Is Demi Lovato dissing on Justin Bieber during her time as a judge on the upcoming season of The X Factor USA 2013? It would appear so, according to this latest report from celebrity gossip website TMZ.
Reportedly, Demi was judging some of the acts when one contestant got dissed for acting like a punk while on the stage.
It all went down Wednesday on the campus of USC when Demi took exception to the attitude one contestant was giving off. Sources on set say when it was Demi’s turn to give her opinion on the 22-year-old wannabe, she said that the industry already has too many artists with bad attitudes and then commented, “We don’t need another little punk running the streets.”
Lovato’s next shot was less subtle … when a young man auditioned with Bieber’s own song, “As Long As You Love Me.” We’re told the audience loved his performance and so did the judges, but during her critique, Demi remarked, “Well finally someone can sing the song the way it was meant to be sung.”
Apparently Demi wasn’t feeling like she was in the insulting mood when she took to her official Twitter account to discuss the teen singer. She tweeted, “Btw – no shade thrown at Justin. So many people audition with his songs.. Finally someone sang it the way it was meant to be sung.. Meaning, finally someone sang it the way JUSTIN sang it. Ain’t got nothin’ but love for @justinbieber and his beliebers.”
Was Demi merely trying to head off Justin’s throngs of fans before they all got crazy and decided to start the hate in her general direction? What do you think? Share your thoughts below.

Demi said, “I am so excited to return as a judge and mentor on The X Factor. Last season was an unbelievable experience and I really enjoyed developing personal relationships with the contestants and the panel. I look forward to taking my previous experience and applying it to make this season even better!”
Simon Cowell chimed in to say, “I couldn’t be happier that Demi wants to come back this year. She’s a superstar in her own right and was a fantastic mentor last year. Even though she can be really, really annoying, I truly enjoyed working with her and so did the artists. I’m especially pleased she’s back, even during her world tour!”
FOX’s President of Alternative Entertainment, Mike Darnell, added, “We couldn’t be more excited for Demi to return to The X Factor next season. She’s an incredible mentor, an insightful judge and we know she’ll bring her amazing energy, enthusiasm and charm to the panel.

On tonight’s episode of “The X Factor USA”, two more contestants bit the dust in a double elimination. It was a shocking elimination for both of the competitors — as they were both good performers. In case you’ve missed the episode, you can read our full recap here.
Paige Thomas was the first contestant on the chopping block, with Mario Lopez and Khloe Kardashian announcing that America voted her off out of the competition. She changed up her routine last night and RickRolled the nation in a nice performance. Alas, it wasn’t enough to save her from America’s votes and thus, she was sent packing.
In a shocking turn, top three contender Vino Alan was placed in the bottom two alongside Diamond White. Neither performance was as bad as Cece Frey’s rendition of “Lady Marmalade”, yet some nefarious voters keep voting her back in. She was in the bottom two three times already and we were sure that Simon Cowell was right in telling her to pack her bags.
In the sing-off, Diamond kicked things off with Beyonce’s song “I Was Here”. Afterward, Vino belted out the lyrics to “Trouble” by Ray LaMontagne. In the end, three of the four judges voted to save Diamond and send Vino packing.
In the rankings, Carly Rose Sonenclar retained her lead, with Tate Stevens close by in second place. In third, Emblem3 had risen in the ranks, leaving fourth place to Fifth Harmony, who made a nice jump. Cece Frey made a nice jump, as well, but we’re crediting that to “Vote For The Worst” and not actual talent. Diamond fell a notch and rounded out the top six competitors.
What did you think of tonight’s elimination? Were you shocked to see Paige Thomas and Vino Alan eliminated?
Tonight on The X Factor USA 2012, there was a Thanksgiving double elimination episode. The show first claimed Britney Spears’ team member Arin Ray. Afterward, Cece Frey vied against Beatrice Miller in the final sing-off of the evening. Cece sang “Because Of You” by Kelly Clarkson and Beatrice performed “White Flag” by Dido. Unfortunately for Beatrice, her awesome performance was not enough to keep her in the competition. Ugh.
Last week we saw the double elimination of Jennel Garcia and Lyric145 and this week, Beatrice Miller and Arin Ray both left the competition. As you can see from our rankings graph, Cece Frey and Fifth Harmony both dropped in rank, while Paige Thomas and Diamond White both rose in the rankings. Emblem3 stayed the same from last week, along with Vino Alan. It was a shocker in the end, but we are happy to announce that per the viewer votes, Carly Rose Sonenclar came out on top with country singer Tate Stevens in second place in the rankings.
