So you think you can
Nigel Lythgoe begs to differ!
Demi Lovato and Britney Spears are the new X Factor panelists but negative Nigel tells the world he never would’ve picked them to do Idol.
That's right — Nigel would do anything for his beloved show… but he won't do that! He insists:
"I hadn't ever considered them. I always like mentors who have a lot more experience."
Ouch! Tell us how you really feel!!
He admitted the two ladies might have a few salient pearls of wisdom to impart on younger contestants, since each dealt with child stardom.
"These two ladies have had so much personal experience; it'll be interesting. I like someone who's been there and knows the whole gamut of what these kids are going through and help them through."
Remember when Nigel smacked down Simon Cowell a few months ago and then banned mention of The Voice?
Sounds like someone is still a little ratings-cranky!
