Simon joked that, “It’s taken more than a decade, but I’m delighted to finally be on a panel with three girls (I think!).”
Kelly says she is excited to reunite with Simon after being a former judge on the X Factor in Britain, while Paulina, a former coach on Mexico’s version of The Voice, added she loves the X Factor and can’t wait to find the next music star in America.
Faith Hill was rumored to be on Simon Cowell’s short list to join the judging panel, according to the New York Daily News. But Faith was quick to deny the claim tweeting, “Heard I’m gonna be a judge on the X Factor? Flattered, but not true.”
The X Factor is scheduled to start filming auditions tomorrow.
The show returns on air this fall.
