An actress and singer with a history of personal struggles including rehab has signed a deal to serve as a judge on the next season of "The X Factor," joining singer Britney Spears on the talent competition, reports TMZ.com.
The new judge is Demi Lovato. Lovato checked into rehab in 2010 to deal with emotional and physical issues, as previously reported.
A star of Disney’s "Camp Rock" movies and the Disney Channel sitcom "Sonny with a Chance," Lovato has also released several albums, with "Don’t Forget" going gold.
Lovato is expected to attend the Fox upfront to announce her decision to join the show, the piece adds. Spears is also expected to attend and announce her part in the program. As we reported last week, Spear will get $15 million to join the singing competition’s judging panel for one season.
