While Simon Cowell may not be too impressed with the fact The X Factor USA will be going head-to-head with The Voice this fall, Britney Spears doesn’t appear to be too worried.
The new judge joked that she is looking forward to going up against Christiina Aquilera and The Voice when asked.
"Ecstatic!", she joked. "I’m elated. I find they’re both really interesting shows.
"In all honesty, I do feel like they’re two totally different shows. So you can’t really compare the two.”
Cowell on the other hand, hasn’t hidden that fact he is annoyed that NBC is putting The Voice up against his X Factor USA.
"I think this is the reason why NBC decided to put The Voice up against us,” he said. “It is a spoiling tactic and it’s very simple—they don’t want people to see this first episode. I think it’s mean-spirited and I hope and I pray that it backfires on them because this is one of the best shows we’ve ever made.
"I am p***ed off about it because I think there is kind of a gentlemen’s agreement, but you have to rely that the viewers will make the right selection. I think three nights in a row is too much. I think there is a lot of interest, rightly so, in our show because of Britney, Demi, the way the show is going to look. We’re going to see what happens. But I’ve learned, don’t make any predictions."
