Anyone we put through and who made it to boot camp had confidence — it really shows in their stage presence.
DL: Right now, I love colored denim shorts and vintage denim shorts with studs on them. 17: As a former judge, how does confidence play into a person's performance?

To be a great performer, you have to be able to captivate an audience and that takes confidence.
Even though you've said you and Niall Horan are friends, he called you his "dream girl." So, what's really going on between you guys?
Demi Lovato: I think Niall is super, super sweet and we've become good friends.
I get what it's like to be in the spotlight since I've grown up in it.
I want to introduce all the One Direction guys to the United States, but especially Niall because he hasn't been here that much.
I want to make sure he — or any of them really, I just don't know the other guys as well — has someone to hang out with in the States.
He's really sweet and it's always flattering when a guy says he has a crush on you.
