Simon Cowell on the New Feisty Britney Spears and Bickering With Demi Lovato

X Factor judge Simon Cowell’s trademark charm is due in part  to his closet of starched white button downs — but mostly owed to the strong-willed women surrounding him at the judges’ table. In a group interview with reporters after The X Factor live results show on November 15, 2012, Simon discussed the two leading ladies in his life: fellow judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato, having just clashed with both of them onstage. On Wednesday, Britney told Simon off for... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/T8dbktaZAfg/simon-cowell-on-the-new-feisty-britney-spears-and-bickering-with-demi-lovato

X Factor Judge Demi Lovato on Who Really Should Have Gone Home Last Night

It was an emotional night for Planet X Factor on November 16, with first Lyric 145 peacing out, and then Jennel Garcia going home. But of everyone watching, the person most surprised at Jennel’s departure was her mentor, Demi Lovato. Demi introduced her contestant in the sing-off (against fellow Young Adult team member Paige Thomas) by saying "she doesn’t deserve to be in the bottom two." She has been vocally supportive of Jennel since day 1 and was overcome with... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/y0a-WCMIbi8/x-factor-judge-demi-lovato-on-who-really-should-have-gone-home-last-night

The X Factor’s Jennel Garcia on Her Elimination: The Judges “Took Me Out” For Strategic Reasons

Nobody was shocked more than we were when Demi Lovato’s protégé, Jennel Garcia, was booted off The X Factor on the November 15 live results show. After a sing-off in which Jennel sang Hoobastank’s "The Reason" against Paige Thomas’s rendition of Coldplay’s "Paradise," the judges voted to send Jennel home. Well, some of them did. Britney Spears and L.A. Reid named the singer as their choice for elimination right away, but Simon Cowell... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/BJVbYtNPBIk/the-x-factors-jennel-garcia-on-her-elimination-the-judges-took-me-out-for-strategic-reasons

'The X Factor' results: Jennel Garcia and Lyric 145 respond to double elimination

The first double elimination of "The X Factor" Season 2 claimed two unfortunate victims: hip-hop trio Lyric 145 -- the most energetic and original act on the show -- and early favorite Jennel Garcia -- who struggled to define herself as a rocker."I'm not bummed out," says Lyric Da Queen, who entered the competition as a solo act before partnering in a group with brothers Julien and Jemelle Joseph. "I do wish we could've showed the world what we really could do, and do what we originally planned: original lyrics in hip-hop. But I don't believe in coincidences, I think everything happens for a reason. Now the door is open."Garcia agrees that it's best to view the elimination as a new beginning. "It's time for me to show the world who I am," Garcia says. "Coming into this competition I lost myself. But I was looking for a place to grow and someone to guide... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/11/the-x-factor-results-jennel-garcia-and-lyric-145-respond-to-double-elimination.html

'The X Factor': Why Simon Cowell made Demi Lovato choose who to send home

Week three of live eliminations turned out to be a rough night for Demi Lovato on "The X Factor."After Simon Cowell's hip-hop trio Lyric 145 was eliminated by the public vote, two of the three contestants on Lovato's team -- Paige Thomas and Jennel Garcia -- were forced to go head-to-head in a sing-off to determine the evening's second elimination. And Cowell didn't make the tough moment any easier for Lovato.After L.A. Reid and Britney Spears voted for Garcia to go home, Cowell could've done the same and Lovato wouldn't have had to cast a vote of her own. Instead, he forced Lovato to make a choice."I knew I was gonna keep Paige which meant [Demi] wasn't going to have to make a decision," Cowell explains after the show with his trademark wicked grin. "I thought, bearing in mind they're both your artists, I want to see which one you're going to... destroy their career.""It... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/11/the-x-factor-why-simon-cowell-made-demi-lovato-choose-who-to-send-home.html

How Did The X Factor Top 10 Rank? November 15, 2012 Live Show Results

Although it’s cool that The X Factor revealed the rankings of their Top 10, our favorite thing is to imagine the awkwardness of backstage/hotel antics. Does #10 have to give cuts in line for lasagna to 1-9? Does #1 have to wash dishes, or does she get passies? If there’s only one used Mario Lopez tank top to claim, does the ranking system play into who gets to wear it to bed? It makes you think. With those visuals in mind, here’s the ranking order: 1.
