Photogs caught up with Simon Cowell in Beverly Hills this week and of course asked him about Brit on The X Factor.

He says they are “doing the best they can” as judges, revealing:

“I’ve worked with much harder. Honest to god they are doing the job we paid them to do, and they are doing a great job. They are both, albeit feverish, but we hired them for that. They are trying to find a star, and give constructive advice. They ought to be my mentor”

Simon had nothing but nice things to say about Britney, but confessed Demi is a bit of a “brat.”

“She represents a younger audience and she’s smart, but a bit of a brat. But I like brats. She’s got amazing instincts, this girl. She could work for a record label; she knows how to spot a star. I am really impressed with her. She’s smart, she knows what she’s doing, and she wants to do a good job.”

“They’ve both been child stars. They want to find somebody else, and I’m very impressed with them.”
