This is just so, SO EXCITING!
Although the only two folks confirmed to be returning to the X Factor judges panel for the reality competition's upcoming third season are Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato, it appears that this will all change on Monday afternoon - as that's when the two latest recruits will be announced!
Simon took to Twitter early this morning to reveal:
Apparently American Idol isn’t the only singing competition show that’s in for some changes.
Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell will be returning to US X Factor this fall with yet-to-be-named fellow judges. However, the show’s third season will also feature a “more relaxed energy.”
According to Demi, Simon is planning on keeping things a bit more playful. She revealed:
X Factor might be getting seriously bootylicious!!!
Rumor has it that Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio could be joining the X Factor judging panel!
The former Destiny's Child and Latin pop goddess are reportedly in final negotiations to join Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell on the wildly popular singing competition series.
And why not? Both are extremely qualified for the positions. Hell, our girl Kelly was spectacular judging on the UK panel! So why the hell not!
A source revealed:
And we thought she'd NEVER sit on that judges panel after all the dramz surrounding Simon Cowell and Dannii Minogue's sexual relationship…
But it seems we were wrong (and that Simon got his wish!) because Sharon Osbourne is reportedly returning to The X Factor UK as a replacement for Tulisa Contostavlos!
TV's Queen Mum will apparently get a cool $1.5 million for the gig, but one alleged insider reveals:
Nothing gets by Demi Lovato!
Even when Simon Cowell tries to hide who he really is, she can figure it out!
And it seems he's quite the complex character…simply hidden in black t-shirts.
Demi revealed to Company magazine the deep dark secret life of Simon as she said:
What’s this? Is Cheryl Cole actually returning to the US X Factor?! Turns out there is such thing as karma. HA!
The Girls Aloud singer has reportedly met with Simon Cowell on two occasions to talk over her potential judgeship on the singing competition show.
This is an innnnnneresting development considering Cheryl was fired from the show prior to its first season and replaced by Nicole Scherzinger!
A source revealed:
“Simon would love to have Cheryl back. They're chatting more and more at the moment and he's hopeful she might be up for coming back… She's still spending a lot of time in the States and wants to move out there so it's looking more likely to be on the cards."
Turns out Simon was wrong in his decision to axe the singer two seasons ago. And it seems all Cheryl needed was an apology!

All you celebs out there that bum us out whenever we see you guys smoking: if Simon Cowell can quit, you can too!
Seriously, if there was one person we thought was too stubborn to quit smoking, we would have guessed Simon! On the flip side, he's so worried about his health and body that it'd be crazy for him to continue!
And guess what?
