Demi Lovato WILL return as judge on 'The X-Factor'
With all the judge shuffling and ratings bloodletting going on in primetime singing shows these days, it's nice to hear someone will be staying put. Demi Lovato is sticking around for season 3 of The X-Factor, Fox announced Thursday. It's not like she has a show waiting for her in Las Vegas.
“I couldn’t be happier that Demi wants to come back this year," Simon Cowell said in a statement, according to Deadline.com. "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!”
Britney Spears and L.A. Reid have both jumped ship on the S.S. Cowell, so naturally he's happy Demi is staying. he probably even got her at a discount rate, because last season's rating dropped 20 percent even with the addition of she and Spears. Going to rehab really hurts your market value.
