Demi Lovato to Join X-Factor

Demi Lovato, once known mostly for her acting career on Disney will now be known as one of the newest judges on Simon Cowell’s “X-Factor”. Demi is expected to join Britney Spears as the newcomers expected to replace Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger. These two are an interesting choice for the second season of X-Factor” for it seems like they are looking to gravitate towards a young audience by bringing in artists who have not only appealed to teens and young adults, but who have also had their personal problems documented in the public. The announcement is expected today at the Upfronts for Fox, and I’m curious to see how this plays out in the second season. It will make me tune in just to see if Demi and Britney can make this work on live tv.

Demi Lovato leaves SWAC

This is weird for me to speak of Demi Lovato in my first post not dedicated to sports but she has been through turmoils lately. Demi lovato has decided to leave her hit T.V show “Sonny With a Chance” to focus more on her music ambitions and most importantly being away from the Disney scene. Demi (as seen in the picture to the right) was the star and quite frankly best part about the show. SWAC returns for Season 3 in June and lets just say that it will lose ratings. Demi checked into rehab late last year and has dealt with both personal and emotional challenges. Disney is already coming off losing Miley Cyrus and “Hannah Montana” as well as upcoming series finales of Suite Life On Deck and Wizards of Waverly Place. The one thing that all these shows had in common, other than some attractive females, were that the audience felt like they grew up with the characters and the stories. Disney has a big test ahead of them. More to come in the future regarding The Disney Channel.
