Kelly RowlandKelly Rowland is in "final negotiations" to join The X Factor.

The Destiny's Child singer and Mexican superstar Paulina Rubio are expected to be announced as the new judges on the FOX singing competition on Monday, TMZ is reporting. After weeks of speculation, the pair are said to be signing a deal this weekend to sit alongside Simon Cowell and Demi  Lovato on the judging panel for the program's third season. They would replace departing judges Britney Spears and L.A. Reid.

Kelly is no stranger to reality shows, having been a judge on The X Factor UK in 2011, while Paulina coached for The Voice Mexico. This comes after Simon announced on Twitter yesterday, "We start x factor auditions in charleston on Tuesday. The new panel will be announced Monday. This is going to be an interesting show! (sic)"

His right hand man Louis Walsh also recently revealed the music mogul was looking to shake things up with a female-heavy panel this year. "I think he's going to use three girls. Three girls and Simon. He wants to be the only male there ... It's like Charlie's Angels. I think it will be Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell, Kelly Rowland and another," Louis said.
