Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus were both reportedly in the running for a seat at the judge's table on The X Factor. It was recently announced, however, that Demi beat out Miley for the spot. Why was Demi chosen over Miley?
According to a report from Hollywood Life, it seems Demi's life story tells a better tale than Miley Cyrus's does. Demi has spiraled down into a murky mire, but she worked her way back up. Miley dips down and dirty every now and then, but doesn't seem to show any remorse when she does, or get any help for what could very well be some serious issues.
"Simon Cowell loved how the negotiations went and the story that Demi Lovato can tell to her contestants will be a great wake up call for many of the contestants," a source close to The X Factor says.
Britney Spears was also given a seat at this season's judge's table, and Cowell believes the two ladies together can set some poignant examples for the contestants.
"Simon loves how both Britney Spears and Demi have been through so many ups and down that it will benefit the contestants in how they deal with the record industry. Miley just didn't have that raw emotional story that Demi has on her side," the source adds.
Do you think this will resonate deeply with Miley Cyrus? Might she now strive to clean up her life a bit? Even though she hasn't experienced the lows that Demi Lovato and Britney Spears have lived she still has some questionable behavior on her record. Might this diss on behalf of The X Factor make her realize it's time to clean up and settle down instead of living the life of a wild party girl?
