It was reported on May 14, 2012, that pop stars Britney Spears and Demi Lovato have been confirmed as the judges of X Factor.
Britney tweeted a picture of herself and Demi alongside Simon Cowell and LA Reid ahead of the announcement.
The American version of Simon Cowell’s show will air its second season soon, and the two singers will complete the judging quartet, alongside Cowell himself and L.A. Reid.
During the presentation of the show in New York, Britney Spears said, “I'm a huge fan of the show and now I get to be a part of the action. Simon and L.A. better watch out!"
Demi Lovato, by her part, joins the show after leaving behind her hospitalization and launching her fourth album.
She displayed great enthusiasm, saying "I'm totally stoked to be here ... I'm excited to represent my generation and find the winner!".
The jugde choices have been received with surprise by many, who argue that Spears, who is known for lip-syncing during her live performances, might not be the most fit person to judge other people's singing.
Regarding Lovato, at only 19 she is deemed as maybe too young for the task. Nevertheless, these two will probably make for an interesting season.
