Pop singer Demi Lovato has signed on as a judge for the next season of The X Factor, TMZ reports. Lovato's signing will be officially announced today at Fox's upfront presentation in New York City, where Britney Spears is also expected to be revealed as a new judge on the show.

Lovato, 19, is best known as the star of the Disney Channel sitcom Sonny with a Chance and for her teen pop hits "Here We Go Again" and "Get Back." The singer has been mounting a comeback since 2010, when she entered rehab for an eating disorder and self-harming. Lovato is set to tour this summer, but X Factor's shooting schedule will reportedly not interfere with her gigs.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
