Demi Lovato is heading to Glee for Season 5.

The X Factor judge is close to finalizing a deal to join the Fox series for a "significant arc," TVLine reports. She'll play Dani, a struggling artist friend of Rachel (Lea Michele) and Santana's (Naya Rivera) in New York City, according to the report. Her character is set to be introduced in early October and will stick around for at least six episodes.

Lovato isn't the only big name to sign on to the series. Adam Lambert is also coming on board, and TVLine reports that the two singers will have "several musical numbers together."

Glee's Season 5 premiere airs Thursday, Sept. 26 at 9/8c. Do you think Lovato will be a good addition to the show?
