LA Reid has said that he believes Britney Spears
could have won The X Factor
had the show been around in the 1990s.
The music mogul is currently judging the upcoming season of The X Factor USA
alongside Spears and fellow judges Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato.
When asked if he thought the 'Hold It Against Me' singer could have won the competition had she ever competed, Reid told TMZ
that it would "depend on who the judges were".
He added: "If I was a judge, she would have won."
Reid also revealed that he enjoys working with Spears, who signed on with Lovato to replace former judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.
"Britney is doing amazing," he said. "She's a lot of fun."
The producer had no comment on recent reports that he, Spears, Lovato, and guest judge Louis Walsh walked out on an audition
in Kansas City, teasing: "You'll have to watch the show." The X Factor USA
returns to Fox this fall.Photo gallery - 'The X Factor' USA judges arrive in Kansas:
