Last week we learned that singer Demi Lovato was one of the front-runners for the 4th judging spot on the upcoming second season of The X Factor and today we hear from TMZ that she officially signed on as judge. Now, just becuse TMZ is “confirming” the news, we really won’t know for absolute sure until we hear it from Fox themselves. As you may recall, we saw video earlier of Britney Spears in NYC today which is almost certainly confirmation that she, too, has signed on to judge The X Factor as the 3rd judge. Click below for the reported deets about Demi’s X Factor signing.
Demi Lovato has officially signed her deal and will be a judge on the next season of “The X Factor” … TMZ has learned. According to our sources, Demi will be in NYC tomorrow for the FOX Up Fronts to announce her joining the show. Demi is scheduled to tour this summer, but our sources say her “X Factor” schedule shouldn’t interfere with her touring. Lovato should have company tomorrow … as TMZ previously reported, our sources say Britney Spears will be in NYC to announce she’s joining the show as well.
In the video of Britney posted earlier today, she was asked if she is excited to work with Demi on The X Factor and Brit Brit nodded in the affirmative. OMG. I am DY-ING over this! Honestly, I have no opinion about Demi Lovato … I don’t know her so I don’t really know what to think. You may recall that Miley Cyrus was also in the running for the 4th judge spot on The X Factor but my guess is that Demi signed on for much less money than Miley would’ve and if the rumors of Britney’s $15-16 million dollar contract are true, well, I can see how Fox might be interested in saving money wherever they can. I’m not sure when the X Factor announcement will be made today but I hope it’s sooner rather than later … the anticipation is KILLING ME right now :)
UPDATE: Billboard magazine is now reporting that the X Factor announcement may not come until tomorrow! ACK!
