“Glee” Season 5 will welcome Demi Lovato (“The X Factor”) as a recurring character. But who will she play? Thanks to an interview with Naya Rivera, we now know that Lovato will be a love interest for Santana.
Rivera gave the interview on the red carpet at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. While the singer and actress mostly talked about her upcoming single release of “Sorry” and then “Glee” in general, she did spill some important news about Lovato on the show.
“She’s playing my love interest, so I’m very, very excited about that,” Rivera told MTV. “We get to sing a song together. It’s gonna be good, I’m excited to work with her. We’re bringing her to the dark side … She comes in in a Beatles episode, so [we’re singing] a Beatles song. I’m excited.”
Since the Beatles episodes of “Glee” are expected to be the first two of the new season, that means we will be meeting Lovato’s character earlier rather than later.

“Glee” Season 5 premieres Thursday, Sept. 26 at 9pm on FOX.
