Could Simon Cowell have intimated fellow X Factor judge Demi Lovato? Dems took to the X Factor stage during the Thanksgiving night one-hour elimination episode and although we thought she rocked her performance of “Neon Lights,” the pop diva begs to differ.

“So I watched my XF performance back and kinda sorta HATED it.. BUT I PROMISE I'm gonna make it up with something special really soon,” she tweeted December 2, several days after her performance.

We’re not really sure what Dems hated about her number. It had all hot shirtless men, air jets, and professional grade strutting we could ask for. Plus, the 21-year-old star looked fierce with her killer leather jacket, tight black pants, and, of course, her electric blue hair.

If she did seem a little pitchy in places that was probably just due to a heavy Thanksgiving dinner. She did already say she wasn’t 100 percent happy with working on a national holiday. Who would be when you have to perform after all that tryptophan?

Then again, Demi is seen taking out her ear pieces about halfway through the performance so maybe any less than stellar notes were due to a tech glitch? It wouldn’t be the first X Factor has experienced this season

As for the episode itself, it wasn’t all that stellar. Ratings hit a series low despite two A-list performances (the other by Canadian crooner Michael Bublé). Demi’s taking any bad news from the night in stride, though.

“SO motivated to work hard and to KILL IT for tour!!!! LET'S DO THIS!! #NEONLIGHTS,” she writes to which we add #alreadyamazing and #nutsforneon.
