Demi Lovato is closing a deal to join Britney Spears in the Judges’ seat for Season 2 of The X Factor!
There were two seats open after Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul left the show after season 1. Rumor has it Simon Cowell is particular about his judges (and why shouldn’t he be?), and wants a brunette for the panel, perhaps to go along with the now-blonde Spears?
It’s hard to say. Still, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the Lovato camp is in negotiations to have the 19-year-old star judge, in hopes that her youth appeal will be a pull for Cowell. A younger judge could bring in a younger audience to the show.
L.A. Reid, Epic Records Chair, is staying on from season 1.
