Singer Demi Lovato will return as a judge on TV contest “The X Factor” for a second year, broadcaster Fox announced on Thursday, but there was no word on two more open positions on the celebrity panel.
The 20-year-old former Disney Channel star will be back in her seat when the show returns in the fall of 2013 along with creator Simon Cowell.
“I couldn’t be happier that Demi wants to come back this year,” Cowell said in a statement.
“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.”
“X Factor” producers however have yet to announce replacements for departing judges Britney Spears and record producer Antonio “L.A.” Reid, who quit at the end of the show’s second season in December.
