‘The X Factor’ USA: Demi Lovato goes pink for Oakland auditions

Here's the Oakland look.

The X Factor” is holding its third audition of season 2 in Oakland, and there already are some interesting changes — at least when it comes to appearances.

After first donning a look in both Dallas and Kansas City that was strictly blonde, Demi Lovato sported (as evidenced by the photo to the left) some rather distinct pink streaks in her hair. Did this make her any edgier? If nothing else, it made Simon Cowell even more annoyed with her than he has been already this season. In a post on Twitter, the “head judge” (who is back in action after falling ill before the Kansas City tryouts) shared his “all in good fun” opinion about the “Skyscraper” singer:

“Unfortunately Britney & Demi are now known as the gruesome twosome. V happy to be back-Demi more annoying than ever, Britney [Spears] has grown claws!”

While it may not be as obvious as Demi’s pink hair, we also have to turn our attention to L.A. Reid’s red pants — a sign that he possibly believes he is still on vacation at his massive house in the Hamptons.

Fox has yet to announce the actual premiere date for the new “X Factor” season — but given the show’s history (and the fact that they would likely not want to have it running up against the Christmas holiday), we have a feeling it could start at mid-September at the earliest. The real test for Demi as well as Britney is seeing how they can fare in a live TV environment — since Demi has received especially rave reviews as a judge so far, expectations are higher than ever (see: through the roof) that she will do a fantastic job.

What do you think of Demi’s new “X Factor” look?
