Britney Spears isn’t returning to the judges table on The X Factor… But Demi Lovato might just be back next season.
The Fox reality singing competition’s executive producer Simon Cowell admitted to American Idol host and radio personality Ryan Seacrest that “we’d be crazy not to have her back” when discussing the 20-year-old part-Mexican singer/actress’ return to the show.
In an interview on Seacrest’s radio show, Cowell said that he “liked having Demi on the show” and that “she’s fun to work with.”
But Cowell did warn that “nothing is official” after talking about the “Heart Attack” singer’s possible return.
The third season of The X Factor is right around the corner, with the first round of auditions set to take place in Los Angeles on March 6.
So far, replacements haven’t been named for exiting judges L.A. Reid and Britney Spears, nor have co-hosts Mario Lopez or Khloe Kardashian been confirmed to return.
“We’re talking to people all the time and hopefully within a couple of weeks we might announce the first two,” said Cowell of the judges panel.
