Making their first appearances since "The X Factor" suddenly pulled the plug on the day's two live tapings, judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato were spotted arriving for the show's crowd-free filming in Miami Beach this afternoon (July 26).
Staying stone-faced as shutterbugs ran to her side, Demi - wearing a spike-detailed jean jacket and white dress - quickly made her way indoors without answering any questions about the ordeal.
In between taping, Miss Lovato made a lunch run while eating at Lincoln Mall's hot spot Sushi Samba. Despite causing quite a commotion among fellow diners, the newly blonde songstress didn't reveal any details about her gig.
Also staying mum about the production change, an all black-clad Miss Spears and her fiance, Jason Trawick, silently entered the set without interruption.
While there's still no word from "The X Factor" on why they decided to nix the live-audience auditions, fans are surely speaking out.
Angered at their dismissal, several of the show's planned attendees cried out on Twitter, pledging to boycott the program from here on out.
