Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio Are Officially The New Judges For 'X Factor'

Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio will be joining Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato as judges on the X Factor.

"I am very excited to be reuniting with Simon Cowell and The X Factor family,” Rowland said in a statement. "It feels great to be able to take this journey here at home in the States!"

"I can't wait to find the next big music star here in America," Rubio said. "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!"

Cowell doesn't seem to mind being around three women.

"It's taken more than a decade, but I'm delighted to finally be on a panel with three girls (I think!)," Cowell said in a statement. "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."

Rowland and Rubio are replacing Britney Spears and L.A. Reid who left last season.
