It certainly seems that way!

Britney Spears is currently in Austin, Texas for the first round of auditions for The X Factor, and the pop princess reportedly walked off the set after "stripper contestant butchered her song [Hold It Against Me]," according to a witness in the crowd, who posted the above shot of Brit's empty seat at the judging table. E! Online's Marc Malkin was also at the taping, and he tweeted a little over an hour ago, "where is britney spears? she's been gone for four contestants." Yikes!

A source connected with the show tells TMZ that Britney wasn't upset about the performance, but rather, she "needed a break." Brit seemed to be in good spirits when she arrived on the set with fellow judges Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid, so it's unclear why she took such a lengthy break. Think this was planned? Or is Britney having a breakdown already!?
