Demi Lovato and Kelly Rowland Are MFEO on X Factor

New BFFs on TV: These independent women have each other's back.

In every reality singing competition, there are always two judges who will either be the best of friends or the worst of frenemies. You’ve got Adam Levine and Blake Shelton on The Voice (bros), Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj on American Idol season 12 (not bros), and now, Demi Lovato and Kelly Rowland on The X Factor, who might as well be besties.

From what I’ve seen in the first two episodes of the new season, Demi and Kelly (Delly? Kemi?) bring out the best in each other. Returning judge Demi has always been a fireball, but with Kelly around, she’s fiercer, wittier, and generally more interesting to watch. Kelly, on the other hand, is new to the scene, and it helps that Demi has her back. (New judge Paulina Rubio is cool, too, but more like a supporting character—so far.)

Take what happened at the audition of bug-a-boo ice cream man Jorge Pena. Dude was so full of himself that when Demi was about to give her critique, he said, "Tell me, woman." Woman? Seriously??? Demi, of course, told him off, and Kelly followed up with, “While you were singing, I was like, Oh my gosh, I don't know what he said; he could be telling me I look like a donkey. (He sang in Spanish.) When you started getting slick with my girl, Now he's acting like a donkey." Dude passed the auditions, but I don't think he'll be around for much longer.

Later on, 19-year-old cutie patootie Al Calderon—who actually reminds me of Candy Cuties Alex Diaz and Rammy Bitong!—blew everyone away with his sparkling eyes and charisma. Kelly was all, "If I were 18, I would want you to take me out on a date." Simon just had to say, "We don't have a time machine." Before Kelly could put Simon in his place, Demi was quick to tell him, "Okay, you of all people should not be talking about time machines. Time machines don't even travel that far back."

Love. It. Totally shipping this tag team.
