Destiny’s Child veteran Kelly and sexy Latin singer Paulina are signing on to be new judges on the next ‘X Factor’ season, ‘The X Factor’ vets Emblem 3 confirmed to HollywoodLife.com first! Are YOU excited?
Now that Britney Spears and L.A. Reid are officially not returning to The X Factor, Simon Cowell has been on the hunt for two replacements to fill their spots — and according to past X Factor contestants Emblem 3, he’s finally found them! Kelly Rowland, 32, and Paulina Rubio, 41, are signing on for next season. Read on for all the details.
Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio Joining ‘X Factor’
Previously, Simon was interested in hiring unlikely candidates Reba McEntire and Jennifer Love Hewitt, but Kelly and Paulina are his final picks! Sources close to FOX told TMZ that the songstresses were in final negotiations to join returning judges Demi Lovato and Simon on season three. And on the blue carpet of the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, the guys of Emblem 3 confirmed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Kelly and Paulina were in fact heading to the judges’ table!
We’ll miss seeing Britney and L.A. on the hit series, but we think Kelly and Paulina will be perfect additions to The X Factor! Paulina is a Latin pop superstar who is sure to bring some extra spice to the set, and Destiny’s Child alum Kelly already has a lot of on-camera experience judging for the UK version of The X Factor. She’ll be so comfortable in the judge’s seat! Plus, now that Kelly is joining the show, could that mean a Beyoncé cameo? Fingers crossed!
Congrats on your new gigs, Kelly and Paulina! Are YOU excited to watch them on The X Factor, HollywoodLifers?
