Simon Cowell has admitted that it’s very likely Demi Lovato will return for a second season on The X Factor USA.
The pair had great on screen chemistry on the contest last year, and while Britney Spears and L.A Reid have both confirmed they won’t be returning to the judging panel, Cowell says it would be “crazy” not to have the Heart Attack singer back on the Show.
Asked by Ryan Seacrest if Lovato would be back for another season, Simon replied: “That would be a good guess. Nothing is official, but I liked having Demi on the show.
“She’s fun to work with,” he gushed over his co-star. “I think we’d be crazy not to have her back.”
But who would replace L.A Reid and Britney? Cowell says the new line-up “may be announced… within a couple of weeks.”
Going back to their days of working on American Idol together, Seacrest asked: “Would you allow me to guest-host one live episode of The X Factor? I kind of miss this.”
“Yes,” replied Simon, before joking that Ryan would have to agree to some terms, including “a minimum of three weeks’ rehearsal.”
Demi recently said she’d love for Lady Gaga to replace Britney on the panel next season.
