Nigel Lythgoe Did Not Want Britney Or Demi

So you think you can dance judge?

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.

He added:

"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!
