We're totally loving this season of X Factor—chock full of exceptional talent!
Which is why we adored catching up with judges Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland, and Paulina Rubio, as well as contestants at the season 3 finalists' party held at SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills on Monday night.
The celebs and hopefuls revealed plenty of juicy deets for Motown week, but our fav Demi-corn couldn't help but dish on pushing her vocally amaze team to the brink, explaining:
"I feel like I've challenged all my contestants. Trying to play with their range a little more!"
The highlight of our night came from Simon Cowell who confessed one of the groups reminded him of his mega-successful boy bad One Direction!
