19-year old Demi Lovato had been battling an eating disorder and been off the screens for a long time. So it's refreshing to know that she's coming back to TV, and not as a Disney star, but as an X-Factor judge! She will be joining Britney Spears and Simon Cowell on the panel of judges. According to MTV:
Spears and Lovato replace Paula Abdul and former Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger, who were fired in January after the first season of the heavily-hyped show failed to live up to Cowell's lofty expectations. Both Lovato and Spears are expected to be on hand on Monday when Fox announces the show's new lineup at its upfront presentations.
They're paying Britney $15million to do X-Factor, but Lovato's fee hasn't been stated. Both the girls were at some point under the employment of Disney and had major meltdowns:
Lovato and Spears, 30, are the kind of young singers that "X Factor" producers were seemingly looking for to give the show a more youthful appeal and share their experience with contestants. Both are former child stars who've struggled with personal issues and neither has experience appearing on live network television.
Do you think Demi Lovato would bring star quality alongside Britney?
