Demi Lovato returns to X Factor US

Over here, we don’t usually find out who is on the judging panel until the last minute, but the X Factor US team have already confirmed that Demi Lovato will be returning to the show.

That is a very odd move for Simon Cowell because he usually likes to keep everyone guessing until the last minute, including those whose jobs are at stake. He just doesn’t make a definite decision until he absolutely has to.

However, both Demi, 20, and Simon confirmed the news in separate statements.

Demi said: “I am so excited to return as a judge and mentor on The X Factor. 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.”

I find this a bit odd actually because Demi didn’t seem that up for another year when she finished the last season. She made it sound like it was a lot to deal with and she would rather concentrate on her music. I wonder what Simon did to twist her arm.

He said: “I couldn’t be happier that Demi wants to come back this year. 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!”

Demi is doing a tour of North and South America from June to September. Although the show isn’t televised until September, the auditions round begin around June, so she will have to fit these in around her dates which will be pretty stressful.

It is uncertain who else will join the panel. LA Reid has already said he doesn’t want to do anymore and we just don’t know about Britney Spears. I guess we will have to wait and see. At least the US guys know two people- in the UK, we know no-one!
