‘The X Factor’: Simon Cowell, Britney Spears talk season 2 on ‘Kimmel’

Following the premiere of “The X Factor” Wednesday night, two of the show’s most-popular judges in Britney Spears and Simon Cowell each appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” to have a little bit of post-show fun.

As if Simon really cares about this, Jimmy started things off by saying that he really enjoyed watching the show. He also praised Simon for “getting rid of the terrible host,” and said that Demi Lovato came out of nowhere and did a great job. When it comes to huge quotes or news-making items, we cannot really say here that there was one moment in particular in this two videos that people are going to be talking about. However, as a whole they are thoroughly entertaining to watch just to get that additional perspective on why Simon and Britney wanted to work together in the first place, how much they are enjoying it, and just how L.A. Reid is more or less invisible now thanks to all of the superstars that make up the panel.

We are still waiting for the official numbers to come in from the season premiere, but we do expect this to be a rather enormous launch for the show. After all, “The X Factor” is supremely popular as a brand itself, and the presence of these high-profile new faces could really be enough for it to surge over the top and become one of the most-watched programs on all of television.

What do you think about these videos, and are you as excited as ever to watch the second episode of the show airing Thursday night? We want to hear from you below! If you want to check out our full review of the premiere, including some of the standout acts, all you have to do is head on over to the link here.
