It’s on! Britney Spears and Demi Lovato appeared at the first round of X Factor auditions in Austin, Texas, Thursday — and both definitely brought it.

Spears stepped out in a plunging hot pink mini by Brian Lichtenberg, paired with basic black pumps, minimal makeup and beachy waves.

Lovato chose a similarly bright color, covering her patterned neon green dress with a black leather jacket and finishing the look with peep-toes and a high blonde bun.

Both ladies seemed to enjoy their first day on the job, with Spears Tweeting, “Loving @TheXFactorUSA auditions so far…” and Lovato saying it was “such an amazing day…can’t wait to do it again!!!”

Spears and Lovato were announced as the new X Factor judges just two weeks ago; they join existing judges Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid. Auditions in Austin continue through Friday; the foursome will resurface in Kansas City, Mo., on June 8 and 9. Tell us: What do you think of the ladies’ first looks?
