‘Heart Attack’ singer and The X Factor Judge, Demi Lovato, has signed on for a third season of the Fox singing competition with Simon Cowell. The news of her return should make fans happy, as the show is out two judges for season three. Both LA Reid and Britney Spears will not be returning.

“I couldn’t be happier that Demi wants to come back this year,” said Simon Cowell of the former Disney star’s return. “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!”

“I am so excited to return as a judge and mentor on THE X FACTOR,” added Lovato. “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!”

‘The X Factor’ plans to hold open auditions this coming month in New Orleans on April 14 and will then travel to Long Island, NY, on April 25, followed by a trip to Denver, CO, on May 14.
