Britney Spears and Demi Lovato step out as X-Factor judges

The X Factor is bracing itself for a pop diva takeover. Hollywood’s worst kept secret was confirmed Monday when Britney Spears and Demi Lovato officially stepped out as judges on The X Factor. The announcement was made at the FOX network presentation in New York City where producer and judge, Simon Cowell, proclaimed his excitement over the revamped new season. “This has taken a year, and I am thrilled to be able to confirm the return of L.A. Reid and the addition of Demi Lovato and the superstar Britney Spears.” Spears and Lovato each made statements, reinforcing their enthusiasm over being involved with the series. “It’s just an honor to be standing next to you,” Lovato said of her X-Factor co-stars. “I’m excited to represent my generation and I’m ready to find the winner.” Both pop starlets have a lot in common. Spears and Lovato got their start working for Disney and have suffered the downside of fame — their personal demons making numerous tabloid headlines. It’s this buzz that will likely create the interest in the singing competition that former judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger failed to do. ~Kyle Sharp
