Mariah Carey. Nicki Minaj. Keith Urban. Shakira. Usher. In recent years, the revolving door at the judges' table on reality singing competitions like American Idol and The Voice has seen a lot of action. And The X Factor has been no exception, cleaning house following the first season by handing pink slips to judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger (who, in turn, replaced Cheryl Cole, who was ousted during the auditions) and hiring on Demi Lovato and Britney Spears in Season 2.
Now Simon Cowell and producers must return to the drawing board to find a replacement for L.A. Reid, who announced last week he will not return for the show's third season. So who should replace him? We asked The X Factor's Reid, Cowell and co-host Mario Lopez that very question backstage after Thursday's finale...

Britney Spears and Demi Lovato will make their long-awaited X Factor debuts Wednesday (8/7c on Fox), but the two new pop princesses perched between Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid are hardly the only changes coming in Season 2.
"When you watch the first episode, you're going to be surprised at how different this show is," creator, executive producer and judge Cowell tells TVGuide.com. "This is very, very different to anything I've ever...
Empty pizza boxes and Pepsi cans litter the floor of Miami's Fillmore Theater as weary contestants struggle to keep their eyes open and voices on pitch. It's Day 3 of The X Factor's second-season boot camp — and it's also a reboot camp for the Fox reality competition, which struggled to find its voice after being imported from the U.K. last September.
A new panel of judges enters the theater and takes their seats: acerbic Brit and X Factor creator Simon Cowell, global pop superstar Britney Spears, former Disney star Demi Lovato and record exec L.A. Reid. Even with new table mates, Cowell is still the same old Simon. "Arguably one of the worst things I've ever heard," he tells a group of dejected boys after their performance. "Shambles.
