Simon Cowell Hopes Demi Lovato Will Return To The X Factor
The X Factor is going to go through plenty of changes before Season 3 airs. Britney Spears is already out, L.A. Reid needs to focus more on his business as a record producer, and Khloe Kardashian has been rumored to have been fired. According to Simon Cowell, though, the show would really, really like to keep Demi Lovato around—if she’s willing.
Cowell hung out with Ryan Seacrest on his radio show on Wednesday to talk about the upcoming season of Fox’s fall singing competition show. Cowell and Lovato had a pretty teasing-based relationship when they judged together during Season 2, but Cowell says he likes the 20-year-old singer and would like her to be part of the judges panel again next year.
"Nothing is official, but I liked having Demi on the show. She's fun to work with. I think we'd be crazy not to have her back."
While there will certainly be a couple of new judges to replace, hopefully Demi will be back to talk the talk on the judges panel. Unfortunately, Cowell isn’t saying who might take one of those coveted mentoring positions on The X Factor. However, Cowell and Seacrest did discuss the possibility of the American Idol judge signing on for a guest hosting position for one episode of the hit show. I would pay to see Mario Lopez and Seacrest host together, even if it’s only for one night.
Auditions started this week for Season 3 of The X Factor, which means those bigger castings should start getting announced sooner rather than later (hopefully). We’ll let you know if Demi decides to return, and more.
