Demi Lovato

7-Figure Deal at 'X Factor'

... But Just Barely

EXCLUSIVE

Demi Lovato
is exactly 1/15th the celebrity Britney Spears is ... at least in the salary department.

Sources tell TMZ, the 19-year-old singer's raking in just north of a million to join the gang on "X Factor" -- still damn impressive, but face it ... she's no Britney.

Simon Cowell raved about Demi, praising her accomplishments at such a young age ... insisting she will connect with younger viewers.

As we reported, Britney signed a record $15 million deal to work as a judge on the show -- so Demi's getting table scraps ... but in the TV biz, scraps can make you a millionaire.

And just to show how desperately Demi wanted to appease her new "X Factor" overlords -- we're told the former Disney star even structured her upcoming tour around the "X Factor" tapings.

Simon Cowell will be doing Pepsi commercials soon. X Factor is about as popular as a VHS VCR....

These stupid talent shows have become more about who the judges are more than anything else. By the way, how in the hell is Britney Spears able to judge anyone on talent, having none herself? Is she going to tell the contestants, "with some computer generated over-dubbing, you might actually be able to get on pop radio". And who is Demi Lovato? Howard Stern? Really?

Simon knows how to make money but you would never know it by the way he's running that show.

They need to change the name of the show to "The Autotune Factor". Both these new judges have extensive experience in this area.

Britney is a good choice, but why would they pick Demi? She has hardly done anything, almost a nobody. Does Simon just like to surround himself with young girls or what? There are so many better choices.

Lovato structured her tour dates around the "X Factor" tapings? Don't you mean around her rehab stays?
