It’s official, Kelly Rowland and Latin pop star Paulina Rubio will be joining The X Factor this fall. Rowland and Paulina will replace Britney Spears and L.A. Reid, sitting alongside Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato for another season of FOX’s singing competition show.
“It’s taken more than a decade but I’m delighted to finally be on a panel with three girls (I think!). Paulina and Kelly both have great taste and massive experience in the music industry and together with Demi, this is going to be a fun panel. It just feels like the time to do something different,” Cowell explained in a statement.
This isn’t Kelly’s first judging rodeo. The former Destiny’s Child singer judged Season Eight on the British version of The X Factor. “I am very excited to be reuniting with Simon Cowell and ‘The X Factor‘ family. It feels great to be able to take this journey here at home in the States,” Rowland shared in a statement.
