Demi Lovato: 'X Factor' Judge?

Demi Lovato is reportedly closing a deal to join the judges’ table for the next season of The X Factor.

“Although the deal is not yet done and could fall apart, sources say Lovato‘s team is in final negotiations for the job,” according to THR.

The trade adds that show executives, including creator Simon Cowell, hope the 19-year-old entertainer “will bring [in] a younger audience.”

Britney Spears is also rumored to be one of the new judges who’ll replace season 1′s Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul.

    This is a joke right? I figured you’d require at least some sort of mainstream success/acknowledgement to qualify as a judge. Half of the people probably don’t even know who he is.

    The contestants that will be stuck with her as a mentor will probably be like, “Who’s this little Disney chick trying to lecture me?!”

    Yes! She is a very talented singer/songwriter unlike britney spears who does not write, dance, sing live, etc. Britney is a manufactured brand.

    I think she could do well, I really dont think age is a problem anymore and her musical tastes are very varied etc and she may not have selling power but she has a dedicated fanbase who would watch anything she’s on. Her personality is intriguing aswell so I wouldnt mind tbh. Plus she can actually sing

    I’m finding this story hard to believe. I adore Demi and all that …but I’m sure she has better things to be doing.

    She’s already trying to do reality show. Her career hasn’t really started yet and she ready to kill it by doing this with no grammys etc. She has a mickey mouse voice when she speaks her and Birt doing a show together doesn’t sound fun at all.Sounds like a bore.Oh Brit wish u never signed for factor because ur judges look to suck.I thought Simon said they had to have the xfactor and this girl doesn’t at all.

    She’s in no position to be judging anyone else

    Christ, no wonder these reality competitions suck. Awful judges judging awful singers singing awful songs and/or ruining good songs.

    So her single going platinum is not considered main stream success or the fact that she has a single that’s currently in popular rotation within the radio stations? Also last I checked this person isn’t a he. Demi lovato is a she. If you are going to give yo u two cents on your inaccurate assumption on what mainstream success, at least get her gender right. You my friend are a text book example of an invalid.

    As far as the contestants go, I think it’s safe to say that she has a bit more experience than the no names on this show. Having said that this was an old rumor that was squashed years ago.

    She has an amazing voice, but I don’t think she should be a mentor/judge, she’s a little young and doesn’t have a lot of experience in the business…yet. Don’t get me wrong, I love Demi, but she is dealing with all her personal problems at the moment, is she really the right person to be mentoring contestants whilst making herself better. It might be too much pressure for her.

    @cindy: Cindy you must be an invalid of sorts if you think reality tv kills your career. I guess you never heard of people like Kelly clarkson right? Who started on a reality show and is only one of the more popular singers in America? Also I like you equate Grammys to success. You ever heard of the name Selena Gomez? Yeah she doesn’t have a Grammy and she’s a pretty successful singer. Oh yeah what about Justin bieber? You ever heard of him? He doesn’t have a Grammy? Not the smartest jj poster in the world are you? Let’s not forget groups like lmfao as well. Can’t Demi detractors be a little smarter than this tool?

    @James Francos #1 fan: And you’re in no position to be breathing fresh air to support a hack actor like James Franco. You might as well throw Hayden Christiansen into the mix. By all means feel free to kill yourself with your stupidity.

    Having said that I don’t think she would make the best judge. At least not right now in her career. Maybe after a few. Years of experience? Sure. Right now she should focus on her singing.

    @mmbop: Oh and let’s not forget Jennifer Lopez who still has a relatively successful career as a singer and a judge along with a reality tv show with her ex husband. Oh and then ther is pdiddy who has a career as well and had his own reality tv show. You honestly think reality tv ends careers? Your public education is starting to show.

    Ego Says:

    @mmbop: Did I forget Adam lavigne and Christina aguilera on the voice? You know that reality show they are on as well as having a number one single? You probably fell asleep through that news. How does it feel to be an invalid?

    Ego Says:

    @Rizle: She’s obviously somebody to you and 6 millions plus people on twitter and face book. If she was a nobody you wouldn’t be posting about her on a public forum. Grade school little kid. Invest :)
