During the auditions on the USC campus, which may or may not ever be televised, mind you, Lovato looked askance at the attitude one contestant was projecting. On-set sources say that when it was Lovato's turn to emote on the 22-year-old contestant, she said that the industry already has too many artists with bad attitudes, adding, "We don't need another little punk running the streets."
The next barb that Lovato gave was far less subtle. After a contestant auditioned with Justin Bieber’s own track, “As Long As You Love Me,” she told the young man, "Well finally someone can sing the song the way it was meant to be sung.”
Ouch, in addition to Lovato, sources say the rest of the judges were impressed with the young man, as well as the audience.
Bieber's rendition of "As Long as You Love Me" is embedded. While we have no video of the contestant available, yet, what do you think of Bieber's crooning?
