Washington: Demi Lovato has officially signed a deal to appear as a judge on the next season of ‘The X Factor’. The ‘Skyscraper’ star is set to be added to the panel - alongside Britney Spears, Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid - when the show returns in the Autumn.

The 19-year-old singer will be in the New York City on May 14 for the fox up fronts to announce her joining the show, sources told a website. Demi was heavily tipped to be joining the show, after Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul were axed after poor ratings on last year’s debut series.
