X Factor auditions are taking place in Oakland, CA this weekend. Simon Cowell is back and recovered from the bronchitis that kept him from last week’s Kansas City auditions.

“Unfortunately Britney & Demi are now known as the gruesome twosome,” tweeted Simon. “V happy to be back-Demi more annoying than ever, Britney has grown claws!”  Simon never changes.  Despite finding her annoying, Demi still seeks Simon’s approval, “Yay!! Simon approves of my pink hair!!”   Yes, Demi arrived at auditions, freshly streaked in pink.
