She’s not that innocent!

Britney Spears made her judging debut Thursday night on FOX’s hit singing competition The X Factor.

Despite speaking in a childlike, sweet voice to some of the contestants, the Oops, I Did It Again singer did not hold back.

She proved her fearless critiquing in a face-to-face reunion with 32-year-old Don Philip. The two had recorded a duet together more than a decade ago, and Spears seemed stunned to see her old collaborating partner again.

After an emotional exchange with Spears, Philip belted out a version of Beyonce’s Halo.

Unfortunately, Spears (and the rest of the judges) found his performance less-than-heavenly.
