John Legend: Britney Spears and Demi Lovato “Aren’t Really Singers” (VIDEO)


By Daniel Gates



John Legend is not exactly sold on the recent additions to “The X Factor.”

The performer is set to appear on rival singing show “Duets,” and E! asked him — along with fellow “Duets” stars Kelly Clarkson and Robin Thicke — for reaction to the big news that Britney Spears and Demi Lovato have joined “X Factor.”


Clarkson was enthusiastic, saying, “I’m excited for both of them, I’m a big fan of both of them… I think those two are two girls you really want to root for… I think it’ll be good for [the show].”

Thicke was also positive, remarking, “Everything Britney does she excels at, Demi is a lovely young lady, [and] I’m sure they’ll do nothing but make the show a lot more fun to watch.”

But Legend took a bit of a jab at the incoming “X Factor” stars.

“It should be very interesting. I don’t have much to say. It’s interesting when people that, you know, are judging singing competitions when they aren’t really singers,” he quipped.

What do you think of Legend’s comments?
