Demi Lovato is the Front-runner for X Factor Judge But No Offer Has Been Made

Demi Lovato is the front-runner for the 4th seat on the "X Factor" judge's panel, but she hasn't gotten an offer yet ... sources connected with Fox Network tell TMZ.

We broke the story, producers are close to sealing a deal with Britney Spears to fill one of the 2 vacant chairs, but that deal is still in negotiations -- it is NOT closed.   We're told both sides expect to reach an agreement and if they do Britney will end up with $15 mil for the season.

Lovato certainly has a fiery personality -- as we reported, she once socked a female back-up dancer in the face during the Jonas Brothers tour.

The other people in contention for the 4th seat are Miley Cyrus, Avril Lavigne, LeAnn Rimes and Fergie. But there have been NO offers made to fill that seat.

why does everyone hate her? because she had an affair? so.....?

If anyone should get that seat it should be Avril but I'd watch for Demi because it would be a great career jump for her. Kudos to her team for not only getting her name in the ring but also getting the girl who's been in the industry the shortest amount of time to be the frontrunner

I was really hoping for Miley. I think it would have been good for her career, especially since she's getting back into music.

Fergie? lol no. wait let me stop, idc really. still not gonna watch unless they could get King Beyonce.

ikr i heard they offered her 100 mil to do it lolol
ashe_frost 2nd-May-2012 05:37 pm (UTC)
LBR.. She's not famous enough or successful enough to do this (completely underqualified as compared to the other candidates.. Even Miley). It's kind of shaky, but I think she might technically actually be qualified to audition on The Voice. (In five years or so, once her original hype has died down, which is sort of sad because out of the Disney three, she does have the voice.. But apparently not the X-factor, which is sort of the point.)

But she's talented and could be fun to watch, so if she wants to use this for exposure/to jump start her career.. Good for her. I like her, and it's better than a fauxmance with some guy in One Direction or something as means to catapult her to relevancy.

Lol it's not exactly a low budget show, they can afford pretty much any artist.

I really want this to happen! It would be so good for her career.
chriswrites99 2nd-May-2012 06:13 pm (UTC)
I hope Demi gets the job to. It would be a great career move.

lisaswondering 2nd-May-2012 06:05 pm (UTC)
im not even watching if leann rimes gets the gig
talklikelions 2nd-May-2012 06:09 pm (UTC)
LeAnn Rimes. What.
michaelscotch 2nd-May-2012 06:42 pm (UTC)
i know. is it 1996??
michaelscotch 2nd-May-2012 06:40 pm (UTC)
that's a cute picture of her! i really want to know where she gets her bras and what brand/style they are, they make her boobs look amazingggg. as a super petite girl i am jealoussss...32B please and thank you.

also i have never seen X factor, but i know its pretty popular so good for her!!
electricblues 2nd-May-2012 06:52 pm (UTC)
it'll be weird if she gets the gig - to me, the ONE thing keeping her from really making it big in the industry is her lack of an 'x factor'. she's got the voice, she's an attractive girl, but otherwise she's kind of lacking.

Good for demi it could really help her career. I don't really want Miley to get it lol
pyt0_0 2nd-May-2012 07:53 pm (UTC)
omg i would love to see fergie as a judge. i've warmed to the idea of miley, and even demi too. i usually don't watch these kind of shows for the judges though.
yeezy 2nd-May-2012 09:31 pm (UTC)
lol lbr here the other artists probably dont wanna do it or want more money than fox is willing to pay
cantfink 2nd-May-2012 09:36 pm (UTC)
No to LeAnn. She would teach the contestants how to ruin their career by being totally horrible at their PR. Anyone but LeAnn, please!!

skankattack 2nd-May-2012 09:40 pm (UTC)
Miley needs it more because she hasn't been in the public eye in a while, but I hope Demi gets it. This could be really good for her career.
whatthejonas 2nd-May-2012 09:41 pm (UTC)
I think Demi would be good..This would be a really good way to break the disney image.
lisaswondering 3rd-May-2012 07:09 am (UTC)
