Kelly Rowland, Paulina Rubio joining Simon Cowell as newest 'X Factor' judges


Simon Cowell has added former Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland and Latin artist Paulina Rubio to the cast of his competition show The X Factor.

Rowland and Rubio will be on the show when it starts its third season on Fox this fall. They replace Britney Spears and record producer Antonio “L.A.” Reid.

It’s a reunion for Rowland and Cowell, although American audiences might not know that. She served as a judge for a season on the more successful British version of the music show.
