We have been crossing our fingers for confirmation that Demi Lovato would be taking a seat next to Britney Spears and L.A. Reid on the judges’ panel of The X Factor, and now TMZ says it’s really happening. Spears just announced her term as judge on Simon Cowell’s show last Wednesday, after months of rumors. Now, sources told the gossip site that Demi’s making an appearance with Britney at the Fox Upfront presentation for advertisers in New York today.
The outspoken “Skyscraper” star and her fellow Disney Channel alumna kind of make this the pop-starriest judging panel ever (no offense, JLo, Xtina, Paula and, er, Nicole). And at 19, Lovato is certainly the youngest judge we’ve seen on a major talent show in this country. Will Reid be able to hold his own against these ladies? We can hardly wait to see when The X Factor returns this fall. Stay tuned today for more news from the Upfronts!
