Kelly Rowland's new role: Judging

Kelly Rowland certainly has a lot on her plate - her album, "Talk a Good Game," just dropped and she's busy working on a jewelry line. However, it seems she's ready to add one more job to her resume - judge on the American version of "X Factor." Rowland confirmed the news that she and fellow singer Paulina Rubio have signed on to judge the singing competition alongside Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato.

"I am very excited to be reuniting with Simon Cowell," Rowland said in a statement. "It feels great to be able to take this journey here at home in the States!"

Rowland made a brief appearance on the U.K. version of the show in 2011 before leaving, so she already has a feel for what judging is like. 

Cowell opened up about his excitement to finally work with three women on the show, telling The Hollywood Reporter how happy he is to welcome Rowland and Rubio to the show

"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," Cowell told the news outlet. 

Are you excited about the new judges on "X Factor"? Do you think Rowland will give good advice?
