Demi Lovato has officially confirmed reports stating that she is leaving The X Factor USA. Are you shocked? She has judged the talent alongside Simon Cowell for two seasons now, but the Disney starlet says that it is enough already.
On Wednesday evening she took to the red carpet on the show to confirm her plans to focus on her career as opposed to continue sitting in the judge’s chair. She revealed, “I started the show being a singer and a musician, and so I’m going to go back to that. It’s been really great but I’m so excited for 2014. I’m going to dedicate it completely and entirely to music, touring and making a new album.”
She said, “Being able to sit next to Kelly and Paulina and see them twice a week, and also helping mentor the contestants.”
The show’s creator, Simon Cowell added, “I always knew she wasn’t coming back because she’s touring, so I knew that.”
Have you liked Demi’s judging and mentoring abilities on the show these past two years? Or do you think that she is easily replaced as a seat warmer? Rumor has it that Simon is looking to snag Miley Cyrus to fill Demi’s spot on the popular talent competition. We’re guessing that if he is able to get Miley, he won’t be shelling out a mere million bucks for the privilege. What do you think?
