Britney Spears is already picking favorites on “X Factor.”

The pop star was won over by aspiring country singer Tate Stevens, who performed “Anything Goes.”

Spears told him, “You’re my favorite so far. You’re just amazing and I love you… Holy cow, yes!”

Louis Walsh, filling in for a sick Simon Cowell, was similarly impressed, saying, “You’ve got an amazing, authentic, effortless country voice. We found ourselves a country star today.”

Demi Lovato, who said she was blown away by Stevens’ voice, added, “I’m going to be listening to your record one day over and over.”

L.A. Reid just had one bone to pick with the performer.

“I’m only mad at you for waiting so long to do what you’re doing,” he told Stevens. “You are the best thing we’ve seen in this town.”
