X Factor judge Demi Lovato is heading to Glee!
TV Line reports that the former Disney star is set to star in “at least six episodes” where she will play Dani opposite Lea Michelle. Dani is noted as a struggling artist from New York City.
TV Line notes that this is Lavota’s first recurring role since starring in Disney’s Sonny with a Chance. Her current gig on The X Factor is said not be an issue as Glee producers have no problem working around her schedule.
Also celebrating the news is former American Idol contestant and new Glee cast member Adam Lambert. Lambert took to Twitter to celebrate the news writing, “@ddlovato I just heard the news! Excited to sing w you girl!”
News of Lambert’s addition to the cast came last month after Glee creator Ryan Murphy confirmed his role via Twitter.
According to Just Jared, Lovato’s first episode will air Oct. 3 as part of the series’ Beatles tribute.
