Demi Lovato is coaching the girls on "The X Factor" this season. The contestants for "X Factor" 2013 have already been chosen and the top 16 spoilers were released on Sept. 19, 2013. Demi has chosen Danie Geimer, Ellona Santiago, Khaya Cohen and Jacksonville's own Rion Thompson as her favorites to win "The X Factor" in 2013.
The next step is for Demi to coach her four girls on singing, style and stage presence. If the winner of "The X Factor" is one of Demi's girls she will earn bragging rights. Meet the female contestants that will be working with Demi Lovato this season.
