Lovato, 20, is already set for another season as a judge on the Fox competition series “The X Factor,” which also gets under way this fall.
According to TVLine, the actress-singer “will play Dani, a NYC-based struggling artist friend of Rachel and Santana’s. She will also interact frequently with Adam Lambert’s incoming character, and the pair will have several musical numbers together.”
She’ll first be seen near the tail end of the new season’s second episode Oct. 3, TV Line said. That episode will be the second hour of the show’s two-part Beatles tribute that will begin a week earlier to kick off the season.
