With a two-hour time slot and only one big announcement to make, filling time was a necessity during The X-Factor finale on Thursday.
“All season long, Simon [Cowell] has complained about Demi [Lovato] being annoying,” host Mario Lopez announced. “Maybe it has something to do with what she’s been drinking at the judge’s desk. Let’s take a look.”
A pre-packaged clip showed the singer in several different scenes, sipping on a green substance referred to as “annoying juice.” The problem is that Demi’s been open about her alcohol and substance abuse in the past, so she didn’t exactly find the joke very funny.
“That was f—ed up,” she was seen mouthing, as the package played.
Afterward, she addressed the video. “Well, I think that it’s very, very clear, since I don’t drink anymore, ‘annoying juice’ has become my new drink,” she said, forcing a smile. “I love it because I get to annoy Simon with it.”
The 21-year-old announced earlier this week that she won’t be returning to the X-Factor for Season 4.
