The former American Idol judge heaped praise on Lovato.

“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!”, said fellow judge and X-Factor creator Simon Cowell in a statement Thursday.


Veteran judge LA Reid said last year that he was out too.

Despite the bounce expected from the addition of Spears and Lovato to the judges’ panel for Season 2, X-Factor had a fall in the ratings.

The Season 2 finale on December 20, 2012 was down nearly 20% from the Season 1 climax on December 22, 2011.
