Kelly Rowland is steadily gaining momentum! The singer has officially signed on as a judge on the new season of The X Factor. The show’s founder Simon Cowell will be surrounded by talented ladies on the panel—Kelly will be joined by returning judge Demi Lovato and international star Paulina Rubio. While the popularity of American Idol dwindles, Simon seems to have the right idea to revamp the 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.”
Catch the third season of The X Factor when the show premieres on FOX this fall. Until then, you can catch Kelly on tour with The Dream, and her upcoming album, Talk A Good Game is slated to drop on June 18.
