  • Kersley

    Yes! I love Demi

  • Asha

    This is the worse casting ever. I can’t even imagine the conversations between Britney, Demi, L.A., and Simon. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

  • Chris

    I’m actually going to watch the show now Demi and Britney is an excellent combination since Britney is a performance-based artist and Demi focuses more on the raw ability to sing they can both bring something different to the table.

    Simon Defiantly knows what he’s doing.

  • alice

    wow!!! I cannot wait! I hope Brit will be able to remind the public of her sweet and funny personality

  • cham

    I’m excited to see Demi on the show!! People will be surprised by her, she’s really an awesome girl!!

  • Sherry

    Can’t wait to watch Demi and Britney in action I will defiantly be watching!

  • jo

    Britney lip-synchs! How the h3ll is she going to judge others on their live singing?

  • alicia

    @jo: gosh, this show is not just about vocal ability. we all have “The Voice” for that… doesn’t the name of the show tell you something? It’s about the X Factor, and Brit certainly has it!!

  • Karen

    gonna watch it only for B

  • Alia san

    ok i love Demi but come on judg isn’t a good idea
    they should chose someone older than her and have more experience

  • Johnny

    I can’t wait to see the legendary Britney Spears! Love her or hate her, she definitely sparks public interest!

  • Mark

    Britney Spears is the new judge on X-Factor? Wow. That’s pretty cool. Maybe I’ll actually watch this season! Always have had a soft side for Brit.

  • LaQuisha

    OMG!!!! Get it girl! Y’all be lyin if you said you don’t like Britney! She’s miss American Dream since she was 17! :))

  • Raven

    I’m glad to see Britney doing well, she’s easily one of the most likeable stars out there.

  • Skye

    Demi is back!! i cant wait to see her and of course Britney!

  • Warren

    Hot Demi!

  • Sandra

    Paula Abdul did it pretty successfully. She doesn’t have half the career Britney has, and she did it for over 10 years! By the way, Britney started off doing talent shows. She was on Star Search. She can sing live, and did at her last concert. It is just hard for her to dance and sing at the same time, so she lip-syncs.

  • Bryan

    I’ve been waiting so long for her to have this kind of platform again! I can’t wait for America to see the real Britney again. It’s been so many years. If people only knew her how her real fans do, they would love her like we do. She is a sweet, simple, and kindhearted girl. I’m so excited to see her all glammed up and confident again!

  • Johnny

    Look! We all know Britney is not the best singer in the world, but she knows what it takes to make it. She is a superstar, known all over the world. Give her a chance before you judge her.

  • Taylor

    Pffft. What qualifies Demi Lovato to be an X-Factor judge? Britney has seen a lot of success but half the time it seems she is just a puppet.

  • Amber

    Awesome! Demi Lovato has an amazing voice and is a great performer. She deserves it!

  • P

    I’m songonna watch just for Brit, love itmor hat britney will definitely makes the rating high

  • Natasha Stasyi

    WHAT?? WHO??! D.Lovato you’re kidding me????!!!! They may as well appoint S.Gomez.ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Lol

  • Alyssa


    They all lipsynch!! If you really think Britney is the only star to do that, then you must be really dumb.

  • ann

    Demi’s boobs are the size of chiclets, why does she show them off like in that picture? It’s THE most unflattering silhouette possible for her. She looks flat-chested with huge arms and shoulders.

  • eyeroll

    oh right, because a 19 year old cokehead knows all about music and what it takes to make intelligent remarks as a judge. LAME

  • J. Ry

    This is strange. I thought when Demi had her freak out and didn’t come back to Sonny With A Chance she cited that being in front of the camera made her extremely uncomfortable and that that anxiety sparked some of her issues.

  • the_boyfriend

    the only reason i will never miss an episode.
    can not wait to see the Queen.

  • rogger

    Brit never!

    Demi ALWAYS!

  • jilly

    Simon must have lost his mind. None of these girls are capable to judge and mentor people. Paula was great, I can’t believe he replaced them with two airheads!!!

  • Emma

    Demi never had a HIT record, look at Billboard chart, she was never in the top forty. she will judge others what a JOKE. HEY Simon The Voice will SMASH X Factor in September.

  • Yo sista

    I’m actually really excited!

  • Ross

    I can somewhat understand Britney Spears on The X-Factor because Simon Cowell is trying increase ratings but Demi Lovato????!!!

    They couldn’t find a more accomplished artist? Demi is only been in the business for a few years.

  • Christina Aguilera N1 Best


  • charles

    @jo: mm simon is singer L.A is singer Paula abdul was the perfect singer, maybe his 15 years on the industry can work

  • Rose

    Demi DOES NOT lip synch. Go watch a few live videos of her.

  • Rose

    What does that have to do with ANYTHING?

  • efron

    To everyone out there saying Britney doesn’t belongs in this show because she she lip syncs, well this is not a singing competition, it’s about having an X factor which Britney obviously has since she has been on the business for +10 years.

  • Nick

    I don’t think that people realize that just because you don’t have mainstream success doesn’t mean you’re not popular or talented because Demi is honestly in my opinion amazing and I’m positive she will bring in a younger crowd.

  • Jay

    OMG congrats here’s my reaction to the judge news…..I’m so proud of you…
