Yes, we know it's a singing competition, but the side show is always at the judges' table and this go-around, it looks like 20-year-old singer/actress Demi Lovato is out to give Simon Cowell a piece of his own verbal medicine.
The young star, who describes herself as the "happy judge," is not afraid to go up against the music and television industry icon, as evidenced in a recent promo where she calls the Brit "old and impatient" and orders him to "take a breath mint if you're going to get that close to my face." Yep, she said that to Simon!
Another great jab came after Simon told a contestant that he wouldn't want the song they performed at his funeral because no one would show up, to which sassy Demi responded, "Well, I think there's other reasons why nobody would turn up to your funeral." Oh snap!
Is it just good ol' fun or are these two heading down Hatred Highway? Tune into our two-night Season 2 premiere to find out on Wednesday, Sept. 12 and Thursday, Sept. 13 at 8/7c on FOX.
