America, meet your (somewhat) revamped 'X Factor' judging panel -- according to several media reports, 19-year-old singer and actress Demi Lovato will join newly-signed pop star Britney Spears, music executive L.A. Reid and series creator Simon Cowell when the talent show starts its second season.
Since cleaning house on 'The X Factor' judges' panel, Simon Cowell has been on the search for two qualified replacements for 'American Idol' vet Paula Abdul and Pussycat Doll, Nicole Scherzinger. With Britney Spears now on board, Cowell has narrowed in on a fourth judge. The one stipulation? She must be a brunette. So which brown-haired beauty has Cowell called on?
After the first season of 'X Factor' wrapped, Simon Cowell wasted no time cleaning house, quickly dismissing fellow judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger. Now it seems he's found a replacement for one of them: Britney Spears.
