Britney Spears is "definitely" returning to The X Factor next season, the singer told interviewers at a red carpet event for the show. After talking about her empathy for the constants – "They're like my little children," Spears said – and how much fun she has as a judge on the singing competition, the singer was asked if she would be back next season. "Yes, I definitely will," Spears replied.
She and Demi Lovato joined creator Simon Cowell and music mogul L.A. Reid at the judges' table this year. Reid told Billboard last month that he wouldn't make any changes to the lineup. "I'm actually very hopeful that 'X Factor' keeps the same panel going forward," he said. "I think that we actually suffer a little but for not having that consistency in our panel."
