Demi LovatoDemi Lovato is pulling a J.Lo.

The singer-actress is rumored to be leaving her judging stint at The X Factor after having served on the panel for two seasons alongside the likes of Britney Spears, Kelly Rowland, and Paulina Rubio. A source close to the former Disney star claims that she wants to focus on her music career (sound familiar?), adding, "She had a great run and a good time."

The move to quit the reality show may be wise considering her upcoming tour schedule, which runs from February to March 2014.

When asked last year why she remained on the judging panel for another season (as fellow panelists Britney Spears and L.A. Reid exited), Demi stated that she wanted to expand her fan base: "When you have the opportunity to be in front of America every single week several times a week, that's a very incredible opportunity, not only because your fans get to know you better, but… I was on the Disney Channel forever, and was waiting for that right job that would help me cross over to the mainstream world... I was not only in front of my fans every week, but I was also in front of adults. I never used to get recognized by adults, and now when I'm at the airport or the grocery store, the guy behind the register will be like, 'I love you on X Factor!'"

This may not be the last of Demi's appearance on The X Factor, though, considering Jennifer Lopez returned to American Idol once she needed to garner herself more publicity (after she, too, claimed she left the show to work on her music career). The "Heart Attack" singer also at one point stated how she hates when judges are constantly replaced, perhaps hinting at a future return: "I don't like it when you attach yourself to a judge, and then the judges switch up and you're like, 'Oh no!'"

The X Factor will crown its winner in tomorrow night's episode on Fox.
