Last week there was talk that Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio could be part of The X Factor panel.
Demi Lovato, a member of the jury from the previous season, will come back on the show.
“It’s taken more than a decade but I’m delighted to finally be on a panel with three girls (I think!),” Cowell said in a statement.
“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,” he added. “It just feels like the time to do something different.”
Auditions for the third season start on 15 June. Fox will broadcast The X Factor in the US this fall.
