I can’t believe that the X-factor is almost here! The past few months, there were so many rumors as to who would replace Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger. We heard Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, and Fergie were all in the running, but Simon Cowell has kept mum on the issue (he just loves messing with the media!).
This month, X-factor and Simon Cowell reported that the ultimate pop diva, Britney Spears, is officially a judge and so is teen pop star Demi Lovato! Brit Brit reportedly signed a $15 million deal (yes, really!) and I totally support Simon’s picks!
Let’s be honest – Britney is a world famous pop icon who will bring in viewers and high ratings, while teen star, Demi Lavoto, will attract a younger group of viewers to the show. Simon’s strategy for publicizing this show was very smart, too. All of the mystery surrounding the status of the judges made the X-factor a seemingly permanent hot topic of conversation.
The new buzz is that Britney has been very nervous and anxious about the show. Us Weekly reported that Britney is very fragile and very emotional, having non-stop crying bouts on and off throughout the day. TMZ even surfaced photos of her biting her nails until they bleed. It’s easy to understand why she is nervous. It’s her chance to show the world what she can do by helping inspiring musicians take their talent and craft to the next level. Although it seems easy watching from the couch in your living room, it can be a grueling, stressful task. Hopefully she’ll do as well judging as she does performing!
This show is going to be great exposure for Demi Lovato, too. This could really help her career take off even more. She will gain more fans quicker than ever because she really is an American sweetheart. Plus, the publicity for any new music she releases during the show will be invaluable for her career. She has dealt with a lot this past year, battling depression and other illnesses., but taking on this gig shows she can defeat anything. Hopefully, she will bring a bright side to the judge’s table.
I am looking forward to seeing all of the judges do a great job! What’s not to love about the new season: a new panel, new talent….and the same old Simon!?
Tell us, do you think Britney and Demi will be great judges? Will you be tuning in? Leave your comments below!
