Britney Spears on 'The X Factor'

<b>What we were expecting:</b> A revelatory return of the Britney we fell in love with a decade ago, complete with sharp answers and adorable banter, <i>or</i> an epic crash-and-burn featuring a rivalry with Demi Lovato and several breaks from the show so she could treat her "exhaustion."
<br><br>
<b>What we got instead:</b> More of the same. Britney is neither spectacular nor dismal -- she's just a glazed-over, propped-up, micro-managed harried mom spouting the same canned criticism and praise week-to-week.
