There are so many reasons we can't wait for Glee to return on September 26, but at the top of that list is the fact that Demi Lovato will be guest starring on the show this season. (We're an office full of Gleeks and Lovatics, so it's like a dream come true!) In fact, we think there might only be one person who is more excited than we are about it: Demi herself!
I can't believe I'm going back to acting but the best part about it is that I get to act/sing with some of my really great friends.. 😊💗— demetria lovato (@ddlovato) August 26, 2013

The "Heart Attack" singer will play Dani, a new love interest for Naya Rivera's character, Santana, and a waitress at the diner where she and Rachel are both working this season.
"What I want people to take away from this isn't, 'Oh my god, Demi is kissing a girl, like this is crazy' or whatever; I want people to take from it [that] this is actually an incredible step in our generation today where I'm able to play a young lesbian on prime time TV," she has said of the role. "It's becoming the norm and I'm honored to be able to be hopefully inspiring people with my character to be who they are and not be afraid or ashamed."
Earlier this week we heard an amazing snippet of Demi and Naya's cover of the Beatles' hit "Here Comes The Sun," which made us really excited for future duets between the two girls. Today we have some awesome promo pics from the second episode of Season 5, which will introduce Demi's character to the show.
