FOX/Twitter (@ddlovato)The rumors are true — Demi Lovato will, in fact, be joining the Season 5 cast of Glee. And in even more exciting news, her character will be linking up with Santana!

Naya Rivera's alter ego, who's been without a love interest since Brittany (played by Heather Morris), gets buddy-buddy with D.Lo's in New York. The 26-year-old actress revealed at the 2013 MTV VMAs, "[Demi's] playing my love interest, so I'm very very excited about it. We get to sing a song together. I'm excited to work with her." She adds, "We're bringing her to the dark side."

Demi recently came off a trip to Africa, where she celebrated her 21st birthday, but now she's ready to get to work on the FOX dramedy. She tweets,
