Colorful New Photos Of The X Factor Season 2 Judges Together

The X Factor may still be without a new host (or hosts), but the series' judges panel is ready to go. And with the singing competition ready to kick off in about a month, that's a good thing. Fox released some colorful new photos of judges Simon Cowell, Britney Spears, Demi Lovato and L.A. Reid.

This first one comes courtesy of TVLine and has Spears and Lovato set in the middle and all smiles between Cowell and Reid. They're standing under the words "Unforgettable. UnXpected." The very definition of "The X Factor"?

The fuchsia background is certainly unforgettable and unexpected. Also, is Demi Lovato's blond hair a new development? Or am I just behind the times on my celeb-photo viewing?

This next one has a bit of a news-team vibe to it, but everyone gets points for their outfits, and I think I prefer the colorful striped background to the wall of pink in the previous photo…

With The X Factor set to return September 12 & 13, there's just the matter of finding the co-hosts. A recent update on that front had Glee's Kevin McHale in the running for the male-side of what will possibly be a male-female duo of hosts for Season 2. We'll keep an ear out for updates!
