E! News is confirming that Demi Lovato and Britney Spears will join Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid at the judge's table for the next season of THE X FACTOR. According to the report, both have offers in place and have agreed to the terms.
It has been rumored for months that Spears would join the singing competition, but sources could not confirm or deny the reports. In a recent interview, Simon Cowell revealed that he thought Spears would be a "fascinating" addition to the show. Rumors regarding Lovato's status have only surfaced this week. The pair will be filling the vacant judge's seats left by Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul, both fired from the show along with host Steve Jones after the first season.
Other celebrities who have been rumored to take a place on the show included Fergie, LeAnn Rimes and Stacy Keibler. GLEE's Darren Criss was reportedly offered the hosting position but turned it down.
THE X FACTOR USA is due to return to Fox later this year.
