Simon Cowell has always been dubbed the “mean” judge on pretty much every show he’s been a part of – American Idol, Britain’s Got Talent, The X-Factor – but by the sounds of it, Demi might be taking his spot in that department. She recently opened up about her new judging techniques to MTV News, saying, “I’ve raised my bar, I put a lot of people through last year that had the overall package but didn’t have the best voices. And now I’ve raised the bar where I am not putting anyone that I don’t think has a winning capability, and so I say no to a lot of people. I may come across as a mean judge, but it’s very matter of fact and I’m very, very brutally honest.”

Hm, interesting!

Do you think Demi needs to be tougher on the contestant?

Or do you prefer her judging style from last season?
