Following weeks of speculation, Demi Lovato has officially signed on as a judge and mentor for the second season of the U.S. version of The X Factor! Demi will join judges Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid, and fellow newcomer Britney Spears. All the judges were on hand at Fox's upfronts event in New York City on Monday to break the news.
"I'm so thrilled to join this legendary group of judges on 'The X Factor'," Demi says. "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."
"I'm absolutely delighted Britney and Demi are joining us," Simon Cowell added. "Demi's had an amazing career in music, TV, and film for someone her age. She's young, confident, and enthusiastic. I think it's really important that she speaks to our younger audience."
