Britney Spears may be a bit of a disasterpiece these past few years, but I don't think anybody can question that she was immensely successful as a pop star and basically a household name. She has gone through a ton in the past few years, much of it her fault.

So for me to see Demi Lovato, a nobody whoe aside from her stint in rehab and some drug issues really only had a guest spot on Grey Anatomy. She may have had a tiny bit of success, but she is about as qualified as the *****cat doll to actually be a judge and mentor to any musician. Such a joke.

I hope Demi and Britney become good friends. They both seem like nice girls who got sucked into bad life choices.

Maybe they can support each other and be good girl friends sho lift each other up instead of tearing each other down, like most girls do to their own detriment.

LET ME EXPLAIN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BRITNEY SPEARS AND MS. LOVATO......................
Britney's experience is based on singing songs written by other people.......she is not well grounded mentally due to clinically psychological reasons. Those problems can be handled, but not cured.
Demi Lovato's experienced is based on singing songs other people wrote..................Demi is not all there due to a minor a drug problem which can be/and is easily treated, depending on her commitment to staying sober and wanting to get better...............Lovato is a better choice. More grounded mentally. And yes, I CAN'T STAND EITHER ONE. I am just giving you an objectionable point of view.

Ok. Why is she qualified to be a judge? What did she do except bad life choices and rehab? If it goes this way, Octomom should be eligible to be a judge.
