And the new judges for The X Factor are ….
(Drum roll please)
Latin singer Paulina Rubio and Destiny Child’s Kelly Rowland.
RumorFix has confirmed the two ladies are joining Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell in the search to find America’s best singer and award him or her with a record contract and a music video.
International pop star Paulina Robio said, “I love The X Factor! I can’t wait to find the next big music star here in America. I’m so thrilled to be part of the show as a judge. Simon, be careful what you wish for, let’s see if you are ready to handle me, empieza la fiesta amigo!”
Kelly, who served as a judge for the UK version of The X Factor, says, “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!”
Simon, who is also executive producer of the show, says, “This is going to be a fun panel. It just feels like the time to do something different.”
And as we reported earlier, Mario Lopez returns as sole host of the show.
