First Look: FOX Turns to Demi Lovato, Naya Rivera for “Glee” Hype

Poor ratings for last week’s “Glee” season premiere proved that the combined lure of new “Glee” episodes and the songs of The Beatles was insufficient for exciting Gleeks about the new season.

Even though that Beatles tribute continues with this week’s “Tina in the Sky With Diamonds,” FOX is instead turning to “X Factor” judge Demi Lovato’s debut on the show for promotional ammunition.

FOX this week released a teaser video (below) featuring an introductory interaction between Naya Rivera’s Santana and Lovato’s Dani (a coupling which has already earned the “Dantana” moniker). It also provided four new photos for the episode, all of which feature Lovato.

Lovato’s debut episode, the second of “Glee”‘s fifth season, premiere after Thursday’s “The X Factor.”
