A new, minute-long ‘X Factor‘ promo has landed, featuring new judge Britney Spears gushing about a contestant. If you pay attention, you’ll notice that it’s set to ‘Don’t Fail Me Now,’ the new single from Season 1 winner Melanie Amaro. The song factors prominently in the spot, paired with the uplifting, dream-come-true footage of the judges complimenting and pushing through the top tier of talent during the audition phases.

New judge Spears, clearly a focal point of the second season of the show, is seen gushing about one contestant, calling out their passion and commenting about how fun he or she is to watch. Imagine being that contestant and hearing those words from a legend like Brit Brit? That’s a dream come true. It’s also the stuff that a show like ‘X Factor’ is made of. The new season doesn’t even launch for another couple weeks and we can already tell that Brit provided the show the boost it so desperately needed.

Spears’ fellow new judge Demi Lovato is shown wiping away tears more than a few times, and heaping praise on a contestant, as well.

By the way, did the powers that be at ‘X’ settle on a host yet?

In the meantime, watch another recent ‘X Factor’ promo here.
