It looks like Demi Lovato is going back to her acting roots as the “Made In The U.S.A.” singer is set to join the cast of Glee for at least six episodes. The X-Factor judge will reportedly have a major season five role, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Demi will play Dani, a New York-based struggling artist, who becomes friends with William McKinley High alums Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) and Santana (Naya Rivera). She will also reportedly get the chance to show off her pipes (like she needs to — we know she already has an impressive set) during her time on the television musical. Her first episode will be the second of the season (also part two of their Beatles interview) which is set to air on October 3rd, according to Sugarscape.
This marks Demi’s return to acting since her Disney channel show Sonny With A Chance ended in January 2011 and we can’t wait to see her tear it up with Rachel Berry by her side.
