John Legend: "Britney Spears and Demi Lovato aren't really singers"

John Legend has taken a stab at X Factor USA's new judges, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato.

The pair were announced for the show after months of speculation, replacing departing judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul.

However, speaking to E! News, vocal star John Legend criticised the show for having Britney Spears and Demi Lovato judge the talent when they "aren't really singers" themselves. He said:

"You know, it's interesting. It should be very interesting. I don't have much to say. It's interesting when people you know who are judging singing competitions when they aren't really singers. It's interesting."
