Britney Spears hasn't been bringing in the killer ratings "The X Factor" was hoping for when they shelled out $15 million for her to appear on the show -- so will she be back next season?

While the show has been greenlit for another go-around, it was unclear whether the pop star would be returning with it.

But when Spears was asked about it on the red carpet last night at a party for the finalists, she had a very clear answer:

(If you can't hear the question, the very last one is "Do you think you'll be back for another season?")

Now ... can we talk about her appearance for a minute?

Spears kept it simple in a LDB, but it wasn't the most flattering fit for her killer bod. She also swept her new bangs to the side, which looked a bit disheveled.

And that gum! Come on, Britney!

She wasn't the only one at the event having styling issues though. Demi Lovato has gone back to brunette -- and was sporting some thick, penciled-in eyebrows to the event. She was sporting waaaay too much white powder on her face as well.
