She’s expected to be introduced in her new role at the FOX network upfront presentation in New York on Monday, according to TMZ. A week and a half ago, we reported that Lovato was in deep negotiations to become the fourth judge.

It’s expected that Britney Spears will also be introduced as an incoming judge, joining Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid.
