On The X Factor last season, Nicole Scherzinger stepped out from behind the judging table and took center stage for a special performance. Simon Cowell hopes Britney Spears and Demi Lovato will follow suit and perhaps team up for a collaboration.
"I want to see a Demi/Britney duet! Why not?," he tells ETonline. Demi, who's excited for audiences to see Britney's personality "shine," would certainly pursue the opportunity.
The show is just days away from premiering, but noticeably missing is a host. Simon says fans will have to hold tight a bit longer because the audition shows don't have an emcee or voiceover. Those initial episodes rely on the "contestants to tell the story themselves." He's excited to show more behind the scenes reality than ever before, admitting, "This is the first time I genuinely know what it's like to be a contestant on the show."
