Just a day after FOX made the official announcement, Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio joined Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell at the judges table. The two fresh
women arrived on their first day of their new gig on time. I couldn’t say the same for Cowell.
Three beautiful ladies and Simon is the one who’s taking the longest to get ready. In actuality, the Brit judge kept the three ladies waiting due to traffic problems as a result of flooding caused by heavy rains in the area. The FOX reality show began its first day of filming Season 3 in Charleston, South Carolina on Tuesday May 21.
As the ladies waited for their boss, Kelly joked, “Ooooh, I’ll be Simon,” as she plopped herself in his seat. When Cowell finally arrived, he asked the audience, “Is it a coincidence that when I arrive, everything gets better?” That cocky Brit ;)
Speaking of seating assignments, I was a little surprised that Rowland received the coveted spot by Cowell. Given his chemistry with Lovato, I thought she’d remain in her slot. Perhaps, during the audition process the show will play around with the seating arrangement to determine the best fit. Check out more photos from the first day of filming below.
FOX is expected to make a formal announcement tomorrow when production begins in Charleston, N.C., but EW.com is confirming the official judging lineup for The X Factor Season 3. Unlike previous seasons, or any singing show for that matter, the panel will consist of three ladies and one man. The complete opposite of The Voice’s current format of three men and one woman. I’m sure Simon Cowell won’t mind sharing the spotlight with three talented and attracted women.
As previously reported, it appears Kelly Rowland is heading back to the X Factor family. The 32-year-old singer previously sat on the panel on the UK version, the year Little Mix won. Find out who the third judge is below. Here’s a hint: Cowell is adding a little bit of spice.
Trying to beat the pirates at their own game, Demi Lovato streamed her entire album a full week ahead of its official release earlier this week. The 20-year-old clearly is still in the giving mood. She also sharing photos from upcoming album Demi as well. Snapped by celebrity photographer Rankin, Lovato sports numerous looks including a high-pony grown-up chick side to a more avant garde one with lacy fabric covering her face. Check out all the photos below.
Can’t wait til May 14 to check out Demi Lovato’s fourth studio album, Demi? You’re in luck. The 20-year-old singer is beating the pirates at their own game and leaked her entire album a full week ahead of its scheduled release. Lovato rolled them out as her fans tweeted a certain song title. The more people tweeted, the faster the song was unlocked. Those Lovatics sure are a dedicated bunch.
Based on first impression after listening to each track really quickly, I have to say it has definite potential. In an earlier interview, Demi said the album will “provide inspiration for girls everywhere who are going through the same issues” she faced. In fact, there’s supposed to be a sequel to her hit song “Skyscraper” on her new effort. Listen to the tracks below and try to figure out which track she’s referring to. My early favorite is the fun bouncy “Made In The USA.” Fully expect the inevitable mashup with Miley’s “Party In The USA” to come soon. Without further ado, check out Demi below.
I always gravitate towards music when I’m hanging out at home and listen to anything from lounge music, top 40 to electronic/house tunes. At any given time, there is a Dance Party Playlist on my iPhone which usually contains remixes of popular Top 40 hits and come in handy for various activities like cleaning the apartment, showering, laundry or going for a run.
Here are 6 tracks currently on my playlist. Leave me some of your suggestions in the comments below. I’d love to know what you’re listening to.
Check out the tracks on the next part of the post.
Compared to last year, it’s been relatively quiet on The X Factor casting front. Before Britney Spears and Demi Lovato officially came on board, practically every pop star’s name was mentioned as a possible replacement for Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul. This year, with exception to Cheryl Cole, there really hasn’t been anyone I can recall as a rumored potential judge.
With so many singing competitions on the air, not to mention in the UK and Australia, the pool of interested musicians wanting to judge is very limited. Maybe that explains this potential rumor. That, or musicians might think the FOX show is a sinking ship and don’t want any part of it. Find out who’s reportedly in the mix below.
With her upcoming fourth studio album, Demi Lovato is determined to show she’s all grown up. Simply titled Demi, the 20-year-old promises the dawning of a more mature era. Nothing says grown up more than dressing in black ;)
The former Disney star debuted her brand new clip exclusively at E! Online on Tuesday night. (April 9). After four teasers, it was about friggin’ time. Directed by Chris Applebaum, the “Heart Attack” music video begins with Lovato emerging from a pool of black paint. The rest of the clip switches between scenes of Demi sporting a rocker look with her band or wearing a simple white v-neck while working paint-soaked hands and a fairly make-up free face.
Applebaum’s previous credits include clips for Neon Hitch (“F U Betta”), Miley Cyrus (“Party in the U.S.A.”) and Rihanna (“Umbrella”) to name a few. Check out his collaboration with Demi below.
Recently-renewed X Factor judge Demi Lovato gave her fans, aka Lovatics, a treat this Easter weekend. Much like an Easter egg hunt, the 20-year-old singer made her fans work for it. She asked them to scratch the white background over at demiwhiteout.com to unveil the cover art for her upcoming studio album, Demi, scheduled to hit stores on May 14.
Underneath, was a provocative new look we haven’t seen from the “Heart Attack” singer before. Speaking of that track, the lyrics are a little contradictory to her album artwork, “You make me glow, but I cover up, won’t let is show.” She definitely lets some of it show ;)
The former Disney star is taking another step to distance herself from her tween-friendly image. Wearing just a few smudges of glitter, Lovato is shown topless while covering her “lovatos“. Personally, I like the idea of the provocative image, but she seems a little too goth. What do you think? Sound off below.
