at . Comments

Demi Lovato is settling in very nicely as a member of the Fox family.

Already on board as an X Factor judge for Season 3, the singer is nearing a deal to play a key role on Glee Season 5.

According to TV Line sources, Lovato will portray a struggling artist in New York City who befriends Rachel and Santana. Look for her to share many musical scenes with Adam Lambert, who is also set to recur on the comedy this fall.

Lovato will debut on the show's Beatles-themed October 3rd installment and appear in a minimum of six installments.

The role marks her first significant acting gig since Disney's Sonny with a Chance ended two years ago and means we'll be seeing A LOT of Lovato on Thursday nights, as X Factor results shows will lead into new Glee episodes.

Glee Quotes

I had sex with you because you got me drunk on wine coolers and I felt fat that day. But it was a mistake.

Quinn [to Puck]

We met right here. I took this man's hand and we ran down that hallway. Those of you who know me know I'm not in the habit of taking the hands of people I've never met before, but I think that my soul knew something that my body and my mind didn't know yet. It knew that our hands were meant to hold each other, fearlessly and forever. Which is why it's never really felt like I've been getting to know you. It's always felt like I was remembering you from something. As if in every lifetime that you and I have ever lived we've chosen to come back and find each other and fall in love all over again, over and over, for all eternity. And I just feel so lucky that I found you so soon in this lifetime because all I want to do, all I've ever wanted to do, is spend my life loving you. So, Kurt Hummel, my amazing friend, my one true love, will you marry me?
