  • the truth

    Happy for Demi, she is talented. But. I’m still sceptical about her ability to judge other people. Yaay, Britney. <3

  • GodneyStand

    OMFG Britney is gonna be AMAZING on the X FACTOR! #TheVoice is gonna flop like CRAZY LMAO!!! STupid idiots trying to compete with such star power as BRITNEY SPEARS!!!!!!!!!

  • Yaya

    I hope Britney can prove the haters wrong. I wouldn’t consider myself a Brit fan, but I love a good comeback story. Go Britney!!!!

    How hot is she?! DAMN…

  • BloodbuzzOhio

    That’s a whole lotta talent-free in one picture.

  • Lola

    I’m sure it will make a lot of people tune in.

  • Delphic

    Do people seriously think Britney has any talent? She is a product of a corporate music studio. She is a robot who does what everyone tells her to do, sings (or lip syncs) songs that are written for her. There is nothing that distinguishes her from the rest of talentless Hollywood! In fact, she was the trailblazer for such talentless morons! Now people, stop worshiping people like her and start worshiping people who really do something different!

  • Sayer

    Simon knows what he’s doing. He signed a trainwreck in Hagney.
    I can see it now–Awesome will be her only word.

  • Sam

    I love Britney but I have a feeling her role will just be to sit and look pretty like J.Lo…

  • kel

    Will definitely be watching!


    Britney is so nice in this pic

  • Barie

    I wonder if they’ll introduce a 15-second delay to accomodate for Spear’s potential meltdown.The deal includes listing her owner/fiance as a producer so he can EDIT her words using the 15-second delay.

  • trueenough

    Zillions of dollars on drug addicted losers. I think everyone should move to Hollywood and share in the wealth. Yikes, NO ONE is worth 15 million dollars.

  • Emma

    Demi never had a hit record, just look at Billboard Top 100. what give the right to judge other people. The Voice will SMASH X Factor in September

  • Emma

    what give Demi the right to judge other people

  • Blair

    The X Factor may be flashy but The Voice is where true TALENT lies and that will be clear come September!!

  • Lisa

    Demi music SUCKS

  • sayuri

    Britney QUEEN! ,)

  • jsm

    @Lisa: clearly you haven’t listened to it. Granted, the lyrics may not be amazing but her voice is well beyond her years – better than a lot of pop stars that have been in the game twice as long as she has.

    I feel like they’re not going to offer much. I really can’t see either being critical or actually offering any advice I can see them more like jennifer lopez, nicole scherzinger and paula abdul – saying “oh yeah you were great” and “nice job” to every single person. Just my opinon…

  • jmw

    I understand Britney being selected…she may not sing live and her records are heavily produced but there is a reason she has been around for almost 14 years and still had very successful songs last year. And after all she went through and made a huge career comeback I think she could definitely help assist the contestants especially with the performance aspect and the overall “celebrity” aspect that goes along with having a successful career. She also does have a very nice voice when it isn’t overly produced. As for Demi, I’m not really sure why they chose her…I think a different choice might have been better.

  • Yo sista

    I’m shocked Britney looks STUNNING from head to toe!

  • Dooley

    Britney judging a singing contest…LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!You know she will have the same Allergic Reaction to a Live Mike that Paula had…Also Funny how Britney fans though Christina being a Judge was a C-List thing to do but a Great Career move for Britney.

  • Ross

    Will X-Factor get higher ratings than The Voice in the fall? Yes it will….BUT….The Voice will always be the more credible of the two.

  • Tray

    Both fanbases make me laugh. Do any of you realize how stupid you look in taking sides? Why??? Is either of these two really any better than the other???

    A lot of you people are idiots. In the fall, The Voice will be on Mondays and Tuesdays while The X-Factor will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays.


    Britney Spears cannot sing to save her life and is a trainwreck waiting to happen while Christina can really sing but that doesn’t take away the fact that she is a stuck up b**ch.

    If you like both of these “artists” then watch both of these crappy shows…otherwise grow a brain and realize that both Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera are NOT at the top of their game anymore.
