It sounds like Britney Spears won't be hitting the 'X Factor' stage one more time.
Even though this was just her first season with the show, sources are saying she's quitting before getting the ax.
'X Factor' suffered through all-time low ratings this past season, and MTV says Ms. Spears must have realized she wasn't going to get invited back.
Fox has not yet confirmed her departure.
