Looks like spending time with Simon Cowell is brushing off on Britney Spears!

FOX just released a brand new promo for the upcoming season of "The X Factor" -- and Britney is surprisingly brutal!

In the clip, the pop star can be seen putting down contestants during the audition rounds, crushing their dreams with quips like "You can't destroy that song, sweetie," "Predictable" and "You definitely don't have The X Factor."

Does this new clip give you more faith in Britney being on the show? Sound off in the poll below.
