Returning for a new season later this month, talent competition show THE X FACTOR freshens up the judges panel with two new and familiar faces. Joining series creator SIMON COWELL and record-producer L.A. REID, former Disney darling DEMI LOVATO and pop-tart BRITNEY SPEARS (also a Disney alum) bring fresh voices to the cheers and jeers aimed at hopeful wannabes struggling to make it in show-biz.
An outspoken critic of bullying in schools and on-line, LOVATO knows that there’s power in words and that language can hurt. During a telephone press conference yesterday, she talked about the fine line between criticism and potential bullying and noted that she’ll be very careful in her judgement of the contestants.
