Britney Spears, Lovato would be great as contestants: Reid

Los Angeles: Singer L.A. Reid says his `The X Factor` fellow judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato would be a hit if they enter the show as participants.

"I think that both Britney and Demi would`ve been able to handle it. These girls are really talented and they were trained to work hard," quoted Reid as saying.

Describing Spears, 30, and Lovato, 20, as hardworking, he said: "They didn`t become a success because they were slackers. Both of them worked really, really hard coming up the ranks."

Reid joined the judge`s panel this year for the second time.
