Britney Spears threw FOX’s The X Factor production team into complete chaos earlier this week with a series of last minute changes for her four acts.

She spent the week mentoring her teen acts Carly Rose Sonenclar, Arin Ray, Beatrice Miller and Diamond White at the Hollywood house where they are living, and at the studio rehearsing ahead of their first live performances on Wednesday night.

“Britney’s been constantly changing the performances for some of her acts on rehearsal days. She thought that one of the girls in particular was holding back too much and she wants them all to really enjoy themselves on stage and to surprise people,” a source told Celebuzz.

“Britney has been really focused on the big performance ideas in particular and on some she wanted to create some of the creative things she’d done in her own stage performances,” the source added.

Starting Wednesday, the singing competition series will kick off its live shows, along with new hosts Mario Lopez and Khloe Kardashian.

According to our source close to production, Spears was spotted at CBS on Monday night, hard at work with her contestants and making sure everyone behind-the-scenes was following through with her plans.

“It seems like she’s really enjoyed getting back to what Britney is best at, and that is getting creative,” the source said.

The first live X Factor will air Wednesday at 8 PM on FOX. The top finalists will be revealed on Thursday at 8 PM.
