by at . Comments

Britney Spears and Demi Lovato will join L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell as judges on The X Factor, Fox confirmed at its upfront presentation this afternoon.

Spears, one of the most successful and celebrated artists in pop music history, gives the show A-list star power as it gears up for its sophomore season.

Lovato is no slouch herself, having become an accomplished singer and actress with a devoted and engaged young fan base. Not bad for the age of 19.

“I'm absolutely delighted that Britney and Demi are joining us,” said Cowell, who removed Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger at the end of last season.

“Britney Spears remains one of the biggest stars in the world, she's talented, fascinating – and I believe she knows exactly how to spot The X Factor."

"Demi's had an amazing career in music, TV and film for someone her age. She's young, confident, and enthusiastic," he added of his other panelist.

"It's important that she speaks to our younger audience. The new panel will be dynamic and will work really well with the changes to the show.”

Spears joining The X Factor has basically been a done deal for weeks now, added,  “I couldn't be more excited to join The X Factor judging panel."

"I'm a huge fan of the show and now I get to be a part of the action. Simon and L.A. better watch out!” 

Lovato, who reportedly beat out Miley Cyrus for the final spot, said: “I'm so thrilled to join this legendary group of judges on The X Factor."

"To be able to spend each week with Simon, L.A. and Britney watching the best that America has to offer is truly a dream come true.”
