Demi Lovato

7-Figure Deal at 'X Factor'

... But Just Barely

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.

So Britney & Demi can judge on who will be the next overrated person who gets 15 mins and then can breakdown like them?

You guy are just plain stupid. go search her live performances and shut up, Demi has a powerful and awesome voice. She doesn't need autotune at all she can hit every high note perfectly and sometimes she takes it further. Please do your self a favor and educate your self first before you post a stupid and irrelevant comment. She might come from Disney but she CAN sing. Oh and she only went to rehab once and that was because of her depression, cutting and anorexia/bulimia.

Why is Demi Lovato even considered famous? Shouldn't she have faded out even before her Disney contract ended? She's really a nobody. I don't see how she even gets gigs like this.
