First photo! Britney Spears and Demi Lovato are X Factor judges!

It’s been confirmed that both Britney Spears and Demi Lovato will be X Factor judges! Britney tweeted the above photo of her and Demi with Simon and L.A. Reid, starting a #britneyxfactor Twitter trending topic.

Demi reportedly still has a summer tour planned, and those dates are supposed to not conflict with her X Factor duties.

Not sure if this fresh pop star blood can rocket X Factor into the stratosphere like Simon Cowell hopes, but it’s definitely worth a shot. We’ll definitely be tuning in for a few episodes.

Being a judge on one of these shows is hard because you can’t be 100% encouragement. There are people singing their hearts out trying to live their dreams, and I’m sure it’s hard to be critical at that inspiring and vulnerable moment, but one or both of these ladies need to to bring a little spunk, and constructive criticism to the table.

It’s still being bandied about that Britney’s garnering a cool $15 million for this gig, which if true, is astronomical. (The ladies Britney and Demi are replacing Paula Adbul and Nicole Scherzinger got $2.5 million, and $1.5 million respectively.) Bring it, Britney!
