Demi has more talent than any of you hating ass bitches will ever have. She's sold out tours, saved lives, been on shows OUTSIDE of disney channel. Get a life and stop being so worried about Demi's, you guys are OBVIOUSLY pressed because your idol didn't have enough talent to make it into the big biz, lol bye.

Two real winners coming to the X-Factor. Haven't watched it yet but might just to see what she looks like. Even with all the screwed up stuff she's done, I wouldn't kick her out of bed for eating crackers...

Oh my God. Nail in the coffin for this show. Obviously Simon is trying to attract a young demographic to watch this show, but what about the contestants? Most of them will be older than Demi yet they're supposed to look to her for 'expert' advice? Please.

What makes her qualified to judge anyone? At least Britney who is a hot mess has been in the business for a while

I'm so happy that Demi got this spot because she has shown that she's talented and yeah she's 19 so there are a lot of singers that are older than her and can't hit notes like her . Congratulations Demi :)

This chick better watch out, if she goes hard at Britney, Britney will pull out her umbrella and wack her like she did those paparazzi a few years ago.

Lovato was partying all night snorting peruvian flake cocaine in peru and when the back up dancer told on her to the mc and tour manager she punched the girl in the face. I listened to lovato sing acapella and she can not hit most of her notes it is funny that these lovato fans on here are saying that she is better than our "Favs" Seriously what are "Favs" adults dont have FAVS we listen to people with talent demi lovato is manufactured by the the kid corporations and has none of her own opinions her song did not stop people from committing suicide the people that say they did not commit suicide because of her song are just trying to get mentioned and are the people who are so easy to cater to with manufactured fake disney singers because they are little kids with out real taste . I used to think people were dumb when they said to me as a kid that talented music takes maturity to recognize but now i do like the music that i thought sucked and was for adults in the 80s it is also is the same for food when i was a kid i liked basic flavors and was grossed out by anything exotic now i love all kinds if food i would never eat as a child. You young lovato fans will grow up someday

Damn. Why do you low lifes chose to talk complete junk. Why do you judge her when she isn't the only one. She not the only star to cut, having an eating disorder, or emotional issues. You guys need to get a life. Why can't you see the positive things about her. She told people about her problems instead of pretending like they never existed, she got help, she's better, she's a good role model, she's a good person and role model. Things like that are the reasons why I love her. Yeah, she was pushed by bullies to make mistakes, but look at her now. She is Staying Strong. The fact that your saying mean things about her, doesn't make you better. It makes you a disgrace.
