Louis Virtel: WATCH: Does Britney Have The X Factor?

If crazy Britney and troubled Demi Lovato don't deserve to be on the X Factor panel, who does? Watch me moan about it. I started on this difficult topic last week, but Britney Spears and Demi Lovato aren't the first people I'd ask to judge anything . Literally anything. And because the institution of reality television is sacred, it pains me that Britney and Demi have taken up two valuable spots as judges on Simon Cowell's enormous freakshow X Factor . Will Britney burn the whole place down on day one? Will Demi do it and blame it on Britney? (Clever.) The possibilities for despair are endless. The question remains: If these two are wrong for the job, then who's right? In this week's Weeklings , I tear apart all the other candidates for Simon Cowell's co-anchors. This means Madonna, Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Sheryl Crow, Paula Abdul, Nelly Furtado, and the Jonas Brothers all come up and go down hard. Scared? Don't be! Unless you're Avril Lavigne. You can find previous Weeklings episodes here . //feeds.huffingtonpost.com/~r/HP/Entertainment/~3/Ki8ym1N-iNw/britney-x-factor_b_1528390.html

Demi Lovato's 'X Factor' salary can't compare to Britney Spears'

On Monday, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato appeared onstage with Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid to officially confirm their positions as judges for Season 2 of "The X Factor" in the United States. Though the announcement came as no surprise, it was met with thunderous applause."I'm so excited about this whole experience," Spears told the audience. "It's going to be so fun and is so different than anything I've done. I'm ready to find a true star." She's also ready, we presume, to collect the whopping $15 million paycheck offered to her for the season.Lovato's payday will be considerably smaller. TMZ reports that the singer/actress will make slightly over a million dollars for her participation in the show. Though it may seem meager in comparison to Spears' enormous salary... well, it's still a million dollars. Lovato's doing pretty well for herself given that she's only 19 -- which was very clear in her statement to... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/05/demi-lovatos-x-factor-salary-cant-compare-to-britney-spears.html
