Britney Spears, Demi Lovato, L.A. Reid, and Simon Cowell were at the judges' table last night as The X Factor went live for the first time in its second season. Britney herself admitted to being a bit nervous about going live during an interview earlier this week. The episode also marked the debut of new hosts Mario Lopez and Khloé Kardashian.
The remaining 16 contestants took to the stage to sing last night, and while the live broadcast went off without much of a hitch, Simon Cowell did have to be bleeped at one point when he used a curse word in critiquing one hopeful's performance. The competition continues tonight, when the four judges will have to send some of the contestants home.
