It appears that the new look X Factor USA panel are all really beginning to hit it off together. There were a few raised eyebrows when it was revealed that Demi Lovato and Britney Spears had been brought in to replace Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul. However, Demi and Britney appear to be getting on great, which really helps the show to shine.
Lovato told People, “What surprised me the most about Britney is that she's actually really quirky. You kind of expect a legendary pop star [to] sometimes [be], like, a diva or something, but she's really not.” Demi then went on to admit that she and the rest of the judges understand what the show is all about.
She added, “At the end of the day, it's about the contestants. It's not about us as judges. I think other shows maybe forget that the entire purpose of the competition is to find a superstar, not to get publicity for the wrong [reasons].”
Britney Spears recently admitted that she would be looking to return for a second season of The X Factor USA next year. The X Factor USA continues on Wednesday and Thursday evenings at 8/7c on Fox.
