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!

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

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

Will definitely be watching!

Britney is so nice in this pic

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.

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.

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

what give Demi the right to judge other people

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

Demi music SUCKS

Britney QUEEN! ,)

@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…

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.

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

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.
