X Factor USA Season 3 Judges to be revealed on Monday, Kelly Rowland nearing deal!

Simon Cowell has confirmed that the new judges for The X Factor USA will be revealed on Monday (May 20).

The judges are to replace LA Reid and Britney Spears, both of whom quit the show at the end of season two.

Writing on Twitter, Cowell revealed that the X Factor USA auditions begin in Charleston on Tuesday (May 21), with the new panel being announced the previous day.

Kelly Rowland, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Cheryl Cole and Katy Perry are among the stars rumoured to be replacing Reid and Spears.

Demi Lovato and Cowell will be the only judges to return to the competition for the third season.

Fox’s The X Factor is looking to have plenty of girl power next fall. The judges panel will likely consist of executive producer Simon Cowell and three female judges.
One will be returning judge Demi Lovato, as the network previously announced. If all goes according to plan, another will be singer, dancer and Super Bowl halftime show-stopper Kelly Rowland. The Grammy-winning Destiny’s Child founding member has previously been floated as a potential judge in the press, but EW can exclusively report she’s firming up a deal to join the show. Rowland should feel quite comfortable at the judges table; she has extensive on-camera experience, from serving as a judge on the eighth season of the UK version of The X Factor to performing on Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance.
We’re not certain who will secure the third judge spot, though we’re hearing Latin singer-actress Paulina Rubio is in talks.
The deals will have to be completed soon — The X Factor starts production on season three on Tuesday. The new judges will replace season two panelists Britney Spears and L.A. Reid.
