‘The X Factor’ USA: Demi Lovato lets Simon Cowell eat cake

We still realize that the vast majority of the buzz surrounding this upcoming season of “The X Factor” is around Britney Spears bringing a piece of pop music royalty to the judging panel — but we still admit that there is just as much of us excited to see how Demi Lovato fares being one of the youngest judges in reality show history. She’s only 19 years old, but she has already shown off her fantastic sense of humor, and her chemistry with Simon Cowell may already be the best part of the new series. (Admittedly, though, we do wish we knew who the co-hosts for the show were going to be so that we could get a better read on them.)

So what’s the latest stunt between Demi and Simon? Let’s just say that it involves a bit of tasty cake. In a post on her Twitter account, the “Skyscraper” singer posted the hilarious photo to the left along with this caption:

“Getting along with @SimonCowell is a piece of cake!!!”

We can already say with confidence that within the past of a few weeks, Demi has already managed to get Simon to embarrass himself more than he traditionally does on shows like this. After all, he refused to get up and dance on “Britain’s Got Talent” after he promised he would if a dog act was declared the winner. Ashleigh & Pudsey ended up taking the top prize, and Pudsey is now up there with Uggie from “The Artist” as one of the most famous pooches in the business.

We will finally get an opportunity to see Simon and Demi’s back-and-forth on television when season 2 of “The X Factor” premieres on Fox September 12. Until then, be sure to check out some of our other coverage of the show!
