So the worst kept secret in Hollywood is out; Britney Spears & Demi Lovato are your new X Factor judges, replacing Nicole Sherzinger and Paula Abdul. Still no word on who is replacing Steve Jones.
Over a month ago we talked about Britney's millions to judge on X Factor, $15 million to be exact, where there were others wanting to join the panel, including most vocally, Chaka Khan. They went and signed Demi Lovato instead, wanting an even younger demographic.
It has been reported that Britney was nervous at the press conference Monday and there are photos of her where she appears to have been biting her nails quite bad. She stumbled in her speech. Those that wanted her to fail and cause a train wreck on live TV are already salivating like birds in the desert over live meat. Pathetic.
As for Demi Lovato, others cannot go one sentence on her without saying "who" or talking about her barely getting paid a million dollars to be on the show. So what? Those that read DrFunkenberry.com on the regular know all about Demi Lovato with her ginormous hit "Skyscraper" last year and the problems she has had with her weight and other issues. People forget, she is not only judging but mentoring. Whose to say she does not get the girls 12-18? Her advice will be spot on as she is not so removed from that age. She will be able to help them in ways the other judges can't.
As for L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell, let's male no mistake about it; these are Simon's girls, not Reids. Ahhh, L.A., did you think we would forget last year when our girl Drew covered Lovato's "Skyscraper" and you called it "an old people song" and got booed by the crowd? Nope, we didn't forget buddy. Chris Rene so far has had more success than Melanie so far so we will give you that. Perhaps you are not as in touch as you thought is all. I remember you telling a friend of the site one time that he was "out of touch" but he has been proving to you ever since that "he is the touch" buddy.
All in all, I am looking forward to X Factor. Not for the train wreck. Britney will have her struggles but will still prove people wrong. For those that do not know who Demi is, we look forward to her judging, her input, and showing those Italian roots when Simon or L.A. try to put her down.
Are you looking forward to X Factor this fall?-DocFB
