    Demi as a judge is so random..

  • Marzena

    With all of the plastic surgeries and botox going on in Hollywood Britney looks very natural to me like she hasn’t gotten anything done. She has been through alot and it looks like she’s doing great now. She looks happy, healthy and very pretty, GO BRITNEY! :)

  • o,o

    Go Brit, you look great!

  • Guy

    I will definitely watch it with Demi, been a fan of hers for YEARS and have had the biggest crush on her as well. I’m glad to see her on the show and I hope this is a positive thing for her. I know that people will have their opinions but at least Demi isn’t a bubblegum pop singer, this girl has some deep stuff that if she just broke away form those who want to stifle her, I think that she would do great. Good luck Demi!!!

  • hap

    Maybe I’ll tune in for Britney, but didn’t Demi just get out of rehab a few months ago? Can she really handle being on TV twice a week and getting judged for her judgements by critics?
    Obviously Simon’s desperate in expanding his fanbase, catering to the preteen/teen demographic with Demi.

  • MARC

  • Sarah

  • Sarah

  • Brayan

  • susan

    i hope this is what Britney wants to do. since her father, Jamie Spears, and the man she’s going to marry are co-conservators Britney cannot do this without their permission.

  • Dooley

    Will they let the performers Per-Record there Vocals and then Lip Sync to them Live???Because that is the only way Britney is qualify to Judge…Christina C-List for being a Judge so what does that make Britney??

  • Mika

    i like demi’s dress

  • Gay


  • Pippa Martin-St. Onge

    Should be interesting as both Britney and Demi are heavily medicated on psychotropic drugs.

  • Gay

  • William

    @ Flag This Are U Sick ?? U Need Help Honey !!! lloooolll


  • J

    Who is Demi wearing? I don’t think either of these two can truly sing, but they will pull in ratings. Really, I just want to know who makes Demi’s dress….

  • lourdes

    Not to sound like a hater but what does Britney know about singing?

  • jajaj

    Britney need to be going the xtina woredrode route ( Tan, tight dresses) I like Demi dress and shoes. They have no chemistry , watch the tape.

  • Kat

    I was thinking of tuning in to this after I heard that Britney Spears had been signed on as a judge, but I changed my mind when they cast Demi Lovato. In a few months, we’ll all have to listen to her tale of woe when she describes how the stress of this experience drove her to new depths of suicidal self-loathing. Yawn.

  • http://website,computer Dave From Canada

    Both Britney and Demi are bipolar. Simon did want something different for his show…….

  • Nick

    She got out of a treatment facility 2 years ago.

  • Annie

    I can’t wait to see Brit on this show! She looks so pretty and happy here!

  • KissThis

    I don’t think Demi is very good choice, but Brit definitely is. Girl has seen it all, been everywhere, to hell and back. She KNOWS what’s up and what’s good.

  • Kelly

    OMG…can’t wait for September….its gonna be the greatest season ever….

    Britney is AMAZING….and she’s an exemple and she looks so damn pretty…so haters as they say: if you can say smth nice, don’t say nothing at all…..because you’re all jealous….and Demi is pretty good too…love them both <3

  • Shelby

    good for her! this will skyrocket her career and specially as an adult. i don’t care what anyone else says about it but, demi is extremely talented and knows a lot about music. people just right her off and judge her talent because of Disney. i know she’s still very young to judge, though.. but she knows talent, so.. she’s not that successful because of her bad team/management, record label and bad promo but this will give it to her. congrats to her!

  • bebe

    Britney looks lovely! I think this is a great move on Britney’s part, ever since her “breakdown”, she comes across as “living on a different planet”…I’m a fan of her music and her as a person, and I hope she gets to show everyone the fun/down to earth girl she is.
    At this point Britney has secured her spot as a legend/and while some may argue she can’t sing, her songs are great and she is overall a great entertainer.

  • ab

    i really think this is a bad idea for britney spears.. you cant really recover from that kind of a break down.. the people who are pushing her to do this are her ‘handlers’ because they dont want to lose any money! its disgusting.. she should just take her babies and move away from the stupid celebrity seen.

  • britbrit

    i think it will be interesting to see britney on the x factor… she looks good considering everything she’s been through, but she could change that hair colour… light brown would make her look more natural…

  • Demi

    Britney looks…. huge?

  • sostill

    @Ilona: you need to really find something else to do. Sad.

  • Whatever.

    I have a feeling Demi will try and be the tough judge and Britney will be like Paula. I just hope that BbrittBritt isnt too scripted or else it will be painful to watch

  • as

    Money talks

  • Lisa

    Demi never had a hit record, just look at Billboard TOP FORTY. and she going to judge other people what a JOKE. HEY Simon the Voice will SMASH XFactor in September

  • Ego

    @hap: Demi has been out for over a year now. You fail at the Internet.

  • Ego

    @Pippa Martin-St. Onge: Actually I believe you are confusing those two with your mom. Who is also a whore, tell her I said hi :)

  • Ego

    @Lisa: Actually she did have a hit record. Two of them for that matter. Unbroken and here we go again both were on the top ten at their debuting releases. So yeah not only are you a simpleton but you’re also a fool.

    Ps the x factor killed the voice last year so yeah. You suck at common sense idiot.

  • 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.




  • TRP

    Britney’s crazy ass can’t even take a cast picture. LOL, and Demi should not be a judge to young and to new in the industry. What real singer wants advice from a Disney star 19 year old from Camp Rock…really? Her being hired is a stunt to get younger people to watch X-Factor.

  • TRP

    @Ego: A top 10 album is not a hit record in this day and age.

  • Yo sista

    I love seeing others do well, so i’m thrilled Demi has pulled herself together. And as for Britney, i’m mostly proud of the person that she is, she’s been through a LOT and look at her, she’s back! Good girl and a good example for young girls & boys, you can fall REALLY hard and you can still make it back! NEVER give up, never ever! She looks amazing, you go GURL!

  • Dave Franco

    Anyone think this is a good idea? britney looks lost and Demi, well, her being judge would be awkward. They need someone controversial and opinionated — these two look boring.

  • JHON

    im happy for britney
    my best wishes for her
    lov u b

  • lukeon

    who designed this white dress? I need to know it :D
