If you watched Wednesday (September 12) night's premiere, you're already away of the new look for "The X Factor."
You've seen the hostless backstage audition footage and the montages celebrating the surprisingly critical Britney Spears.
But few would question that Demi Lovato was the star of Wednesday's two-hour episode, particularly her sensitive treatment of bullied teen Jillian Jensen, an extended moment that produced tears aplenty. 
On Monday, I sat down with Lovato and returning judge L.A. Reid to discuss second season changes and the fresh feel to "X Factor."
Check out the interview (as well as my chat with Simon Cowell) and remember that "X Factor" is back on Wednesday night.
