R & B sensation Kelly Rowland and Latin pop star Paulina Rubio are set to join “The X Factor” this fall. Both Rowland and Rubio will replace Britney Spears and L.A. Reid alongside Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato for another season of the singing competition.
In a statement released Simon said, “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.”
This is not Kelly’s first stint as a judge she sat on the judging panel of Season Eight of the British version of X Factor. She expressed her delight to reporters at reuniting with Cowell and the X Factor family.
