Demi Lovato thinks Tate Stevens will win The X Factor and threw slight shade at Brit’s remaining contestant Carly Rose in a new interview with USA Today.
Biggest strength? “Her biggest strength is her voice,” says Lovato. “She’s like this freak of nature.”
Biggest weakness? “A part of me feels like she’s really serious all the time and she always sings these slow songs. I love watching someone that’s going to get my energy up. And she’s incredible, yes, but it’s definitely hard watching her sometimes. I think she’s pretty emotional for 13 and I don’t know how much she wants to be here. I don’t see the drive I see in some of the other contestants’ eyes.” Lovato says she would “like to see her act like she’s having fun.”
Chances of being signed to a recording contract anyway? “I think that probably the Disney/Nickelodeon world will try to ****** her up. I think that’s obviously a given. Same with Diamond (White, who was sent packing last week). They have careers ahead of them, so they shouldn’t worry.”
One thing she needs to do to win it all? “With Carly, she’s going to have to decide if she’s taking the serious route or maybe go the more fun route. Sometimes it’s hard to be singing about love at a very young age. Maybe she’ll just have to wait until she’s older to give it a shot.”
Who will win? Without hesitation, Demi says, “Tate Stevens!”
