Well, that was quick.

It hasn't even been a day since Demi Lovato announced her departure from “The X Factor” and Simon Cowell has already got her replacement lined up.

We spoke to Simon last night at “The X Factor” where he told Hollyscoop, “There is one person who I really want who I’ve been speaking to for about six months who has agreed to do it.”

Yes, you heard that right…Simon Cowell already has his new “X-Factor” judge locked down.

So…who is it?

“It’s a big deal for me,” said Simon, “But I obviously can't say who it is.”

It has to be someone who isn’t currently working on music, as that’s why Demi left the show.

She told us, “I’m so excited to move on and do my music. That’s essentially why I became a judge on this show, because I am a musician so I’m excited to just tour.”
