After so many rumors, we can say this: finally, it’s official! Britney Spears and Demi Lovato join X Factor in the panel of judges. It looks like Simon Cowell got what he wanted!
Some have said it was the worst kept secret in the history of X Factor, still I bet you the producers have had several reasons for that. On Monday, Fox had the well sought presentation, and both Britney Spears and Demi Lovato showed up for it. The network hopes that with Britney and Demi on the show, X Factor will get back the quarter of audience lost last year and hopefully even more.
The show is by far more important for the 30-year-old Britney Spears as she has the opportunity to show everybody she’s back. During the presentation, Britney Spears went for wow effect and she got it. She wore two sexy dresses that showed off most of her body curves. The once pop princess said: “I am so excited about this whole experience. It’s going to be so much fun and so different from anything I’ve ever done. I’m ready to find the true star”.
First wearing white mini-dress that displayed her lines, Britney changed into a purple Alexander Wang mini dresses that she rocked out. In a statement, the singer said: “I couldn’t be more excited to join X Factor judging panel. 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!”
Meanwhile, Demi Lovato, Britney’s new colleague on X Factor, chose a bold trendy outfit by Falguni & Shane Peacock. She said of her chance to move from Disney princess to X Factor judge: “I am totally stoked to be here. I’m excited to represent my generation”.
With these two on board, more people will turn an eye to X Factor. As the producers hope, Britney and Demi will bring back the audience and some on top of it. It’s very likely that the strategy will actually be successful.
Andy Greene, associate editor at Rolling Stone, explains: “If you were a young person between ’98 and ’07, you find Britney fascinating. There’s just no way around it…between her craziness and absence”.
