Demetria Devonne Lovato (born August 20, 1992) is an American singer-songwriter and actress who
was a judge on X Factor USA from 2012-2013. She first gained notice after appearing in the Camp Rock movies opposite the Jonas Brothers as well as her own Disney show Sonny with A Chance.

Lovato announced on December 18, 2013 that she would not be returning to the show.
In addition to her work on the show, Lovato recently released her latest single, "Heart Attack", on February 25, 2013. The song, which became a top 10 hit, is from her fourth album, Demi, which was released on May 14, 2013. She hit the road for the Neon Lights Tour on February 9, 2014 in Vancouver, Canada. Fifth Harmony, British singer Cher Lloyd, and the British girl group Little Mix got to open for her on the North American leg of the tour. She also returned to acting, having taken on a guest-starring role on the hit FOX show Glee.
American Idol rumors
When Lovato appeared on the April 16, 2014 episode of American Idol and gave a little feedback on some of the performances, it caused fans of hers to go crazy and even speculate on Twitter that she might wind up becoming a judge on the show if Jennifer Lopez decided to leave. She denied those rumors in an interview with Ryan Seacrest. She did, however, perform on the show's finale on May 21, 2014.
Demi World Tour
On May 29, 2014, Lovato announced on E! News that she will be hitting the road again for another tour called the Demi World Tour, which will kick off in Baltimore, Maryland on September 6, 2014.
- Although Demi has a massive fanbase, she was the first judge to lose all her acts in both seasons she appears in, showing that despite her talent, she was rather a weak mentor.
