Rejoice Lovatics – Fox has announced Demi Lovato is to return as X Factor judge for the competition’s third season, alongside executive producer Simon Cowell!
“I am so excited to return as judge and mentor on The X Factor” Lovato said in a press release, adding “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 experience and applying it to make this season even better”.
The former Disney star joined the show in its second season, and was the youngest judge on the show, and subsequently mentored the Young Adults category – although she was the first mentor knocked out of last season’s competition.
In a statement, Cowell said about Demi’s return, “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.”
In a major overhaul for the third season, replacements have not yet been announced for departing judges Britney Spears and L.A. Reid, and co-hosts Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez have not been confirmed to return.
