On Wednesday’s episode of “The X Factor,” Britney Spears may have looked calm and collected when she sang “Happy Birthday” to co-judge L.A. Reid but she completely lost her cool the very next day… when lightning struck!

The new “The X Factor” judge couldn’t help but squeal—in the middle of an audition in Greensboro, North Carolina—when thunder sounds reverberated throughout the entire theater.

Her female co-judge, Demi Lovato, ended up laughing and asking the pop star:

“Are you okay?”

A shaky Britney responded:

“Oh my god! That [expletive] is scary as [expletive]!”

She later told Demi:

“I spit all over you, I’m sorry. We need to get outta here.”
