The X Factor USA

7:30pm – Thursday, September 13 on TV 3

Multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning worldwide pop icon Britney Spears and singer, songwriter and actress Demi Lovato join L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell as judges on The X Factor USA, the hit singing competition series returning to our screens for its second season on Thursday, September 13 th at 7:30pm on 3. “I’m absolutely delighted Britney and Demi are joining us,” says Simon Cowell. “Britney remains one of the biggest stars in the world, she’s talented, fascinating – and I believe she knows exactly how to spot the X factor. Demi’s had an amazing career in music, TV and film for someone her age. She’s young, confident, and enthusiastic. I think it’s really important that she speaks to our younger audience. The new panel will be dynamic and will work really well with the changes we are making to the show.”

“I couldn’t be more excited to join The X Factor USA judging panel,” adds Spears. “I’m a huge fan of the show and now I get to be a part of the action. Simon and L.A. better watch out!”

“I’m so thrilled to join this legendary group of judges on The X Factor USA,” says Lovato. “To be able to spend each week with Simon, L.A. and Britney watching the best that America has to offer is truly a dream come true.”

The X Factor USA will see the four judges hit the road across America for a massive audition tour to find contestants who might have the ‘X factor’.

The auditions were open to singers of all ages – either solo performers or groups. Once through to the final audition process, the four judges will take on mentoring roles as the performers are split into categories – Boys under 25, Girls under 25, the over 25s and Groups. This will culminate with a huge weekly LIVE show, where the singers will battle it out in front of the judges and the U.S. public.

But before this happens, make sure not to miss your first introduction to the thousands that tried out when The X Factor USA premieres with those sometimes more than just-a-little embarrassing auditions on Thursday, September 13 th and Friday, September 14 th at 7:30pm on 3.
