What a stupid mistake.every time i've ever seen this girl talk she can't even for a proper sentence and apparently can't even stay sober for 24 hrs not to mention her own career is barely hanging on by a thread

Never watched because of Paula, now I wont watch because of Brit and Dem. As the consumer I think I'm more qualified than nasal Brit and Demise nobody. Its clearly about the ratings over talent.

What does this chick have to offer? She's only been to rehab once. At least Britney's made a good three trips...

I don't care who does this gig, I don't watch it. What I would like to see is the full list of people who were asked to do this job and hung up. Now that would be interesting.

I'm so ****ing proud, she's an AMAZING singer 7 such a great role model to young girls. I bet all of you talking trash about her haven't taken the time to LEARN the facts, haven't listened to her interviews & have NO IDEA THAT her song Skyscraper has REDUCED the number of suicides across the globe. So SIT DOWN, give her a chance before you bash her when all you know is her name, not her real story. I'm so proud Demi, you deserve this so much!

Demi went to TREATMENT because she was BULLIED, which developed into two eating disorders & self harm. She didn't go to treatment because she had a "drug problem". She went because she had two eating disorders, that could have taken her life. Did you know that? No, i'm sure all you heard was "rehab" & just assumed it was because of drugs. So shut up, leave the girl alone. She hasn't done anything except inspire young girls, & trust me she's going to bring A LOT of viewers to the show. There are even people auditioning JUST so they can see Demi. Demi has REAL TALENT, if you haven't heard her then search "demi lovato acapella" and listen there. She has a phenomenial voice, just because she was from Disney doesn't mean she sucks. She is the ONLY talented disney star, and she is going to bring so much to the show. Just wait and see

People, I have nothing against the fact that you don't know who Demi Lovato is, but please don't claim that she's a "no talent" when clearly you don't what you're talking about, if you never heard of her go look her up, she's extremely talented. And if you did hear of her but you think she doesn't have any talent, go get your ears fixed.
And please, stop with the treatment+rehab thing, yes she did have some problems, at a very young age, she started to be a bullimic when she was only 12, she cut herself, tried all kind of drugs...but she's healthy now, no way she's going back to the hell she's been through, and I think we should congratulate her instead of bringing her down. Thanks.

Isn't this what people do at the other end of their career, after all the biggest part of the hoopla is done? Britney i can see. Demi...well, maybe she's at that other end too. Either way, I can't believe people still watch this stuff.

People hate on Demi now, but I bet if they actually went out & heard her live, heard her song, learned her story, & actually realized how hard her life was, then they would shut the **** up & feel terrible. This girl was bullied, she hated herself. She developed two eating disorders, she HATED herself, & she is healthy now. & you are sitting behind a computer screen, talking ****. BITCH PLEASE, we know that if she was in front of you,you would kiss her ass & tell her how much you love her. LEAVE, WITH YOUR IRRELVANT A*SSES

I think she would be better on the show The Biggest Loser- As A Contestant! Demi has really packed on the pounds lately, this show could help her lose those extra pounds

I think it's funny how many ignorant *******s are on here that think they know everything about a celebrity's life just because they read tmz. the amount of ignorance is unreal. please go read up on the FACTS instead of citing gossip sites that have "anonymous sources". no one knows for sure what happens behind closed doors but who are we to go by speculation and not by what they person going through it comes out and says themselves? grow up people.
