Simon Cowell confirms Demi Lovato's 'X-Factor' exit: 'To avoid speculation'

Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato seemed to be the perfect mix for the judge's table on X Factor. As the reality show finale night on Thursday will reveal the winner of the show, there is already sad news coming before the winner is announced. Simon Cowell has confirmed that Demi Lovato won't return next season as a judge.

"To avoid speculation. Because of her tour next year it was unlikely she could do that and X factor," tweeted Simon Cowell from his official Twitter account. The star sounded sad to see Demi leave. "She and I have had our ups and downs but now consider her a true friend. The door will always be open. And thank you Demi."

Simon Cowell might be looking at letting go all the judges behind the table. With fans complaining how unimpressed the comments were from the other judges, most are surprised it is Demi Lovato that is leaving the show first. This is the second year that the turnover behind the judges table has clouded the competition. People really are more interested in the star leaving than who is expected to win, which shows just how lopsided the competition has become.
