Season 2 of X Factor USA kicked off last night - with the first episode being aired stateside. Unfortunately for us and our fellow Brits, we could do nothing but grit our teeth and watch Louis Tomlinson tweet all about it.

LUCKILY we won't have to wait very long until we can watch Demi Lovato, Britney Spears Simon Cowell and LA Reid in action for ourselves though - because ITV2 has just confirmed the date the new series will air. Hooray!

Yes, season 2 of The X Factor USA will begin on Thursday September 27th at 8pm. What a treat for a school night.

If you're still thinking 'Agh, I cannae wait that long Sugarscape, I want to watch it NOW!' - well, there's not really much we can do.

Apart from suggest you watch this clip of Simon grilling Demi over her relationship with Niall Horan, of course.

It's a goodie.

Whaddya think (British) Scapers? Will you be tuning in on the 27th?
