Britney Spears has been under a bigger microscope than usual ever since joining the ‘X Factor‘ panel. As a result, when she walked out of the Austin, Texas auditions last night (May 24), tongues immediately began to wag. What happened?

TMZ reported that Spears was aggravated when a hopeful did a poor job of her song ‘Hold It Against Me,’ prompting her abrupt exit. However, E!
