Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell Attack Each Other Over Emblem3 on X Factor (VIDEOS)


By Michael Lewittes



Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell were at each other’s throats on Wednesday over his “X Factor” contestants, Emblem3.

The three-member boy band has long been considered among the favorites to win the singing competition, but Lovato shot the guys down after both of their performances.


While L.A. Reid and Britney Spears were very impressed with the trio’s version of Bruno Mars’ “Just the Way You Are,” Lovato griped it “wasn’t the best,” and told them guys it felt like “a downgraded version of the Jonas Brothers five years ago.”

Cowell then stuck up for his contestants, calling Lovato “Cruella” and telling her “that was incredibly dumb what you just said.”

But the bickering didn’t end there.

Following Emblem3’s rendition of the Alphaville song “Forever Young,” Reid noted they “nailed it,” while Spears declared it a “superstar performance.”

Lovato, however, continued to poke holes in their performance, prompting Cowell to ask, “What is the matter with you tonight?!”
