While L.A. Reid jokes that the former 'Sonny with a Chance' star is giggling when watching Troy Kurtis' act, fellow judge Britney Spears admits the Latino singer's performance is 'very sexy.'
The judges of "The X Factor (US)" were treated to a sexy performance by a former member of Latin boy band Menudo during the Wednesday, June 27 auditions in Providence, Rhode Island. Singing a Spanish song, Troy Kurtis wooed the audience with his voice as well as commanding stage presence.
Knowing Demi Lovato's love for all things Spanish, L.A. Reid teased her during the judges' commentary, saying, "[Demi's] sweating. She's giggling" because of Kurtis' performance. Britney Spears, meanwhile, seemingly enjoyed his stage act as she admitted it was "very sexy."
For the taping of the FOX singing show, "Camp Rock" star Lovato donned a black and floral print, long-sleeved dress which she paired with a black vest. As for her fellow judge Spears, she showed serious cleavage in a tight, low-cut red dress.
Words have swirled around that Spears appeared to be a tougher judge than Simon Cowell. Insiders said she's very straight-forward with the contestants. "She knows it takes more than having a good singing voice and that you have to be entertaining and have that 'wow' factor. She can really tell the difference between a good singer and a great performer," a source dished on the "Womanizer" songstress.
Cowell, however, knew how to keep himself under the spotlight as he made a unique entrance on Thursday, June 28 morning. Instead of being driven in a limo, the British producer opted to ride a little scooter to the Dunkin' Donuts center, where the auditions were held, from his hotel.
