Gearing up for its second season, Fox’s hit show “The X-Factor” held its Los Angeles, CA, premiere on Tuesday night (September 11).

All four of the show’s judges, Britney Spears, Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato and LA Reid, were on hand for the Grauman’s Chinese Theater event, greeting fans and posing for photographs before heading inside.

Aside from the star-studded judge’s table, several other entertainment industry heavyweights were on the VIP guest list for the night’s big event.

Among the esteemed invites were British boy band One Direction, actresses Zooey Deschanel and Mindy Kaling, singer Avril Lavigne, “Fashion Police” co-host Kelly Osbourne and “Glee” star Kevin McHale.

Returning to the show to shine in the spotlight once more are former season one winner Melanie Amaro and contestant Chris Rene, who made a splash last year with his hit "Young Homie."

Although the night will be filled with music and news about the new season, there will also be a Q & A session with the judges as well as the highly-anticipated announcement of the show’s new host(s).

Season 2 of “The X Factor” premieres tomorrow and Thursday on Fox at 8/7c.
