Narrowly escaping a total wipe out, Britney Spears nearly took a tumble as she arrived to the first day of "X Factor" auditions in Kansas City, Missouri this afternoon (June 8).
Clad in a white knit top and matching peep toe pumps, the "Toxic" songstress later gathered her balance - just in time for the shutterbugs to snap a few pics.
Prior to her arrival Miss Spears amped up the excited for the stop, tweeting, "Hope that Kansas City is ready for @TheXFactorUSA to roll into town tomorrow....let's go! @simoncowell @ddlovato @la_reid #KCFactor."
After learning co-judge Simon Cowell had fallen ill and wouldn't be able to make this round of auditions, Brit later joked, "I can't believe I'm actually saying this...but I miss @SimonCowell. Hope you feel better soon!"
