at .

Demi Lovato is settling in very nicely as a member of the Fox family.

Already on board as an X Factor judge for Season 3, the singer is nearing a deal to play a key role on Glee Season 5.

According to TV Line sources, Lovato will portray a struggling artist in New York City who befriends Rachel and Santana. Look for her to share many musical scenes with Adam Lambert, who is also set to recur on the comedy this fall.

Lovato will debut on the show's Beatles-themed October 3rd installment and appear in a minimum of six installments.

The role marks her first significant acting gig since Disney's Sonny with a Chance ended two years ago and means we'll be seeing A LOT of Lovato on Thursday nights, as X Factor results shows will lead into new Glee episodes.

Glee Quotes

Thank you so much, it really is a pleasure. While the boys chose a selection of songs that casts an eye inward on the irresponsible life choices and sexual hunger of today's modern teens we have chosen a selection of songs that speaks of the nation as a whole during these troubling times filled with economic uncertainty and unbridled social woes, because if there's two things America needs right now, that is sunshine and optimism! Also angels.

I'm like a lizard. I need something warm beneath me or else I can't digest my food.
