Demi Lovato Returning to 'X Factor' Season Three!

Demi Lovato will be returning as a judge and mentor for the upcoming season of The X-Factor, Deadline confirms!

“I am so excited to return as a judge and mentor on The X Factor,” Demi said in a statement. “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 previous experience and applying it to make this season even better.”

Auditions have already begun for season three of the show, but replacements have not been announced for L.A. Reid and Britney Spears, and co-hosts Mario Lopez and Khloe Kardashian have yet to confirm a return.

“I couldn’t be happier that Demi wants to come back this year,” executive producer Simon Cowell added. “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!”

ARE YOU EXCITED that Demi Lovato is returning to The X Factor???

    I like her but she is a bad judge!

  • Guy

    I’m happy for her, I’ve been a fan for years now. I didn’t like the choices she made last season so I’m hoping that she will come back with the killer instinct and the drive to win X Factor season 3! Go Demi!

    Also, maybe Simon should find people who might actually stay for more than a season because when you watched American Idol (with Simon, Paula, and Randy) you knew what you were getting now who knows, you could be auditioning for Simon, Demi, Charlie Sheen, and Hello Kitty for all you know. Find someone with commitment and who actually has TALENT not just popularity. Not trying to smack on current judges though…anyway that’s it.

  • she’s cheap

    they have to keep costs down this season and she only costs 1 million for the entire season

  • Asha

    I have never understood this, but how do they have auditions with only two confirmed judges??? Maybe I am missing something.

  • pattilee


  • sam

    Meh… they should really pick better judges… but then the format of the show sucks so maybe they should just cancel it.

  • Jake

    YES!!! She’s beatiful and amazing!!!

  • Stephanie

    No! She was downright annoying last year, and made poor choices. I agree she is cheap and therefore a good reason to bring her back. Bring back Paula Abdul, someone who actually has judging experience.

  • Lori

    Yay I’m so happy she’s coming back. The thing I love about Demi is she’s not afraid to admit she made mistakes, which is why I’m glad Simon let her come back. I think she’ll be even better this year, she was the best judge last year, and I think she will be a better mentor this year because last year she didn’t know what to do.

  • amika

    @Jim: I agree! She’s a terrible judge and only tries to mold people into pop artists that are popular right now

  • Anette
