‘The X Factor’ USA: Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell shine in new promo

Fox has just released a brand-new promo for season 2 of “The X Factor,” and it’s funny stuff especially if you are a fan of Demi Lovato. If you were at all worried that some of the former Disney Channel star’s humor was not going to translate to this show, be prepare to breathe a sigh of relief.

This promo (which was first posted over on Mjsbigblog) does contain some pretty great one-liners from Demi about how no one is going to turn up to Simon Cowell’s funeral, how his breath stinks, and how grumpy and impatient he is when dealing with contestants. It’s actually pretty ironic in some ways — although Britney Spears was considered by and large to be the big get earlier this year with her $15 million contract, Demi may actually turn out to be the star at the end of the day. She brings a touch of enthusiasm to the show that wasn’t quite there before, and she’s not afraid to speak her mind rather than just handing out soundbites left and right proclaiming that everyone is a star and is going to do great things down the road.

Really, Demi actually gives us a reason to be excited about a show that we were honestly dreading for most of the fall. “The X Factor” was a program last fall that was marred by a number of problems, and it really felt like a giant soulless machine. Let’s hope that we are given some more reasons to stay excited this time around, and it extends beyond just the judges — there need to be great contestants and a co-hosting duo who knows how to keep everything in check.

Does this promo lead you to believe that Demi is going to be the star of this coming season? If you want to see a new music video from season 1 star Chris Rene, be sure and click here.
