Demi Lovato Spears X Factor: Lovato, Spears & ‘X Factor’ Gig
Demi Lovato Spears X Factor: Lovato, Spears & ‘X Factor’ Gig, When you hire a pop icon for your singing competition show, everybody has something to say about it.
Finally, after what seems like years of speculation, Britney Spears, along with Disney starlet Demi Lovato, have officially joined the new season of The X Factor to sit beside Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid at the judges table. So when talent walked the red carpet at the upfront presentations in New York City, we just had to get their opinion on the judging choices.
Some were excited, while others, like American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance boss Nigel Lythoge, were less than confident about the two…
“I hadn’t ever considered them. I always like mentors who have a lot more experience,” Lythgoe told our own Kristin Dos Santos. “Having said that, these two ladies have had so much personal experience; it’ll be interesting. I like someone who’s been there and knows the whole gamut of what these kids are going through and help them through.”
While chatting with the stars of NBC, we got a much more enthusiastic response from the likes of Joel McHale, Donald Trump and more.
“I do know Britney, she’s performed for me, Trump humble bragged to us. “And Simon’s a total winner. I think she’s going to do great.”
“I think it’s good because she’ll finally be able to make some money,” Community star and E! friend Joel McHale remarked dryly. But that comment could be because he was miffed about something. “[Simon Cowell] didn’t approach me to be a judge this year. I cant believe it! I know what the X factor is.” (E! Online)
