Demi Lovato Returning To The X Factor USA
Star staying on judging panel despite her world tour this year...
The pop star's new deal was announced by TV company Fox, and show boss Simon Cowell was enthusiastic in his praise for his fellow judge.
"She's a superstar in her own right and was a fantastic mentor last year," he said.
"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."
And Demi released a statement herself saying that she was similarly excited to be sticking with the show.
"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."
SiCo and Demi are the two confirmed judges for this year's series. With Britney Spears and LA Reid not returning, there are still two empty seats.
