Listen to Demi Lovato on iHeartRadio

(Yahoo!) - Britney Spears was a one-and-done judge last season on “The X Factor,” L.A. Reid jumped off the show’s sinking ship last year, and rumors are still running rampant that co-host-without-the-most Khloe Kardashian won’t be coming backfor Season 3. But at least there’s some stability in Simon Cowell’s topsy-turvy TV world, since it has just been confirmed that judge Demi Lovato will be returning for the show's third season, which begins airing on Fox this September.

"I couldn't be happier that Demi wants to come back this year," Simon said in a statement Thursday. "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!"

“I am so excited to return as a judge and mentor on 'The X Factor,'” said Demi. "Last season was an unbelievable experience and I really enjoyed developing personal relationships with the contestants and the panel. I look forward to taking my previous experience and applying it to make this season even better!"
