Mario Lopez will be returning as host for The X Factor's third season, Fox announced Monday.
"I'm thrilled Mario is back for Season Three of The X Factor," judge and executive producer Simon Cowell said in a statement.
Apparently not everyone from The X Factor is on the chopping block.
In an interview with former colleague and sparring partner Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, executive producer and judge Simon Cowell revealed his hopes for judge Demi Lovato. "Nothing is official but I liked having Demi on the show. She's fun to work with," Cowell said. "I think we'd be crazy not to have her back."

Mariah Carey. Nicki Minaj. Keith Urban. Shakira. Usher. In recent years, the revolving door at the judges' table on reality singing competitions like American Idol and The Voice has seen a lot of action. And The X Factor has been no exception, cleaning house following the first season by handing pink slips to judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger (who, in turn, replaced Cheryl Cole, who was ousted during the auditions) and hiring on Demi Lovato and Britney Spears in Season 2.
Now Simon Cowell and producers must return to the drawing board to find a replacement for L.A. Reid, who announced last week he will not return for the show's third season. So who should replace him?
