my brit <3 i love her voice

Anybody can sing this. And she didn’t sound THAT amazing….. but I still think she should do LIVE more often. As she’s supposed to be a singer artist.

ugly stupid fat has been.

Haters gonna hate.
Brit sounded great!

That was awful and sounded like she was struggling. It’s embarrassing that someone who can’t sing is judging a singing a singing competition.

Surprisingly she is not a bad judge, but she still can’t sing.

Ohh sweet!

I loove her voice!

@BornThisWay: To all those people saying “anyone can sing that song” i’d LOVE to hear you sing it half as good as that! She is an entertainer and she has a decent voice, she’s on the radio and you’re not!

Come on people! let’s be honest just for a minute, if you were a teenager in the 90′s and 00′s you obviously sang a song of Britney, maybe in the shower or maybe in your dreams but that’s for sure! go Britney!


Well I wouldn’t turn my charire for this voice…

I enjoyed watching Britney Spears singing live. I think she has a wonderful voice and I wish she would sing me happy birthday. She’s done a wonderful job over the past few episodes of The X Factor. Britney’s the whole reason I’m watching this season and I get to enjoy the show commercial free. Since I’ve upgraded to the Hopper DVR I can get all my PrimeTime Anytime shows recorded everyday. After my shows have recorded, I have the option to watch them commercial free. This lets me stay focused on my shows instead of having to manually fast forward every ten minutes. I’m glad my coworker at DISH recommended this. This feature isn’t available until a day after my shows on primetime have recorded. This will save some wear and tear on the remote since I recently had to replace it.

That was AWFUL. Can we please call Christina or dig up Marilyn Monroe to show Britney how Happy Birthday is really sang?
