Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio are confirmed to join the judging panel of The X Factor USA alongside Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato.

Fox finally announced the news of who would be replacing previous judges Britney Spears and L.A. Reid.

We may not know much Paulina Rubio, we can guess why Simon and Fox chose to get one of the most influential Latin American singers involved.

Plus she was a coach on Mexico's version of The Voice so she has some experience.

But seeing as Kelly Rowland already has plenty of experience on the X Factor from her stint over here in the UK, we think Kelly will be a great addition to the panel.

In a statement, Simon said,"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."

Kelly said, "I am very excited to be reuniting with Simon Cowell and The X Factor family.

"It feels great to be able to take this journey here at home in the States."

While Paulina added,"I love The X Factor! I can't wait to find the next big music star here in America. I'm so thrilled to be part of the show as a judge.

"Simon, be careful what you wish for. Let's see if you are ready to handle me. Empieza la fiesta, amigo!" ("The party's getting started, my friend!")

Ooo we like her already.

Mario Lopez will be returning to the show as host, after show bosses decided not to renew Khloe Kardashian's contract.

But we guess that ends all talk of Cherl Cole making a return to the show then...

What do you think of the panel?
