Britney Spears 'Definitely' Returning to 'The X Factor'

Britney Spears 'Definitely' Returning to 'The X Factor'

Baby, one more time? That's the message from Britney Spears, who told an interviewer at a red carpet event for "The X Factor" that she'll be returning to the show next season.

"Yes, I definitely will," she said.

Spears, a new judge this season along with Demi Lovato, has been an opinionated, popular presence on the reality competition, earning praise from Simon Cowell himself. Unlike the Nicki- Mariah face-off that's made "American Idol" headlines, "X Factor" seems to have avoided internal squabbles this year.

"I'm actually very hopeful that 'X Factor' keeps the same panel going forward," fellow judge L.A. Reid told Billboard in October. "I think that we actually suffer a little but for not having that consistency in our panel."

The show's second season, airing now on Fox, continues to mix up its lineup, adding Khloe Kardashian Odom and Mario Lopez as its latest hosts. They made their show debut last week.
