Demi Lovato

Front-runner for X Factor Judge

But No Offer ... Yet

Demi Lovato is the front-runner for the 4th seat on the "X Factor" judge's panel, but she hasn't gotten an offer yet ... sources connected with Fox Network tell TMZ.

We broke the story, producers are close to sealing a deal with Britney Spears to fill one of the 2 vacant chairs, but that deal is still in negotiations -- it is NOT closed. We're told both sides expect to reach an agreement and if they do Britney will end up with $15 mil for the season.

Lovato certainly has a fiery personality -- as we reported, she once socked a female back-up dancer in the face during the Jonas Brothers tour.

The other people in contention for the 4th seat are Miley Cyrus, Avril Lavigne, LeAnn Rimes and Fergie. But there have been NO offers made to fill that seat.

If Simon hires Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, or Demi Lovato as a judge on X-Factor, he should be prepared for a season failure. Simon is wrong in selecting by popularity. He should be thinking about who has the I.Q. level to respond intelligently and have a broad vocabulary. He should think of Cyndi Lauper, Debbie Gibson, Cher, Sheryl Crow, Gwen Stefani, Harry Conick, Jr., Neil Sedaka, Smokie Robinson, Trace Adkins, etc. Simon should pull from the retired, experienced singers who could judge fairly.

Why not go old school. What about Gladys Knight? or someone from that era who have real talent.

PUHHHLEEZ. As if this unstable GIRL would be appropriate! What's she gonna do...punch the contestants in the face cuz she gets mad at them! LeeAnn Rimes is the best choice considering she has been in the business longer than anytone else on the list!

Thank God Britney is still a shoe-in. Here's hoping in the hectic schedule they forget to give her a few meds and she flies off the wagon. Oh how I miss 2007.

If you're saying that Demi has no talent, think again. She wrote most of the songs on her hit album, and was touring for quite a while. Not to mention her incredible voice, that doesn't need autotone. Just stop, you look ignorant.
