Teen songstress Demi Lovato has signed a deal to be a judge on the next season of “The X-Factor,” according to a report from TMZ.com.
TMZ reports that Lovato will be in New York City Monday to make the big announcement , along with fellow singing sensation Britney Spears.
The 19-year-old will sit alongside Simon Cowell, the show’s creator, and music executive L.A. Reid. Only in its second season, “X Factor” underwent a complete overhaul on the judging panel earlier this year. Spears and Lovato will replace former judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.
Fox studios did not confirm whether the news was true, but TMZ reports that Lovato and Spears are set to make an appearance at the network’s upfronts.
Spears reportedly inked $15M for her deal with the show, but it was not immediately clear how much Lovato would be paid.
