Cory Monteith may be out of the picture, but filming for Glee continues, and with it, efforts to recruit new stars for the show. Rumor has it, X Factor judge Demi Lovato just might join the cast for its upcoming fifth season!
Reality stars frequently show up on Glee. We’ve already seen American Idol alum Jessica Sanchez, not to mention a whole host of fresh-faced young stars from The Glee Project. But this time, it looks like the show is taking on a well-established celeb, otherwise known as Demi Lovato! Apparently, Demi is set to play Dani, one of Santana Lopez and Rachel Berry’s New York friends.
As if Demi Lovato’s presence isn’t enough to excite Gleeks, she’s just one of the reality stars slated to take part in season five. Also joining the cast? American Idol alum Adam Lambert. And fans can look forward to plenty of on-screen interactions between Demi and Adam, perhaps some of the steamy kind.
Demi Lovato’s Glee debut will arrive sooner than you think — she’ll be part of the season’s second episode. The new season will open on September 26th with a two-part Beatles tribute, which Demi will join in its second half. Following the two Beatles episodes is another tribute — this time aimed at honoring Cory Monteith in the wake of his tragic overdose. We’re sure this will be a difficult episode for fans, but if there’s anyone who can help us make it through, it’s Demi Lovato!
