A source close to the situation explained:
X Factor’s judge panel is high in estrogen levels this season.
During the TCA press tour panel yesterday, Simon revealed:
"It's a girl's world in the music business, so many girls are doing so well in the charts, we thought the panel should reflect it.”
Meanwhile, Paulina added that she has a lot to offer contestants:
"I'm an artist that has been in the limelight for many, many years, and I'm going to transmit that knowledge.”
Yep, we’re totes ok with this decision.
Good one, Simon.
