James Corden has criticised Britney Spears for giving a "half-a***d" performance on The X Factor.

The singer mimed her new single 'Womanizer' on the ITV1 talent show's results episode last night. It was her first UK television performance in over four years.

Speaking on The Xtra Factor, Corden, who is best known for his role in Gavin & Stacey, claimed that Spears had been upstaged by the competition's finalists.

"They're all better than Britney Spears. I'm not lying," he told show host Holly Willoughby. "The song sounded great but I've already got the CD, so I don't really need to see someone come out and mime it.

"Here's a group of people not trained, not sold five million albums, not all that stuff, coming out singing live every week and being judged really harshly. Then out comes Britney Spears, mimes a sort of half-a***d performance of the thing and then leaves to go and play at Heaven tonight at midnight. I was just watching it going: 'You're still a bit mental'."

The results show also saw Spanish singer Ruth Lorenzo being eliminated after eight weeks in the competition.
