Former Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland and Mexican singer Paulina Rubio are said to be the final negotiations to judge the upcoming third season of “The X Factor”. As far as we know, they are being lined up to sit next to Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell to judge the new season of the hit talent competition.
Sources connected to FOX tell TMZ the pair are in final negotiations to join the show … with only minor details left to be hammered out before they sign on.
We’re told the deals will be done in the next few days, possibly as early as tomorrow.
Rowland and Rubio would be replacing Britney Spears and L.A. Reid … and joining returning judges Demi Lovato and (of course) Simon Cowell.
A rep for Fox had no comment.
Are you a fan of Kelly and Paulina? Do you think they would make good judges and mentors on the show? Or is Simon trying to be too much like “The Voice” in hiring Paulina? Hit the comments and leave us your thoughts!
