Demi Lovato and Britney Spears Welcome A New ‘X-Factor’ Judge [PHOTOS]

While Simon Cowell is at home battling bronchitis, UK X-Factor judge Louis Walsh is filling in for Kansas City, Missouri auditions.  He was joined by US judges Britney Spears, Demi Lovato and L.A. Reid at the Sprint Center to hear more contestants try to sing “Hold It Against Me.”

Report after report claims that Spears is unable to focus at auditions for a number of reasons, including ADHD that she can take medication to battle (it apparently can’t mix with her other meds).  During auditions in Texas last month, Spears got up from the judges’ table several times, which prompted some to ask whether Cowell made the right decision to hire her.

Do you think Spears is ready for live shows once The X-Factor airs in the fall?
