The i's may not be dotted, nor the t's crossed, but a new report claims Demi Lovato is pretty much confirmed as a judge on season two of The X Factor.

With names being tossed about haphazardly over the past few months, sources claimed this week that the fourth panel spot - alongside Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid and $15 million-per-year newbie Britney Spears - had come down to Lovato and Miley Cyrus.

And, if the following E! News item is to be believed, Demi has beat out her fellow young star:

No contract has been signed still, apparently, but that doesn't mean we can't express our take on the possibility: it will be great for ratings, bad for credibility.

The judges are meant to guide the contestants, after all, right? Offer them advice based on their years in the industry? Seems difficult for a 19-year old to do.

What is your opinion? Would Lovato make a strong X Factor judge?

With Britney Spears already on board, might Simon Cowell be giving up all notions of The X Factor as a singing competition?

It's hard not to think the producer is simply aiming to rake in the ratings, considering the latest name reportedly on the table to join season two as a judge: Miley Cyrus.

Simply put, “there have been talks with Miley,” an X Factor insider tells Celebuzz, a rumor backed up by E! News.

Both outlets also report that Fergie, Avril Lavigne and Demi Lovato are in the running to join Cowell, Spears and L.A. Reid on the panel. A decision will need to come within a month or so, in order for auditions to begin and The X Factor to premiere season two in September.

What do you think of Miley Cyrus as a judge? Would she be a good choice?

 

UPDATE: The Hollywood Reporter now claims Lovato is the one to beat and is in "final negotiations" for the gig.

An attempt at a kind gesture turned very scary for Demi Lovato in Paraguay last night, as the singer was forced to leave the stage and put a halt to her concert when fans leaped up and tried to embrace her.

The 19-year old initially tried to give fans a better seat, only for attendees to get carried away and actually jump on stage. Security intervened. Demi walked away. Order was restored and she eventually returned to finish the set.

But it's easy to imagine just how frightening it can be to see an influx of hyper strangers heading your way. Watch it all unfold now:

A couple weeks ago on Twitter, Demi Lovato bared her true face.

Now, in the pages of British magazine Fabulous, the singer is baring her soul.

In one of her more honest interviews to date, the 19-year old goes into detail about her pre-rehab drug use, telling the publication:

"I was depressed. I would come offstage in front of 18,000 people and suddenly be alone in a hotel room. I'd come crashing down and would try to find a way to re-create that feeling, to stay 'up.'"

And you might be shocked to learn who fueled Demi's habit.

"Promoters gave me drugs and alcohol in restaurants or clubs," she said. "They wanted me to come back so I would be seen there. They were basically kissing my ass."

Lovato, of course, entered a treatment facility in November 2010 and has talked since about her emotional and physical issues, citing an eating disorder and bi-polarity. But this is the first time she's really discussed any kind of substance abuse.

"Being a celebrity can be dangerous. Nobody says 'no'. That's why so many end up overdosing and dying. It could definitely have happened to me."

Instead, thank God, Demi has bounced back and her career is going strong. She performed last month on American Idol.

Demi Lovato showed fans in Peru a very different side of herself last night.

No, not the side without makeup. All Twitter followers were treated to that glimpse a few days ago.

Instead, went all hip hop on these South American attendees, briefly covering the Kanye West/Jay-Z track "Niggas in Paris" off their collaborative album, "Watch the Throne." Even Demi couldn't take herself totally seriously while spewing out the rhymes, but she performed the track better than we could have!

She's preached it ever since her trip to rehab: it's what inside that counts. It's the real you that matters.

And now Demi Lovato has put that philosophy into practice, posting a photo on Twitter of herself makeup-free, a rarity for celebrities. (Lady Gaga went a similar route late last month). Take a look for yourself:

"I'm not always perfectly happy with my body," Lovato said in a recent interview with WE7. "After all, I'm a woman and what woman is? But I make sure I tell myself that I'm beautiful and I tell myself daily affirmations, so I would recommend that to younger girls - and guys."

What do you think of Demi's all natural look? Weigh in now and don't forget to watch her official music video for "Give Your Heart a Break."

No more music video teases from Demi Lovato. The young superstar has come out with the real, full thing.

The 19-year is actually make-up free in the following video for "Give Your Heart a Break," which is a track included on her hit album, "Unbroken." How come?

"I want to put it out there and show that women can be independent on their own," she tells E! News, which debuted the video. "I think that's the best lesson that I've learned - to love myself before any other person."

Demi Lovato is about to get her flirt on.

The young singer will release the full-length, official video for her latest track, "Give Your Heart A Break," on April 2. But she's offered fans a very quick peek at it online and it looks like Demi will be played a bit of sexy hide-and-seek with a mystery man during the shoot.

“‘Give Your Heart a Break’ isn’t a song about having a broken heart,” Lovato said last week. “This is a song about faith, it’s a song about fighting for the one you love.”

We can't wait to watch the complete version. For now, though, enjoy what you can and then watch Demi take this same single to the American Idol stage.

The teen took to the stage that has made so many people famous and belted out a version of her latest track, "Give Your Heart a Break." What did you think of the version? Would Demi have a shot as an actual Idol contestant? Watch and listen for yourself now:
