For months, the world (or at least TV fans) has waited with baited breath to see who would eventually occupy Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger's vacant seats on The X Factor's judging panel. And today, at Fox's Upfronts presentation, we finally got some answers. The weeks-long rumors are true: Current teen idol Demi Lovato and former teen idol Britney Spears have officially joined the Fox hit reality series, joining Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid.
On his Twitter, Simon Cowell posted a picture of Spears and Lovato standing alongside him and Reid at Fox's upfront presentation in New York City Monday, along with the tweet: "Can't believe it's finally happened." Fox confirmed the news at the upfront shortly thereafter. (In early April, it was rumored Spears bagged $15 million for the deal.)
