Britney Spears just showed up in Kansas City, Missouri for her second round of "X Factor" judging ... and so far, not a SINGLE meltdown -- though there was a little stumble.
Brit stumbled in her high heels as she exited her limo, but quickly recovered ... to begin her first judging gig since San Antonio two weeks ago -- when Britney mysteriously walked off set and disappeared for several acts.
We're told Britney's bringing her A-game today -- showing up on time in a sexy white dress, signing autographs for adoring fans.
That's not to say things are going perfectly -- Simon Cowell is a no-show today due to a bad case of bronchitis. UK "X Factor" judge Louis Walsh is filling in.
Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
