Who run the world? Girls. And they'll likely be running X Factor for Season 3 as well.
Destiny's Child singer Kelly Rowland is near a deal to join the singing competition show as a judge, EW reports. The judges' panel will likely consist of executive producer Simon Cowell, returning judge Demi Lovato, Rowland and one other female judge (rumors are floating that Latina singer/actress Paulina Rubio is in talks to sit in the fourth chair on the panel). Hollywood.com reached out for comment but did not hear back in time for publication.
Grammy-winning Rowland would fit right in on the judges panel, having extensive singing experience as a founding member of Destiny's Child, as well as serving as a judge on the eighth season of the UK version of X Factor.
Let's hope Rowland and Fox near a deal soon, since X Factor starts production on Season 3 this Tuesday. Talk about under the wire!
