Lovatics have one more reason to celebrate today (besides the fact that “Heart Attack” is, like, really really good): The singer and Season 2′s The X Factor judgestress has announced that she’ll be returning to the talent competition for Season 3. (Britney Spears, not so much — but hey, life goes on.)
“I am so excited to return as a judge and mentor on The X Factor,” Lovato said in a statement. “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!”
For his part, Simon Cowell was also enthusiastic about Lovato’s return to the show: “I couldn’t be happier that Demi wants to come back this year,” he said. “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!”
In an official statement, Lovatics everywhere released a high-pitched squeal of excitement.
