‘The X Factor’ USA: Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato develop quick chemistry

Is Demi the real star?

Even though Britney Spears may have been the one receiving the vast majority of headlines before the start of “The X Factor” this season, it may end up being Demi Lovato who steals the show as the new star of the judging panel.

Why? Based on everything we are hearing, she’s doing a fantastic job. Most of the people who witnessed the former Disney Channel star at the Austin auditions over the weekend praised her for being honest, quick-witted, and for also having some fun banter with both Britney and Simon Cowell. Simon jokingly called Demi “annoying” on his Twitter account, and some sources told Celebuzz that she made fun of Cowell for being both “old and impatient” during some of the auditions.

Moving forward, Demi and the judges are going to be heading to Kansas City to do even more auditions for the show — and hopefully, there everyone will establish their chemistry even better as a group. Despite some of the negative headlines about Spears supposedly walking off the set (which were greatly exaggerated, as she was just taking a break).

“The X Factor” season 2 does not have an official premiere date yet, but expect to see it return to TV at some point in September.

Which judge are you the most excited to see on TV?
