Judges’ commentary:

L.A. Reid said that was by far her very best performance yet, by a long shot. She found her voice, her movement. He commended Demi for getting it right. Britney Spears said this was a legitimate risk to take, but it worked. Simon Cowell asked who chose her outfit because this was the first time that she’s looked and sounded like a legitimate pop star. The song was brave and a risk and it paid off. He said it’s clear that she has to make more decisions about what she does. Demi Lovato said she is so proud of her and it was awesome.
