Watch: Britney gets nasty in first clip from X Factor USA

"You can't destroy that song, sweetie." Ouch!

Any hopes Britney Spears will be the new Paula Abdul-esque mother figure of The X Factor USA have been dashed in the first promo clip released for the show.

Sitting on the panel with Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato and L.A. Reid, Britney quashes the hopes of starry-eyed contestants with apparent ease.

Even Simon Cowell looks surprised (then again, that could just be the Botox).

Daily Mail has coined the nickname "Bitchy Spears" for the 30-year-old pop star-turned-talent show judge.

The promo comes just a day after Britney stormed off The X Factor set annoyed by a drag queen impersonating her to the 1999 hit 'You Drive Me Crazy'.

Britney is now the highest-paid reality TV show judge with a reported paycheck of $16 million.

Nice work if you can get it. Sweetie.
