Demi Lovato is returning to the X Factor! On Thursday (March 28) FOX announced the Heart Attack singer will return to the show’s third season.
Demi said in a statement: “I am so excited to return as a judge and mentor on The X Factor. Last season was an unbelievable experience and I really enjoyed developing personal relationships with the contestants and the panel. I look forward to taking my previous experience and applying it to make this season even better!”
Simon Cowell – who will also return as a judge – said, “I couldn’t be happier that Demi wants to come back this year. She’s a superstar in her own right and was a fantastic mentor last year. Even though she can be really, really annoying — I truly enjoyed working with her and so did the artists.”
X Factor producers however have yet to announce replacements for Britney Spears and “L.A.” Reid. A source close to the show revealed, “There are going to be four judges.”
Auditions before the judges are expected to start in late May or early June. Congrats Demi!
