At just 19 year old, it will be interesting to see how she does judging other talent. I wish her the best!

I hope this is true! she is the perfect choice! I feel she would do a GREAT job! I also don't understand where all this negativity about her is from? ya she had an eating disorder and self harmed, but she got help for it, and she is a role model for kids,teens, and adults. She never encouraged drugs or eating disorder or self harm so I don't understand how some people can say she is encouraging it?

Oh please..none of you ultimately know their situations, Demi and Britney are both professionals and have had a success from their early teens. Both have owned up to their flaws and have dealt with personal problems. They need young perspective from the judging panel and these have had to deal with a lot more than most so who better to mentor and give advice on the ups and downs of making a career out of the music industry.
It's nothing new for musicians and people in the public eye to have problems, heck most people do except it's not plastered all over the world.
I have no idea if they are going to be any good on the show but I say at least give them a chance.

I'd like to congratulate her except I don't know who she is or why she's famous. I think I've heard the name Lovato before....oh wait, I'm thinking of Loofa. Nevermind.

Perfect - a couple of 20 somethings that sing what others write/play/produce are going to judge others 'talent.'

Who watches this crap?

nobody cared about this dumb bitch until she punched out her backup dancer for squealing on her cocaine use then blamed it on an eating disorder and checked into a hotel and pretended to be in rehab

Almost all pro-Demi posts are from the same person who just registered bunch of accounts. Demi must be posting herself. Would not that be fun.
