Demi will perform at KISS 108’s Kiss Concert 2013 In Mansfield, MA on May 18 along with Ariana Grande, Emblem 3, Chery Lloyd and Olly Murs. Demi Lovato will be returning to the panel for Season 3 in the fall. Simon:
‘I couldn’t be happier that Demi wants to come back this year. 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!’
Despite the bounce expected from the addition of Spears and Lovato to the judges’ panel for Season 2, X-Factor found itself battered in the ratings. The Season 2 finale on December 20, 2012 was down nearly 20% from the Season 1 ender on December 22, 2011.
