Demi Lovato: 'I expected Britney Spears to be a diva'

Former Disney starlet Demi Lovato has admitted that when she first heard that she would be sharing the judging table with Britney Spears, she expected to be in for some 'diva' behaviour.

Speaking to People magazine, the 'Give Your Heart A Break' star explained she was pleasantly surprised to discover that the pop superstar was down to earth and very sweet:

"What surprised me the most about Britney is that she's actually really quirky. You kind of expect a legendary pop star [to] sometimes [be], like, a diva or something, but she's really not. She's a sweet, down-to-earth, Southern girl."

Lovato added that while the panelists seem to be of great interest to the press, it's important to remember that the contestants should be the main focus because it's their talent the programme is all about:

"At the end of the day, it's about the contestants. It's not about us as judges. I think other shows maybe forget that the entire purpose of the competition is to find a superstar, not to get publicity for the wrong [reasons]."
