‘X Factor’ Alum Rachel Crow on Britney Spears: I Think She’ll Have Fun With It (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)

By: Amanda Hasaka / June 27, 2012

When 14-year-old Rachel Crow competed on Season 1 of The X Factor, she sang for a judging panel comprised of executive producer Simon Cowell, record exec L.A. Reid, choreographer Paula Abdul and Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger.

But there have been major shakeups for Season 2 — namely, the addition of Britney Spears and Demi Lovato as judges.

Celebuzz spoke with singing sensation Crow, whose first EP dropped on June 26, and got her thoughts on the newest additions to FOX’s hit singing competition.

So what’s her verdict?

Crow approves!

Though she hasn’t met either of them yet, Crow thinks Lovato, 19, will bring a “younger demographic” and 30-year-old Spears will have fun with it.

And who does she think should replace ousted host Steve Jones? Though she didn’t give any names, Crow said the new host should be someone who is “spunky and cool” and likes to interview people. She added that 35-year-old Jones is “awesome.”

Crow also praised the original X Factor judges.

“Honestly, I loved the judges that were on my show,” she says. “Without them, I wouldn’t be sitting here with you today. So I think they’re amazing people, and they’re doing great things.”
