DEMI LOVATO is coming back to judge another season of "X Factor". She says, quote, "I'm so excited to return . . . I look forward to taking my previous experience and applying it to make this season even better."
Auditions for Season Three are already underway. We still don't know who will replace departing judges BRITNEY SPEARS and L.A. REID . . . and it's unclear if MARIO LOPEZ and KHLOE KARDASHIAN will be back as the co-hosts.
(--Last month, there was speculation that Khloe is being dumped . . . and that Mario will host the next season alone. Season Three premieres this fall.)
