Demi Lovato Signs Up For 'Glee' S5: The Show Goes On Without Cory

Demi Lovato is set to take to the small screen from September, playing a singer in Fox's hit high school musical series, Glee. After months of sorrowful news surrounding the show after lead actor Cory Monteith was found dead at the age of 31 after a drug overdose and his girlfriend/co-star Lea Michele was too devastated to even do her own grocery shopping, we needed a little light at the end of the tunnel.

According to TVLine, Lovato will bring some needed sunshine to the cast, appearing on the show for "at least six episodes" and will be the first time she'll have appeared extensively in a TV series since she cut her teeth on the Disney Channel as a youngster on Sonny With A Chance. Demi's character will be called Dani and will feature as a struggling New York singer who becomes friends with Michele's Rachel and Naya Rivera's Santana.

Lovato's Dani will apparently have lots of screen time to share musical notes with Adam Lambert which should make some exciting, high-energy collaborations. Having signed a deal for six episodes, she will make her debut in the second half of Glee's tribute to The Beatles; set to air on 3rd October.

Cory Monteith's memorial episode will take place the week after Demi joins and the show's filming will reportedly take place around her existing commitments as an X Factor USA judge. After the news of Demi's arrival was announced, co-star Adam Lambert tweeted in excitement upon he news: "@ddlovato I just heard the news! Excited to sing w you girl!" The pop star will reportedly play the arch-nemesis of Kurt, actor Chris Colfer revealed to Hollywood Life earlier this month that the two characters would clash, explaining "Adam Lambert is joining the show, and he's going to play my nemesis. I always wanted to see Kurt be mean."
