It's official: Britney Spears and Demi Lovato to judge 'X Factor'
Pop starlets join Simon Cowell for season two of Fox's music competition
One of the worst kept secrets of the 2012-13 TV season is no longer just a rumor: Fox has confirmed that Britney Spears and Demi Lovato will join the judging panel for season two of "The X Factor."
The official announcement was made at Fox's 2012 upfront presentation for advertisers. "It's going to be so much fun and so different from anything I've ever done. I'm ready to find the true star," Spears said during the presentation.
In a nod to her presumed role of bringing younger viewers to the show, Lovato added, "I'm totally stoked to be here ... I'm excited to represent my generation."

Before the announcement was made, Spears tweeted a photo of herself with Lovato, Cowell and L.A. Reid backstage at the event.
"X Factor" is open to "undiscovered talent 12 years old or over – both solo artists and vocal groups" who vie for a chance to win a $5 million recording contract with Syco/Sony Music. One of the show's twists is that contestants audition in front of the judges and a live audience simultaneously.
Season two of "The X Factor" will premiere this fall on Fox
