Fox previously announced that the X Factor judge would be joining the Fox show, but until now we didn't know in what role. Apparently, Lovato will be playing a struggling artist living in Manhattan who befriends Rachel (Lea Michele) and Santana (Rivera). Eventually, sparks will fly between her and Santana, who has long been established as a bisexual character.
The 21-year-old pop star tweeted her excitement about her role:
I can't believe I'm going back to acting but the best part about it is that I get to act/sing with some of my really great friends..
