What the X Factor USA judges said
“I did think that was really strong… at the beginning it felt a bit mechanical to me but when you went into the cage and the second verse you started to own the song,” said LA Reid.
“I thought the song choice was really great… you have one of the most powerful voices in this competition… I just wanted to see you having more fun,” said Demi Lovato.
“I’ve got to admit the talent tonight has totally blown me away… and I’m seeing a massive transformation, and Britney I think you’ve done a really good job with this girl… You came across like a relevant pop star,” said Simon Cowell.
“You impressed me so much. I am so incredibly proud of you,” said Britney Spears.
