New X Factor Judges’ Panel to be Announced
Frankly, we just couldn’t be more excited!
As we write, only two judges on Fox’s hit crooning talent show X Factor USA have been confirmed as returning to the panel for the hit program’s upcoming third season. They are Demi Levato, who will be returning for her second season on the panel, and Brit media and music mogul Simon Cowell.
Cowell himself tweeted about X Factor auditions beginning in Charleston this week, and the imminent announcement of a new judging and mentoring panel, adding: “This is going to be an interesting show!”
And there is mounting speculation that ex-Destiny Child member Kelly Rowland, 32, and Mexican superstar Paulina Rubio are the names in the frame to sign up for the season.
If either of these names is confirmed, it will make Cowell the only male judge this time around.
The vacancies follow the departures of Britney Spears and L.A. Reid last fall.
Rowland’s currency is already rising, whether she joins the show or not. A hotly anticipated new album, Talk a Good Game, is due out next month, and she put in a showstopping performance at last night’s 2013 Billboard Music Awards.
Ice and Dirty Laundry hitmaker Rowland was previously an X Factor USA judge in 2011.
