Simon Cowell, the show's creator reacted to the news shortly after.

"I’m thrilled Mario is back for Season Three of The X Factor,” Simon said. “Hosting a live show and keeping the judges – especially Demi – in line, is not an easy job, but Mario is a pro and we are glad he’s coming back.”

Lopez was also happy to hear the news.

“I’m looking forward to returning to The X Factor team,” Lopez said in a statement. “We’re coming back stronger and better than ever and I'm excited to check out all the new talent.”
