The foregone conclusion is now an official reality: Demi Lovato will return as a judge on Season 3 of The X Factor.
Confirmed Fox and Simon Cowell today in a press release:
“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. I’m especially pleased she’s back, even during her world tour!”
The X Factor will look very different this fall, aside from Lovato and Cowell as panelists.
