Khloe Kardashian, Demi Lovato And Britney Spears Tension At X Factor USA? Brian Friedman Says There Are 'No Dull Days'

10 December 2012

X Factor USA's choreographer Brian Friedman must know all the behind the scenes show goss, but although the star has said that there's 'never a dull day' he also added that it's definitely a 'high tension work environment.'

Showbiz blogger Perez Hilton recently reported that Britney Spears had apparently been 'shunning fellow judge Demi Lovato as well as Khloe Kardashian' and when asked about the alleged friction behind scenes, the dancer refused to give a specific comment but did say there was 'high tension', the National Ledger posts.

"It's definitely a high-tension work environment, that's for sure," he says, laughing.

"There's never a dull day, I can give you that much."

And he goes on to give us a bit more goss about what really goes on behind scenes, saying that it's not unusual for things to change last minute.

"There is a lot to take in, for sure, and that doesn't even include the personalities that are around a show like this. Everyone wants to win, so you see their attack mode come into play.

"You're dealing with egos. It's definitely a people position having to navigate through all the different personalities who are on the show. It's not easy at all times, but it helps me learn how to have patience," he says.

He continued, "The rehearsals we have with the contestants are straightforward and to the point. We get them the information they need and they've just got to learn to work at a pace that is required when they've got changes at the last minute. Sometimes they go on stage and they're being redirected as they're singing their song, where to go on stage," says Friedman.

Adding, "Excellence is highly, highly expected."
