It’s official: The ‘Heart Attack’ singer is ‘so excited’ to remain seated on ‘The X Factor’ judges’ panel.
Britney Spears and L.A. Reid may have flown the coop, but Demi Lovato will still be a judge on The X Factor for its upcoming third season, FOX announced March 28. This makes Demi, 20, and Simon Cowell the only remaining judges, with two slots in need of filling.

“I am so excited to return as a judge and mentor on THE X FACTOR,” Demi said in a statement. “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!”
Simon Cowell Is ‘Pleased’ To Be Keeping Demi Lovato
Simon, 53, is also pumped to have Demi back.
“I couldn’t be happier that Demi wants to come back this year,” Simon added. “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!”
