NEW YORK (AP) -- Fox network says Demi Lovato is returning as a judge of "The X Factor."
The singer-songwriter will be back alongside series creator Simon Cowell when the singing competition begins its third season this fall.
Although calling Lovato "really, really annoying," Cowell said he enjoys working with her. She joined the panel of judges last year.
Thursday's announcement comes as the panel is being revamped. Britney Spears and record producer Antonio "L.A." Reid departed after Season 2.
