‘The X Factor’ notes: Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell

In less than one week, “The X Factor” will be upon us despite some ridiculous move from “The Voice” to be competitive, and we are going to see a judging panel that we are more excited about than any other in entertainment at the moment: Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid, and Britney Spears.

When it comes to this group, it at least looks at the moment as though everyone is ready and willing share a little it of love back and forth. Will that last? Probably not. In the video below, you can first and foremost see the judges offer up some nice opinions on Simon not only as a judge, but as a genuinely good human being. Demi’s comments are probably the most candid of the bunch, mostly because she openly admits to being terrified of him before sitting down in the judges’ chair; but at the end of the day, she really turned this around and admitted that Simon is a pretty good guy.

Meanwhile, Demi continued her publicity tour on Wednesday night by stopping by her pal Jimmy Fallon’s late-night show to share a few thoughts about taking on this gig. Overall, she seemed to be more than excited in talking about the show, and she also said just how excited that she was to be both nominated and performing on the show for the first time this year. Demi’s VMA performance will air during the pre-show starting at 7:00 p.m. Eastern time, and we will of course have more from this big show later. (Does anyone else think that Jimmy’s friendship with Demi is both awkward and hilarious at the same time?)
