‘X Factor’: Nick Jonas Paired w/ Demi Lovato for Judge’s House Round

27 08 2012

Although the Jonas brother has made no secret of his desire to join “American Idol,” he’ll appear in Fox’s other singing show this Fall.

If there’s one thing we’ve learned in the past four-plus years while observing the neverending shuffles of judges on shows like American Idol, X Factor and The Voice, it’s that singing competitions make for strange bedfellows.

Take, for example, the latest news to come out of the Fox fortress: X Factor‘s Demi Lovato is being paired up with fellow teen star Nick Jonas for the judges’ house portion of the show, THR has learned. This is the part of the competition where final cuts are made and the Top 16 acts are revealed — four for each judge (last year, show creator Simon Cowell made a fifth pick in Melanie Amaro, who eventually won the competition).

In an X Factor twist, each judge is given a group to mentor. Season two’s split has yet to be revealed, but several sites are reporting that the breakdown will look like this: Lovato will take on solo singers ages 12 to 16, Britney Spears will mentor singers 17 to 24, L.A. Reid will handle ages 25 and over and Cowell will guide the groups (a show rep tells THR that there have been changes to the divisions but wouldn’t confirm any details).

Meanwhile, the Lovato-Jonas connection is a deep and long-lasting one. Not only did the 20-year-old singer get her break with the lead role in the Jonas Brothers 2008 movie Camp Rock, but she’s also toured with the group extensively and dated Joe Jonas for a stint.

For his part, Nick Jonas has been actively campaigning for the judge’s seat on Fox’s other singing show, American Idol, tweeting that “it would be a dream come true.” While appearing on X Factor could give network brass an opportunity to see him doling out criticism on-air, it could just as easily dissuade them.

We’ll know soon enough as Idol auditions in front of the judges typically start in late September. X Factor season 2 is set to premiere on Sept. 12.

ALSO, Evan Rachel Wood Explains “Gay” Miley Cyrus Joke

After getting some some heat for calling Miley Cyrus “gay,” Evan Rachel Wood explained her comment and befriended Miley.

When the former “Hannah Montana” star stunned fans by chopping off her hair, Wood said, “I called it! Miley Cyrus is leaning toward gay.”

Wood recieved a lot of backlash for the post, leading her to take to Twitter again on Thursday to say, “Ok. To be clear. I believe you should be able to joke and have a sense of humor about everything. And I hate explaining, but just to be clear, I don’t judge people on how they look. Nor do I associate a hair style with sexuality.”

The 24 year-old actress continued, “I myself am bisexual and have always ‘joked’ about Miley giving me gay vibes. Not a bad thing! Just an observation. So I ‘joked’ when she cut her hair that it supported my case. But, I am not so close minded or into stereotypes or labeling. It was a joke.”

Wrapping up the explanatory rant, Miss Wood wrote, “I could (not) care less what gender she was attracted to. But don’t hate me for supporting her in whatever she chooses. It’s all fine by me.”

Miley proved she wasn’t bothered by the comment responding to Wood’s tweet by simply saying, “well said!” at which point Wood told her followers, “Now Miley Cyrus and I are friends. Let this be a lesson to all of you.”

Borgore on Working w/ Miley Cyrus & Shooting Video For ‘Decisions’ in September

23 08 2012

Borgore’s “Decisions” has been out for about two months now, but the song got a major push when Miley Cyrus tweeted to the world this week that she was the female vocalist on the track. Her tweet caught even the Israeli dubstep DJ off guard.

“I had no idea she was gonna do it, but I’m happy that Miley likes surprises more than I do,” Borgore told Rolling Stone of the collaboration. “There was nothing to hide from my side, nor from her side. It’s super cool she did it the way she did it.”

Borgore says they kept silent about Cyrus’ involvement at first to give the track a fair shake. “Welcome to Borgore and Miley’s social experiment,” he said, laughing. “What we were trying to do is make a tune together that we’re super happy about and just see people’s real opinion about this.”

Now that it’s been revealed, he isn’t worried about any potential backlash. “If someone used to like the tune before he knew she was on it, and now he doesn’t like it just because she’s on it, he’s lying to himself,” Borgore said. “I think being nonconformist is being the biggest conformist.”

The DJ said he had no reservations about working with the pop star. “You have to understand that I grew up in Israel, and the whole ‘Hannah Montana’ thing, I’ve never seen it,” he says. “I’ve heard about this, but the Miley Cyrus persona you might have in America I don’t have.

“All I see is a super hot girl that has an amazing voice and is super fun to work with,” he said.

Once in the studio, he was impressed: “I thought she was made up more to be a star, but she was pretty phenomenal behind the booth.”

Borgore said the two will be filming a video for the track in September. After that, he is open to working with Cyrus again in the future. “I wouldn’t say no to working with Miley, ’cause I think she’s a great singer. I already proved she’s great for what I do, and if she fits in one of my next tunes and she will want to be part of it, I’ll be happy,” he said.

In the more immediate future, Borgore is relocating to Los Angeles in September and starting work on both an EP and an album. “I’m releasing an EP more for my close circle, my hardcore fans, which will be super dubstep-ish, full on,” he said. “At the same time I’m working on an album that will hopefully be out the beginning of next year. My first album needs to be special.”

Demi Lovato Was ‘Nervous’ About X Factor Gig

23 08 2012

Apparently when Demi Lovato was first offered the X Factor judging gig, she sh-sh-shook in her high-heeled boots! The former Disney Princess recently dished:

“I really feel like being the first young judge on any of these vocal competition shows is a lot of pressure, but at the same time, it’s great because I get to bring in a perspective from the audience that’s around my age. I was nervous at first because it’s not like I have the experience that L.A., Simon and Britney have…”

But thank goodness she got all those butterflies out of her system and can rep the youth demo like the pro-fresh she is! Demi also recently expressed how she now believes she’s a perfect fit for Simon Cowell’s newly revamped X Factor. Demi shares:

“I know how hard people have to work to get to where they want to be, and I can spot somebody who has talent and who’s memorable and could be a pop star.”
