The X Factor on Fox is bigger, better, bolder and back for Season Two.
"And with the addition I have to say of Madam," said Simon Cowell.
At the world famous luxury Beverly Hills Hilton hotel Fox Chicago's Tisha Lewis sat face to face with Simon Cowell and new judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato and returning judge L.A. Reid.
It's Britney and a whole new side of the Princess of Pop you've never seen before.
"We're brilliant. We're the bomb," said Britney Spears.
Judge Britney takes a no holds barred approach this season at the judges table at times shattering the dreams of X-Factor hopefuls.
"It was hard for me at first, it really really was and then you gradually get used to it," said Spears.
But the harsh critic of the cast of judges has good things to say about Chicago's talent pool.
"There were a lot of talented people," said Spears.
"Historically we've done well in Chicago, that's why we keep going back there," said Cowell.
Confident in her new role as judge, Ms. Spears says the X-Factor is the total package.
"I want them to be able to perform, I want them to feel alive on stage and of course their voice has to be amazing as well," said Spears.
"For the first time you're absolutely seeing what it's like to be a contestant on one of these shows - we've gone way back stage so kind of the contestants narrate the story this time… It's new judges, it's a whole brand new way of making the show," said Cowell.
You be the judge! Wednesday nights on Fox.
