Britney Spears has never looked better!

The 30-year-old bared her toned midriff in a silver Sheri Bodell halter top and liquid jeggings during The X Factor's Nov. 8 episode. "It's just a girl thing. We just do what we do," the judge told Us Weekly of her style on the show. "Clothes are amazing."

Fortunately for Spears, all four of her team members — Arin Ray, 17, Beatrice Miller, 13, Carly Rose Sonenclar, 13, and Diamond White, 13 — made it through to the next round after L.A. Reid's Jason Brock was sent home.

"I was really surprised," Spears said of Brock's exit. (Spears and Reid voted to keep Brock in favor of Demi Lovato's CeCe Frey. With the judges divided, viewer votes sent the San Francisco-based singer packing.)

"I just thought that there is a charismatic bond on stage with Jason that I have. For some reason there's je ne sais quoi with him that I can't explain," Spears told Us. "It's just one of those things where there is someone you prefer. So that is why I like him."

Though White was eliminated in the Nov. 2 episode, she was given a chance to redeem herself when the judges brought her back five days later. Rankings revealed that the Detroit native earned the fourth highest number of votes behind Tate Stevens, Sonenclar and Vino Alan. "I'm actually not surprised. I'm excited," Spears said of her team member. "There is just an angelic appeal about her. . . When I had to vote her off the show, it was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do, so I am glad we brought her back."

The X Factor airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST on FOX.
