Britney, you’ve had a number of fashion missteps over the years. There was that awful appearance at the AMAs in ’01 when you turned up in a denim dress (I blame JT for that one), that time you performed at the MTV Video Music Awards wearing a sequined bra and panties, and don’t even get me started on the whole shaving your head incident. So when you decided to re-invent yourself as an X Factor judge, I’ll admit I had my doubts. After all, your old rival Christina Aguilera has worn a bevy of nightmarish outfits on The Voice. Would you fall prey to the same fate?

It’s not just a fashion comeback, it’s a fashion triumph! In honor of tonight’s X Factor finale, here’s a look back at some of your best outfits this season. SEE MORE PHOTOS
